Text books and test scores seem like a distant memory for kids during the summer months.

But there are some fun educational tools that can keep kids' minds sharp while they are away from school.

We had kids test products ranging in price from free to $75 to see which will keep their minds fresh without drilling them with too much school work during their vacation.

ABCmouse
ABCmouse is for kids ages 3 to 7 years old and has 450 lessons in six different levels. The first month is free, and after the free trial a subscription is $7.95 per month.

Khan Academy
For the tweens and teens, Khan Academy is a free resource with more than 150,000 exercises in math, biology, chemistry, economics, and more! Teens can even take a free SAT prep course on the website.

Printable Workbooks
Education.com offers printable workbooks for $4.99 each or you can pay $3.99 per month for an unlimited subscription. They offer books for preschool through fifth grade in a variety of different subjects.

Osmo Game System
For high-tech learners, there is a market for digital learning games, but the price is an investment. The Osmo Game System retails for $79.99 and works on the iPad and iPad Mini.

The set comes with a set of accessories that includes drawings, puzzles, and building words. Osmo combines traditional methods of learning with a digital twist. Children can create drawings using a virtual tracing method. They can create puzzles on the counter or spell words with clues. There are also games that can be played solo or with a group.

When you buy an Osmo Game System, you can choose to a school classroom one free of charge.

If you are looking for traditional educational tools, such as flash cards and workbooks, you can find them at discount stores, such as Walmart. Prices there start at $2.66.
We even found an entire section devoted to educational supplies at the Dollar Tree, where workbooks, learning resources, and games cost $1 each.
