Educational Insights Estimation Station Review & Giveaway



Math has never been my strong point, and the further my kids get in school, the harder is seems to get for me to help them with their homework. I am always looking for interesting tools to make it easier for us to understand the basics. At Educational Insights, I have found lots of fun toys that aren't just for playing. They actually teach kids and provide valuable tools that will help them get through the school year.




One of the newest items at Educational Resources that we recently received to review, is their Estimation Station.  This toy is simple and interactive. It looks like a gumball machine and you can fill it with all your kids favorite things like marshmallows, jelly beans and even toys.  It also includes a two ounce cube for scooping and an activity guide that provides detailed instructions on how to use the Estimation Station to help with counting, place value, comparing and ordering numbers, statistics and more.  Using the station makes things seem so much clearer than reading from a text book. You will see your children's eyes light up with understanding when they see the real life examples that the Estimation Station provides.




The Estimation Station is only one example of so many amazing educational toys that you can find at Educational Insights that are perfect for birthdays and holiday gifts. They also have board games for all ages, telescopes and microscopes, special needs toys, art and crafts and more. Their simple to navigate website allows you to look up toys by subject, brand, or theme to make it simple for you to find just what you're looking for.  They are one of my favorite shops and always one of my first stops for all my children's birthdays.



One lucky winner is going to receive the same Estimation Station that we received to review. To enter, just visit Educational Insights and tell me another item you would love to have.  For additional entries you can do any of the following, but you must complete this initial entry first.
