I tend to be a more practical gift giver. There are the occasional fluff gifts I give, but mostly I like to give something that I know the person would use. For my mother in law we gave her a basket of stuff, including lots of everyday items. We added some of her favorite supplements, body wash, coffee, mug, lotion, etc. For my mom I gave her a gift card and took her out shopping to get a new pair of shoes. I like knowing that the items I get are going to be used and not just left sitting on a shelf somewhere. While shopping for the boys I wanted to get them items that were both fun and had some educational value. I'm sure from all my previous posts you can see that I like educational products for my boys when I can. Learning Resources is one of my favorite stores for fun and educational toys and games. Recently I received the Hide-n-Go Fish.
Hide-n-Go Fish is for children ages 2-4 years of age. Evan is just under that, but I still wanted to get it for him since he loves the Hide-n-Go Moo we received earlier in the year and this is similar. It comes with a blue fish bowl that has vinyl flaps on the top to help the 9 fish hide inside. The fish are made up of 3 colors, orange, green, and purple. There are 3 fish for each color and of the 3 they are each a different size. The fish are made of a a thick plastic. The fish snap together by their mouth attaching to a ball on the end of the tail. There are many ways you can play with the Hide-n-Go Fish. The fine motor and tactile experience with the feel of the fish and snapping them together. You can put the fish in the bowl and reach in for a certain size or color.
Evan loves putting the fish in and pulling them out of the bowl. In fact I often find other small toys in the bowl also. He likes to put anything and everything that fits in the bowl. He likes to hide Jayden's hot wheels in there too. Evan has been able to pull apart the fish and even snapped them together once. I love seeing him try and use his small muscles. Jayden will even play with him too. As a teacher I think about all the great things I can do with this. Just the fish bowl alone I see many games and activities that can develop. Young children often enjoy tactile activities and can benefit from a fun guessing game of what is in the bowl based on touch. The fish are fun to snap together and you can even make a pattern with colors and/or size.
