Educational Insights Puzzles for Kids: Teaching Them about Money, Time, and Vocabularly

Educational Insights is a company dedicated to making learning an interactive, enjoyable experience for kids. Based in Southern California, they manufacture products that have serious educational value–while maintaining the interest of your little ones. The designers of these products are seasoned educators and parents themselves, people that know best just how important it is for learning to be fun.

We carry several Match It Up! puzzles from Educational Insights. These puzzles are aids to keep your kids’ brains working while they play and learn about the concepts of reading and vocabulary (specifically synonyms and antonyms), money, and telling time.

These puzzles are perfect because with them, you can do two very important things that keeps learning fun for kiddos:

1) You can help them and play with them, making learning a special, social time, and 2) You can match up things your child is interested in–like cartoons, animals, or dinosaurs–and use it to encourage them in their quest for more knowledge.

Match It Up! Antonyms Puzzle by Educational Insights. 48 pieces.

Each set for each special skill comes with 2 puzzles, both of which have no clue as to what image your child will be building. Instead, they will look to the tray where they place the pieces and the back of the puzzle pieces. They will match up the concepts that go together. For example, on the antonyms puzzle they will match up “day” and “night” to correctly place a piece. On the money puzzle they will match up a written number such as “21.75” with a photo of two ten dollar bills and three quarters. At the end, they’ll see the full picture that all their knowledge has helped them build!
