Summer break is upon us, and while we hope kids have plenty of time to relax, unwind and enjoy family and friends and the great outdoors, we also know that a long lapse from learning may spell trouble when the school bell rings again in the fall. So we’ve rounded up some great green educational learning tools so you can help sneak in some academics disguised as fun over the next couple of months. It’s a tall order making math a desirable topic for some (most) kids, but these games and tools make learning math a super playful and engaging endeavor. If your kiddos like building blocks – help them take their math skills to new heights with wooden multiblocks which feature laser-etched numbers and increments that may be used to teach counting, addition and subtraction. These beautiful and artistic foreign language recycled posters and cards will have your child speaking a second language in no time. Make your own wooden photo flashcards featuring objects, people and places that interest your child, via this tutorial. Read on for more great learning tools!
