Summer break doesn't have to mean a break from learning - in fact, summertime is a great opportunity to encourage your children to continue their education at home! There are so many great apps, books, websites, and games out there made for at-home learning, and Mom's Choice Awards has amazing options for parents who don't want their kids to forget everything they learned during the two months they're out of school.
These award-winning products are also great for supplying additional learning materials to your children during the school year! For me, I always struggled the most with math classes (I have always leaned more into English and reading). Having additional materials and resources I could use at home to learn the topics that were most difficult for me really helped me understand them better. Here are some of our favorite math-centric, educational products to help keep your little one learning, even when they're at home.

Pebbles and the Biggest Number
