Occasionally we create a genius activity at our property ... which means it is one that BOTH kids love and also is a hit for hours over and over!
A couple of weeks ago my neighbor offered us several of her child dolls as well as toys. My youngsters currently each have a pink stroller as well as they spend loads of time racing their cabbage patch dolls around the house in their strollers. My kid is frequently comprising new ready them that involve running and also chasing (something I allow my youngsters to do in certain parts of our property).
Because my little guy is really curious about numbers and counting, we made a decision to develop some stroller races that included counting, number acknowledgment, and enhancement.
We grabbed a tub of our round pit spheres as well as brought them to our racing area. I marked off the begin and also finish line, got hold of some paper plates as well as stuck some numbered notecards on them, and afterwards put them at the finish line.
Then we started with the video game!
Each child obtained their own plate with a number on it. My young child obtained simple numbers (1-3) as well as my child had harder numbers (6+).
They had to take a look at the number on their plate, fill their stroller with that said numerous rounds (I assisted my kid of course!), and then race down to fill up their plate with the proper number of rounds!
Once their plates were filled, we counted the rounds, saw to it they had the ideal number, and afterwards put them back in the strollers and raced back and also place them in their tub ... then we began across once more!
As the video game progressed, I made it harder for my kid by including two numbers to his plate. He had to add them with each other and then put the amount of the two numbers on his plate.
In some cases he required more than one stroller to obtain them there ... so he got creative! His little sister loved assisting him!
This was such a fantastic movement activity that also motivated understanding- our favored kind of learning activities for kids!!!
I assume we will certainly be utilizing this activity to instruct a variety of various other discovering skills since it was SO ENJOYABLE!
