Some toys provide endless entertainment.  They’re just so much fun, no matter how many times you play with them.  When toys are that exciting and also educational, is when you’ve hit the toy jackpot!

My childhood is full of Hot Wheels memories.  My brother and I loved playing with all the cars and tracks and they have come a long way since we were playing with them!  It has been such a trip down memory lane for me to see my own children now loving their Hot Wheels!  And they are LOVING firing their cars up the tracks and racing them back down :)

Something newer in the world of Hot Wheels is the The Hot Wheels FUNdamentals Learning Program and it is that sweet spot of fun and education that I’m talking about.

The program is rooted in the belief that play based learning is a great benefit to kids and a way to keep them stimulated when school’s out. Studies have shown that play improves memory, language skills and can help with academic focus.

What is so amazing about this program is that entire lesson plans have been created by educators that are downloadable by teachers and parents.

The FUNdamentals Learning Program aims to provide teachers with lesson plans and resources that are designed to engage students aged 3 to 7 in fun activities that use the tactile experience of kid-friendly toys. Created by experienced educators, this program is accessible, easy to implement in your classroom and all lessons meet curriculum expectations.

  • Get free lesson plans that feature Hot Wheels® toys
  • Designed by educators to teach curriculum-based skills
  • Just download the lesson plan and print it out!
  • Check back often for NEW lesson plans!
