{CSN - Elenco Snap Circuits}

If you follow our blog, you probably already know that we love CSN stores. They make shopping online really convenient, fun and best of all they have over 200 stores carrying over a million products, including tons of things that would be perfect for Christmas, including home decor, housewares, cookware, toys, bedding and much much more.

While I of course always make sure to get the kids some fun things for Christmas, I also love giving the kids gifts that they can learn from. But giving things are fun AND educational - that's my favorite combination!  If your kids enjoy building things or figuring out how things work, I found a great gift idea at CSN stores that I just love. It's the Elenco Snap Circuits Pro Board Game which kids can use to learn about electronics. It's recommended for ages 8 and up.

It comes with a board and over 75 Snap-Together parts to make over 500 projects. It has instructions for building things such as a radio, digital voice recorder, burglar alarm, doorbell and many more. The pieces easily snap together and it works with 4 AA batteries. Kids (and parents) can learn about meters, relays, transformers, diodes, get a better understanding of circuitry, and more. I love providing my kids ways to develop the confidence and satisfaction that comes with building things that really work.

Snap Circuits games have won tons of awards including: The National Parenting Center-Seal of Approval, Dr. Toy 100 Best Children's Products, Dr Toy Best Educational Products.
