We recently made two new preschool purchases which I feel have a high return on investment!
A couple of months ago, I signed up for a free trial of ABC Mouse. We had seen the commercials and several people recommended it. We immediately fell in love with it! I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical that my 3-year-old would be able to maneuver a computer mouse and a somewhat complex computer program, but she caught on within an hour. They offer a tutorial for using the computer mouse, which we did first thing.
After spending some time on it each day, she figured out that she could redeem the tickets she earned for “prizes.” She has fallen in love with her virtual fish tank and hamsters. I love the fact that she is being challenged in math, reading, science, music, and art.
While it might not be exactly what you’re looking for, I think it is worth the free trial! They offer a discount if you buy multiple months, so I ended up buying a year-long subscription!
We also signed up for the Dr. Seuss book club. When you pay $5.95, they send you five hardback books plus an additional gift. These are awesome books at a total steal. Dr. Seuss books typically cost around $8 each, FYI. Once you receive your five books, you can cancel your subscription, which we did (and it was very easy)! This one is a no-brainer!
Both of these deals would also make great gift ideas for preschool and/or kindergarten-aged kids!
