Toys foster children’s creativity, from the action figures that inspire fantasies of being a superhero to the wooden blocks that inspire fantasies of being an artisan woodblock maker. Let their minds run wild with this Groupon.
$15 for $30 Worth of Educational Toys and Games
Educational aids in the guise of games, crafts, and home-school workbooks sustain year-round learning for vacationing schoolchildren. Experiment kits allow young scientists to meddle in the arts of snow-making ($12.99) and glow-in-the-dark spit ball shooting ($2.99), and dramatic play kits ($399.99) foster imagination, language skills, and Tony-Award aspirations.
The Learning Circle
While parents and teachers navigate the dense underbrush of educational materials at The Learning Circle, their kids clamber through the one-of-a-kind tree house that dominates the aisles. Math, science, and language-arts materials for grades K–eight mask a dose of learning in a layer of fun, making education as easy to swallow as a buttered-up fruit snack. While teachers find all the resources they need among the colorful rows, parents also benefit from a smorgasbord of home-school workbooks and summer learning programs that help to stifle the learning loss that often results from months away from the classroom.
