Lakeshore Learning $25 giftcard Giveaway! (CLOSED)

We're all about having toys and activites around here that contribute to learning and growth. That's why I was excited to learn about Lakeshore Learning.
Lakeshore Learning is a website full of educational activities, toys and gifts for kids.
Taken from their website, "Our mission
Lakeshore is dedicated to creating innovative educational materials that spark young imaginations, instill a sense of wonder and foster a lifelong love of learning. With materials for infants & toddlers through the 6th grade, we help children reach developmental milestones and achieve educational goals—while still having fun! We know that each child is unique, and we strive to develop materials that appeal to children of all interests, backgrounds and abilities. And, of course, all of the products we carry must meet stringent quality & safety standards—so they’re strong enough for daily use in the classroom and safe enough for use by babies and children."

You can brows the site by category, price range or narrow your search by age group.

I plan on browsing around some more on the Free Resources page that has lesson plans, activities and printables.
I took a look around online and thought the prices were good. I found a magnetic dart board that I thought the boys would love. I was right, Elijah was so excited to pull it out of the box when it arrived.
It's sturdy but light enough we were able to use just a thumb tack to hang it up on the wall. No assembly required and easy to hang! Perfect!
Of course the boys wanted to play right away.
I was a little disappointed that the darts didn't stick as well as I imagined. We had to get pretty close in order for the darts to stick. But that didn't seem to bother the boys at all they just kept picking them up and trying again.

They still had a lot of fun and are getting better at it as they practice.

Lakeshore Learning has offered our readers 25% off any single non sale item! Use this link.

Plus they are giving away a $25 gift card to one of you to use online or in store!

Although I received free product from Lakeshore Learning, the opinions reflected here are my own and was not influenced by the company or free product.

Wow, they have a lot of great educational tools on there, too. I may have to bookmark this sight for the future.

I think I'd get the Giant Polydron Builders ~ my brothers had a smaller version of these growing up, and my mom still has them for the grandkids now. They are still a hit!

Thanks for the entry!!

My sister has young children under the age of 6 and this would go to her. She loves going to the store that is about 45 minutes away from her house. She thinks that they have marvelous items and can find such grand things there for her children.

I love Lakeshore for my teaching supplies, but with this I'd get a toy for my new grandson, like the See-Inside Sorting Bucket.
