This Breakfast Invitation is super simple to set up and packed with a punch of foundational skills.

One of the best ways to learn is through exploration.

Taking pieces, and moving them around for intentional, hands-on learning.

This indoor game was great for my five-year-old, and also perfect for my 3.5 year-old.

Different ages, and different personalities will extend in different ways. This is exactly what you are looking for.

Learning Through Play:

This Washi Tape Breakfast Invitation focuses on constructive play. Children are asked to take objects and move them along the lines of the tape from left to right.


But don’t be discouraged it lends itself into imaginary play.

Watching your child will tell you a lot about their learning style and how they think.

Set up in THREE minutes.

How do I know this? Because I timed myself last night. I began and 7:28 and was finished by 7:31. That is just about all I have time for on a Sunday night as I make lunches and organize backpacks.

You will also need THREE supplies.

Keep Breakfast Invitations simple.

  1. White paper roll

  2. Washi tape

  3. Glass Globs - these are small and a choking hazard. Use these if they are a good fit. You can also use the counting bears, paper clips, beans, pasta, rocks, etc.

This activity is also a great way to begin nonstandard measurement.

By Kindergarten, children will be asked to directly compare two objects with a measurable attribute in common, to see which object has "more of"/"less of" the attribute, and describe the difference. For example, directly compare the heights of two children and describe one child as taller/shorter.

Children will also be asked to:

Classify objects into given categories; count the numbers of objects in each category and sort the categories by count.

Preschoolers are not to master Kindergarten concepts now, but providing opportunities to explore concepts now will help them become more confident walking in that classroom door.

You can extend this activity with these conversation starters:

  • "I wonder how many glass globs you have on the football tape. Will you count them for me?”

  • “Let’s write the number of glass globs at the end of the line.”

  • “It looks like some pieces of washi tape are longer than others. Which line is the longest?”

  • “I wonder what would happen if we took the tape off and changed it vertical. Do you think it would still have the same number of glass globs? Let’s check.”
