Puzzles, Logic Games, Critical Thinking, and Learning Manipulatives for Kids!

Logic and Thinking Skills have always been the most important tenets of the education I have provided my own children.

As a homeschooling parent, I often say, “I’m not teaching them WHAT to learn… I’m teaching them HOW to learn…”

So, for 20+ years, I have surrounded my family with endless means of constantly encouraging the use of logic and the development of critical thinking skills.

Through books, games, puzzles, and more, we all still thoroughly enjoy exercising our brains!

From infant to adult, the entire family will LOVE these suggestions!

Right now, this Guide is SPGFAN Sampler Style.

But, as I add more, I hope to break these ideas down into more specific categories.

For now, though, browse through the images. If you see anything that interests you, click on that photo to learn more. You will also see other related product ideas when you do.
