Birdy Boutique, a certified disabled veteran and women owned business, has added a variety of educational blankets for kids to its online store.
Barbara Kent, owner, and spokesperson for Birdy Boutique, explained that co-owner Joanna Serra, a former state level award educator, worked with her team to create Learning Blankets, a new brand under the umbrella of Birdy Boutique.
Birdy Boutique is a business built from the ground up by two immigrant sisters, Kent, a retired, disabled army veteran and Joanna Jozwik Serra, an award-winning educator. The company is a certified disabled veteran and women-owned small business certified through NaVOBA, NVBDC, and WBENC.
Birdy Boutique, according to Kent, creates products with purpose, encouraging children to play, learn and explore. Kent noted that learning is fun with its line of teaching items.
“Allow educational moments to happen naturally with the world’s first sight word blanket along with other educational blankets such as world maps, dinosaur names, yoga and meditation, butterfly and bird species, and more,” Kent stressed before adding, “As teachers and parents we are always seeking new ways to engage our children and students on their educational journey.”
Research shows that hands-on activities greatly enhance retention and learning. Sometimes learning activities, according to Kent, can seem too rote.
“We wanted to create the perfect combination of education, fun, ease and comfort,” Kent said. “When you can combine something that kids love and use – blankets (https://blog.birdyboutique.com/learning-fun-educational-blankets-for-teaching-kids/) – with fun facts, then it takes learning to a more natural place where it doesn’t feel like they are studying. Being able to lay down on the floor or sit on the couch with your child in a relaxed environment will likely provide a less stressful learning scenario.”
