As a mom of a 5 year old and preschool teacher, the Grasshopper Preschool Prep Kit was a welcome addition to our home. We used the Snip, Glue, and Grow kit which includes 10 hands- on games. The product was developed by an occupational therapist, so the activities and games focus on fine motor skills, while having fun! These skills are often a source of frustration for the preschool age children and Grasshopper Preschool Prep Kits make developing these skills fun and interactive. My son particularly liked the cutting activities and did very well following the directions and doing it correctly. I am definitely going to integrate this product into my preschool classroom this fall. Great activities, great product!
