learn & play with gems

What could be more irresistible than colorful, sparkling gems? For about $5, you can create lots of activities for young children that will motivate them to engage. Here are just a few:
-add gems to your sand in a sensory table (we used gems in our red sand)
-press gems into modeling compound (we used gems in Bubber)
-use gems as counters for math activities (shown here with Valentine’s hearts)
-sort gems by color and/or shape
-create patterns with gems
