The Learning Resources Tape Measure is a must have learning tool for young children. It’s perfect for reinforcing early math skills. This product is largely sized but not overly making it ideal for little hands to control and use. The tape measure has a soft-grip handle as well as a manual wind up crank. The crank is great for little ones to practice and master fine motor skills by reeling it back up. The colors are of green, purple, and yellow making making it gender neutral i.e good for either a girl or a boy.
The tape displays inches & feet on one side, centimeters on the other! It also features a double-sided tab for easy use. Frustration Free! It’s simple, straight forward, and the perfect measuring tape for children who want to measure everything they come across!
My daughter has gotten a lot of use out of the Simple Tape Measure. We’ve used it for our homeschooling as well as for pretend play. She learns the best from doing something herself so any sort of manipulative activity. One activity that we did together with the measuring tape was to measure various items around the house. I laminated a sheet of items that could be found around the house, had her locate these items, and then measure them! She had a blast and was learning how to compare, contrast, and estimate!
Both my children ages 4 1/2 & 2 1/2 years old had no problems using tape measure. There’s been no fear of getting pinched or cut by retraction. The winding it back up came easily to my son and daughter. My kids can safely learn & play imaginatively to their hearts content! This product has been wonderful and it’s held up great use after use.
This product will be getting ton more use in our home and I can’t see my kids excitement of using it faltering any time soon. Highly recommended and perfect for children age 3-6 years old!
