Waterway Pipe Builders
With our fun-filled builders, kids can create twisting, turning constructions that are perfect for water play! Kids just pour water in and watch as it flows through the translucent pipes! You get 52 pieces; longest piece measures 5".
Lakeshore Magnetic Fishing Set
Children get a “bite” every time they play with our magnetic fishing set…and build essential eye/hand coordination at the same time! Children use magnetic fishing poles to “reel in” 18 colorful fish…and the sea creatures are specially weighted to float upright—for frustration-free fishing. Set includes 4 durable plastic fishing poles that each extend to 18 1/8".
Rainbow Scratch Paper at Lakeshore Learning
Make this summer a real page-turner with a DIY Reading Jar! Let kids add a “reading gem” to the jar each time they hit a reading goal, such as finishing a book or 20 minutes of daily reading. Set goals and decide on special rewards together, such as a family movie night for 5 gems or dinner at their favorite restaurant for 10. Be creative and have fun! #lakeshorelearning #reading #summerlearning
Magnetic Pattern Block Builders
With magnets built right into the edges, our easy-connect pattern blocks encourage hours of creative building fun! These colorful, translucent blocks come in a variety of fascinating shapes children love to mix and match. Powerful magnetic edges help the blocks stick together from many sides and angles, making it easy for kids to build up and out. Best of all, as children explore and create, they get a hands-on introduction to geometry! You get a set of 46 durable plastic blocks in 6 shapes…
See-Inside Magnetic Blocks
Our innovative blocks are translucent on all sides—giving kids an up-close view of magnetism in action! As children build with the blocks, they can see the embedded magnets flip to create a solid, no-fail connection every time…whether kids construct upward or side to side. The set includes 36 durable plastic blocks in 2 shapes and 6 colors; each block measures 13⁄8".
Squeeze, Scoop & Count Ice Cream Shop
Make counting practice a real treat! Kids count from 1 to 10 while adding scoops of “ice cream” to a banana-split counting tray—building fine motor skills as they squeeze, scoop and play. Set includes a ball storage container, 2 counting trays, 2 easy-grip scoops, 30 foam ice cream balls and an activity guide. Counting trays measure 11 1/4" wide.
Creating fun, one-of-a-kind robots is a snap! Kids mix and match parts in 9 different shapes to build a variety of freestanding robots that are ready for adventure. Our durable wooden builders feature easy-snap connections that help children sharpen fine motor skills as they create up to 6 bots at once—practicing shape recognition and open-ended building as they go! Set includes 36 builders; largest measures 2 3/4" in length.
Sift & Find Alphabet Shells
From letter recognition and alphabet order to simple word building, our kid-pleasing shells reinforce early language concepts—as kids scoop and sift! The 26 plastic shells each have an uppercase letter printed on top…and come with a sifter and guide—in a 6 3/4" bucket.
