Review: Thinkplay Gears

Thinkplay Gears is such a fun and engaging toy for kids. It comes with so many projects to make. They start off easy and get progressively harder. My daughter loves to play with these and build different things beside what’s in the books. It’s definitely great to keep littles ones of screens and having fun building and being creative. 



We got this in our kindergarten curriculum kit from Timberdoodle. Since she loved the PreK ThinkPlay I knew she’d enjoy this one, too. The difference between the two is that this one has gears. So you can actually make things that move when you turn the crank. Our daughter loves that the wheel really move when you build a automotive and that the gears really turn. You get to see all the gears working together. I’d definitely recommend this as a wind STEM project that kids could do anytime either with the project books or by using their own imagination.

Review: Geoboards

A fun way to help kids get great hand-eye coordination isn’t with  Geoboards . I love that with these there are 4 boards included so you can use it with multiple students. The rubber bands are different colors and 2 different sizes. The pictures are fun, colorful and you get a bunch of them. My daughter really likes these. For some reason she thinks it’s so funny when the bands pop her. At first I just let her place the bands anywhere to get the idea of how to put them on. Then we started places them just on the white lines in the picture. She always wants to do more than one so I let her do as many pictures as she wants. I do wish there was a blanket picture so she could design her own things.
