Under the Sea Ocean Counters Review and Giveaway

 *This post is brought to you by Learning Resources.


If you are a regular readers of this blog, you know that I love educational materials or toys that can also be learning tools. It's one of the reasons that I love Learning Resources and have enjoyed so many of their products. They believe that play and learning can be found in the same items and I agree!

 In homeschooling my children, I often like to use a hands-on approach, giving my kids a visual and kinesthetic way to learn. It not only speeds learning, but the information tends to stick in their brains longer than if we only use workbooks. Particularly with math, these methods can really be helpful for kids of all ages.

Under Sea Ocean Counters are one of those toys that kids will love and parents will too. It's a hands-on toy with so many ways for kids to play! The set of 72 sea creatures comes in 6 colors and are great for counting, sorting, and matching. An octopus, whale, sea turtle, seal, shark, and sting ray are all included. They are so cute!


The counters are small enough that kids can hold several at a time, which is great for working problems. Because they are so small, each around an inch, you won't want children under 3 to play with them, meaning I try to keep them away from my youngest.

 Now for a Giveaway!

Now, one lucky winner is going to take a set of these home! Simply enter on the Rafflecopter form below if you are a resident of the U.S. and 18+. Good luck, everyone!


*I received a product for review, but my opinion is 100% my own. This giveaway is not affiliated with Facebook, Pinterest, or Twitter.
