Grand Junction, Colo (KKCO) --- When school gets out for the summer, teachers say their biggest concern is that their students will forget everything they have learned during the year.

This is often referred to as brain drain and now there is a way to prevent that from happening.

Educational toys are a great way to engage children and help them boost their reading, writing, math and science skills without making them work for it.

Math is one of the most difficult subjects to retain when it is not constantly being practiced, but according to the National Association for Music Education, math becomes easier to learn when incorporating music.

There toys can engage both of these aspects and also focus on hand-eye coordination, fine motor control, creativity and imagination.

Discovery Toys has built their business on offering products that are educational, yet fun for kids, so they learn without even realizing it.
