I’ve started looking out for little toys that work with what we’re studying that I know we’ll get a lot of use out of. So, here you see the boys playing with a small Playmobil Egypt set. We’re studying ancient Egypt right now and the kids had a lot of fun playing with it.
Toys we have right now that go with our studies:
Playmobil Egypt (which my kids are nuts for and ask to learn about history because of).
Legos (see tomorrow’s post for the specific way we used it last week)
Toys I plan to get in the near future to continue with this (all of these are things I know the kids will use A LOT). Don’t do this for a one time thing, that would get expensive.
Roman Legions (I want to find similar for Greece, fingers crossed)
Insect toob-for an upcoming experiment, and for general keep hands busy while I read the science text.
figures of mythological creatures to go with our Greece study (I’m getting the minotaur today with my coupon from Michael’s).
