|The Boys Ready to Test Out|
Hot Wheels Spiral Stack-Up Playset!
School is now over and my 5 kids, ages 5- to 10-years old are out in full force! Therefore, I find that on rainy days and lazy days, it's essential to have activities available when the kids are indoors. The combined activity of building a playset and then playing Hot Wheels cars with it, keeps my boys occupied in a constructive fashion. They love to build new track structures and roadways, problem-solve when they're not architecturally sound, and use their imaginations when playing cars together.
I've mentioned previously that studies have shown that play improves memory, language skills and can help with academic focus. It's simple to engage kids with educational play-based activities, and to continue the learning process all year round. The Hot Wheels FUNdamentals Learning Project is geared to teachers and parents of kids ages 3- to 7-years old, and is intended to encourage learning over the summer vacation. Choose from level JK/SK and grade 1 lesson plans, and then print out the sheets with just a click.
A short while ago I wrote about the Hot Wheels Super Speed Blastway playset, which my youngest sons really enjoyed. The boys also tested out the Hot Wheels Spiral Stack-Up playset, which was quite suitable for 5- and 6-year olds. Parent assembly is definitely required, but my 6-year old placed all the sticker decals on the set all by himself and helped interpret the instructions.
