Math with Toy Cars!

Here is a simple way to learn basic math skills: use TOY CARS!

Prep Work:
  • Find addition flashcards (Dollar Store), or just write simple addition problems on pieces of paper, or a dry erase board.
  • Gather up a handful of toy cars. OR you can use any other small toys your child has several of.

Here's what you do:
  • Show an addition problem and help your child count out the numbers and add them together to get the answer! :) 
Easy as pie!

Re-post: Physical Activity Cube

Originally posted: April 7, 2011

To get a little more physical activity into our days, I made this exercise cube! Here's how I made it:

  • Using white card stock, cut out 6 squares. (Mine are about 6"x6" squares.)
  • Write the activities on each square.
  • Tape the squares together using clear packing tape.
  • Before you tape the last square on, stuff in a few pieces of crumpled newspaper to give it more stability.

Here's what's on it:

  • Spin in a circle.
  • Jump 5 times.
  • Flap your arms like a bird.
  • Hop on one foot.
  • Dance!
  • Run from the front door to the back door.
The boys love it!
