Hi there! I’m Jennifer (aka Mama Jenn). I’m the homeschooling mom of five awesome kiddos. (You can read more about me, and them, here.)
As an educator, I’m always on the lookout for fun, hands-on learning tools. When my children were younger, I was very intrigued with how other mom bloggers were re-purposing wooden blocks to use for various educational activities. I came across lots of neat ideas, but I never got around to making any of them…
You know the story – great ideas, but little time to actually implement them…
However, when my daughter needed a pair of dice with the numbers 5-10 for one of her math assignments, my mind started reeling.
I needed something that was quick and easy, with little to no prep work required.
I wanted something that was fun (and didn’t make a clanking sound every.single.time my daughter rolled the dice! (With lots of kids, even the smallest amount of quietness can go a long way!)
That was March 2010 and I have been working on Education Cubes ever since!
*They are soft, which means no clanging dice on the table or floor.
*They are large (approx 4″ x 4″ x 4″), which makes them easy to see and easy for little hands to handle.
*The best part is that they are completely customizable! Just select from the 300+ sets of insert cards and let the hands-on learning fun begin!
