Must Have Manipulatives


In anticipation of summer travel, I’ve started sussing out cool, compact travel toys, and was reminded of one of our favorites: Lauri’s fabulous manipulatives. Lauri's Primer Pack is an expanded version of a small tote we own (no longer available), and offers great bang for your buck. Made of textured, easy to handle rubber, the set includes a 25-piece "locktagon" construction set, lacing and tracing cards and shapes, an alphabet puzzle, and four little shape puzzles.

Another great Lauri item for home and travel is the Stacker Pegs & Pegboard set. As homage to her love of all things covered in frosting, Laurel has taken to serving her finished pegboard creations as cake.
