Welcome to JumpStart Toys, LLC's blog! We plan to share insights, research and opinions about kids toys, the importance of playtime, how to maximize the value of the toys you purchase and kids development.
Take a new approach to stuffing your child's stocking this year. Instead of all that candy, find small educational toys, travel toys and games, or other items to put in their stockings. The key is to find stocking stuffers that capture your child's interest and imagination.
Here is one stocking stuffer idea that won't break the bank, is loads of fun, and uses basic chemistry also! It's called InstaSnow and it's for children ages 4 and up. This non-toxic powder explodes into "snow" when water is added. It's nontoxic and environmentally safe. It makes up to two gallons of "snow".
It's small and lightweight to mail. Since this product uses chemicals in the powder to create the chemical reaction, we recommend parent supervision. We like this science kit because it's educational, yet fun for kids because it taps into snow. This science kit would be especially cool for kids living in warmer climates that do not get to see snow naturally. It's a great way to link science with everyday life in a way that's relevant and entertaining for kids.
Dec. 19 and 20th are the last days to mail gifts for arrival before Christmas, so time is running out! Visit www.jumpstarttoys.com, select science and nature in the left navigation. Alternatively, type in Insta Snow in the search bar at the top.
Have an older child? Try the KaBam! game. It's light, small, fun and educational as well. Multiple players can play this game.
