Toddler Science Fun At Home Learning: Educational Insights Toys!

Hey All!

We’re back with another fun at home learning theme learning day idea! Once again complete with fun educational toys. If you didn’t check out my previous post, this a series of posts I’m sharing for our learning schedule each weekday. One theme we love to do each week is science and reading. Today I’ll be showcasing some of the amazing educational toys from Educational Insights that I use some what during these themed days. They have the best science and reading themed learning toys. They make amazing toys that help your toddlers prepare for kindergarten and learn everything from insects to animals to plants, everyday items and more!

Before I get into how we use our Educational Insights toys as part of our at home learning, here is what our science and reading themed learning day schedule consists of:

7AM – 8AM: Eat Breakfast
8AM – 9AM: Science themed Learning Toy Play
9AM – 10:30AM: Science Themed Books/Reading Time
10:30AM – 11AM: Morning Snack
11AM -12AM: Free Play time and clean up time (Play with Dinosaur Toys)

We do our best to stick to this type of schedule Monday through Friday. Again, we adapt it to each themed day. We’re doing our best to stick to this schedule, but we try to be flexible as our day progresses.

For some of our science learning we love to use a series of toys from Educational Insights. We’re obsessed with their line of GeoSafari Jr. learning toys! We were gifted the Talking Microscope which features the voice of Bindi Irwin.

It’s a fun toy microscope for Kids, STEM & Science, and interactive learning toy. It’s for Ages 4 and up, but we love to look at all the slides together.

It’s the only talking microscope for kids! This new, colorful update to the original GeoSafari Jr. Talking Microscope introduces preschoolers to even more amazing animals, plants, and household items. There are 5x more images to view and learn about and 20 total prepared slides. Little ones choose from Fact Mode to learn about the items on a slide or Quiz Mode to test their scientific skills.

Now with two comfortable eyepieces, there’s no need to close one eye to explore. Plus, cleanup is a snap: all slides fit neatly inside for easy, convenient storage. Take a closer look with the only talking microscope for preschoolers packed with photo-quality images and audio about the amazing, up-close world of animals, plants, everyday items and more.

We’re trying to get a head start on Kindergarten, as our doctor says our boy is a little advanced. He knows all his numbers and letters in both English and Spanish.

It’s crazy I know! Educational Insights Hot Dots Jr. Let’s Master Kindergarten Reading Set is really for Ages 5 and up. We let him do some of the lessons and practice his writing skills with it.

These two-book sets with included Hot Dots Ace – The Talking, Teaching Dog pen provide children with 100 lessons on a variety of reading and language arts skills appropriate for kindergarten, from simple comprehension and vocabulary to spelling and punctuation.

Fifteen of the 100 lessons are challenge activities that prepare children for skills at the next grade level. It includes two 50-page books with a total of 100 lessons and the Hot Dots pen.

The pen requires 2 AAA batteries (not included). It makes getting ready for kindergarten so much more fun.

These are just two of the amazing learning toys you can find from Educational Insights. They have so many amazing learning toys, you have to check them out on their website.

Thanks again to Educational Insights for sending us some of their amazing toys! We buy them already, so it’s amazing to have the opportunity to feature a brand we love and use daily for our learning!
