I’m forever trying to get Pops outside to play, she’s such a homebody… which isn’t a bad thing but now the weather is nicer I want to make the most of it. It helps the kids blow off steam too which is nice come bed time.
I still remember running around the playground with metre sticks listening to it click along as a child. The Learning Resources Outdoor Measure Mate is much more than just a metre stick though.
With 5 uses and 7 pieces the Learning Resources Measure Mate is a great way to get your kids out having fun and learning at the same time, they can be used inside as well but being outdoors will give them much more space and ways to use it;
Vertical measure – to measure freestanding objects
Callipers – to measure internal and external dimensions of an object
Trundle wheel – to measure distances
Spirit level – to discover whether a surface is level (horizontal) or plumb (vertical)
Measuring stick – to be used as a ruler
I’m a big fan of the quality you get from Learning Resources and this doesn’t disappoint. It is colourful, big and sturdy and I love that they include a bag for you to keep it all safe and together in when you’ve finished using it. If your kids are anything like Pops then i’m sure you can relate to how many different places you find bits of the same toys in. It’s really easy to take apart and put together, I was a little worried at first because so many toys have fiddly little buttons to press but this just pulled apart.
Toys that are both fun and educational are the perfect gift, they even get you out all playing together and making memories.
