When I first saw these little wrap-ups I really wanted to get them. I thought they looked like so much fun. Each one has a bunch of addition and subtraction “boards”. What you do is start with the numbers on the left and wrap the cord to the answer on the right. For example; 7 - 1 you would start the cord on the 7 notch and wrap the cord to the 5 notch on the right. If you complete all the problems correctly then when you flip over the board all the lines on the back will be covered by the cord. These are really easy to pack in your bag and take with for the kids to do in the altar or when your waiting at the doctor, etc. I really like that they are very sturdy and the cord isn’t flimsy. These would make a great addition to any classroom or for some extra help if your child needs it. I definitely plan on getting the multiplication and division wrap-ups when I start teaching those concepts.
We have been trying out a lot of new baby items this year and here is another one we did not have for our first daughter. It is called Sensory Tissue Box . What makes this toy so much fun? Let's be honest babies love to get into things. We have tried before to let her play with a regular box of tissues. Big mess. The tissues were everywhere and they have like 250 tissues in a box, she torn them up to so an even bigger mess. Our daughter even went as far as to rip the box itself up. This sensory tissue box though is made of very soft fabric so she can not tear it up, it has 15 tissues so less to keep track of and the tissue can not be easily torn up either. This is the biggest positive of this sensory box in my opinion. Another positive to having this sensory tissue box instead of a regular one is that the tissues are different colors and sizes as well as having different textures to them. There are 6 see-through ones, 6 see-through ones that have dots on them and 3 crinkly ones. T
