Whimsical Learning With The Artful Educator
Whimsical learning with The Artful Educator is not only within reach, it is a ton of fun, too!
These fun learning tools are sure to be a big hit with your little ones who are learning the alphabet. And once the learning is done, they can be used to create beautiful decor for your child’s bedroom or play room simply by inserting them into a frame and hanging on the wall or perching on a table, shelf or other similar furniture item. They could even be inserted into clear page protectors and stored in a binder for easy access for children to flip through them whenever they want to.
I chose the letter ‘D’ because my nephew is turning three years old and that is the first letter in his name. I am always looking for great birthday gifts for family children that double as a fun experience for them and a teaching tool for their parents. His mom, my sister, is often finding learning ideas on Pinterest and other sites that she tries to create at home for her kids and she gets bored with the same-old, same-old the same as they do. I am absolutely sure she has never heard of this company or had something quite like the wall art and flash cards shown here to use with her kids, and so I think she’s going to love this just as much as they do.
I had fun looking at all of the items on this beautiful 11″ x 14″ wall art print with all of the things that start with the letter D. They even have “DNA” in there, LOL.
Personally, I’m partial to Dragonflies so I was happy to see one included.
I also like that the 6″ x 9″ flash cards contain items that small children won’t necessarily need to learn about, but that older age children will learn about in school. So, these cards can be pulled out throughout a child’s school years to initiate conversations and learning about more sophisticated items that will interest even older children.
I almost hate that my own children are too old for these now as they are 13, 16 and 22 years old. But, I am bookmarking this site to come back to and purchase items for them later when they have children of their own. I’m not interested in them becoming parents very soon, but my oldest daughter could potentially marry and start a family soon, so I intend to at least purchase a set of the alphabet cards and add them to the tote I’ve started with baby clothing and other items for when grandchildren do come along.
Why do I have a tote started, you ask? Simple. Our home was destroyed by a tornado in 2012 and we lost all of the baby and toddler furniture, clothing, toys and other things we’d been saving for when our kids started their own families. What gets me is that I’d spent several weeks immediately preceeding this natural disaster going through the attic and, along with donating some really random stuff we had stashed up there, had pared down the baby/toddler stuff to just the items I really wanted to save. Grr… all that work, and debating, and waffling about what to donate!!!
Fortunately we had good insurance coverage and were able to purchase new things like a crib, bassinet, baby tub, changing table, some clothing and other assorted items to have for later. For now, those items are stored away and just waiting… waiting… waiting! Words of wisdom, don’t store important stuff in the attic, opt for the basement instead (it’s safer).
But, I digress…
Head on over to The Artful Educator website and check out what they offer. It’s some really fantastic and beautiful stuff! Their items are constructed with quality materials and will last for years, even with the grabby, rough handling of small children. Prints are specially printed on recycled paper using vegetable-based ink from a local printer in Massachusetts. They are shipped in a cellophane sleeve with a cardboard backing and will arrive at your home in a bubble-lined envelope. My items arrived in perfect condition with absolutely no damage.
