My kids love playing peek-a-boo, so I'm already seeing plenty of games of hide and seek in our future. I started thinking that we can (and should) take the things that our kids love to do already and use them to make learning more fun. If your kids are old enough, try this: Get magnetic alphabet letters for the refrigerator and hide them around the house (use one room for little kids, the whole house for older kids). Give them some time to race around to find the letters and bring them back to the refrigerator. Help them identify the letters and put them in ABC order. If any letters are still missing, help them figure out which ones are missing by singing the alphabet song. What are some other ideas for teaching kids their letters (and numbers)? As an added incentive to contribute your ideas, you'll get another entry in my blog giveaway for commenting!!If you haven't entered yet, see the post below for all the contest details!
I am a stay-at-home-mom on a mission to raise my kids with a purpose. My desire is that my kids will look back on their childhood with fond memories of their time at home and as a part of our family - and my hope is that you have that same desire.
This blog will be a catalog of ideas (some original, some merely recorded from other resources) to use for every stage of parenting. Ideally, I would love for you to contribute your ideas too, so we can all benefit from the online community of moms - the mother 'hood, if you will!
