 Lakeshore Learning Gifts for Growing Minds collection

Hey guys! I have a really fun announcement to make! I’m taking over the Lakeshore Learning Instagram account this week and posting some of my favorite photos on their feed. My kids had so much fun exploring the Lakeshore’s Gifts for Growing Minds collection There was something for everyone — all three kids were beyond thrilled. Whether we were fishing for colors or opening up a fake store in our playroom, Lakeshore Learning had us covered.

Lakeshore’s Gifts for Growing Minds collection is a unique and exclusive assortment of educational toys & games designed to help parents get their children excited about learning. Featuring over 200 items for children from birth through age 11, the new Gifts for Growing Minds collection gives parents a fun way to make education part of children’s daily lives.

Immediately, Natalie and Caleb began creating fun designs with dough. I couldn’t help participating because of the lovely almond scent that the set has. This non-toxic adventure offers up hours of play!

As a child, this was my favorite thing to play with – a cash register! And my version wasn’t as cool as the Lakeshore Learning version! The real working cash register makes sounds and beeps and even has a credit card reader. WHAT?! Amazing. Coins and cash included – the fake kind of course.  Lakeshore Learning Gifts for Growing Minds collection

Our FAVORITE kit from the entire collection was this Deluxe Doctor’s Office.

Here’s a picture of everything you get. A complete dream come true for any kid!! We haven’t stopped playing yet. I’m actually really sick today… and Natalie is THRILLED. She’s filled 8 prescriptions so far. LOL!

** My suggestion is to buy a few of these for the holidays / birthdays and keep them in the house for easy access. Ah-mazing

We are a HUGE puzzle house – love puzzles, buy them all the time. My older children love the 1,000 pieces and above. We had to start Caleb out a bit easier… so we chose a 3 letter puzzle from the Lakeshore Learning center. He can put the pieces together by word, color or picture. Super!

And if you have any pet lovers, they will go bananas over The Pet Vet Clinic! Yes, the pup is included! Natalie was checking for symptoms, combing hair, wrapping boo boos – it was super fun! A great way for kids to use their imagination.
