Today’s learning materials have moved beyond dry text books.
They come in all different mediums, shapes, and sizes and are as varied as each individual is. From DVD’s featuring fire truck safety songs to talking microscopes, there are plenty of creative resources to pique your curiosity and have kids learning something new before they know it.
These five online stores have something unique for every creative learning style and development.
Learning Supply Stores
Look for an online store for school supplies for teachers, parents and students. They offer a variety of arts and crafts, curriculum products, and interactive games. Stir a child’s imagination to create the next great Picasso! Their creative play materials encourage children to be more active with materials for puppet theaters or play kitchens. These stores will be a great resource for encouraging kids to learn through interactive activities.
All about discovery
Science is all about discovering the world around you. Creative learning materials will keep kids fascinated for hours as they explore rocks filled with specs of quartz or peek through a talking Geo Safari microscope. Science catalogs are all about “hands-on” creative learning at home. Kids can learn about the latest in technology, chemistry, and biology to get a jump-start on school.
