Grab your white paper roll and markers. We are going to learn color words by moving!
Yup! That’s right!
Your next Breakfast Invitation will get the little people moving as they learn.
Just like going to a brisk walk fires up our thinking, so does hands-on learning for children. The more we get them moving, the more we can engage and rev up the exploration of new ideas.
And the truth is, doing so is easier to do than you may think! And this color words game is a hoot!
What do you do when your children love hot lava as much as they love snacks?
You make fine motor hot lava games, of course.
My boys love hot lava.
I find that it can sneak up into our living room, and also make it’s way into the cracks of the parking lot. Hot lava seems to be everywhere. And who knew? I am thinking that hot lava and kids seem to be this unspoken language that unites them all. Apparently, it’s a thing and I am determined to run with it.
Move over spiders. Turkeys are finding their way into our play.
And who doesn’t need some turkey in our lives? Even us vegetarians can make room.
So let’s spice up with this super quick and easy Turkey Trot Breakfast Invitation.
There are SO MANY important math skills being introduced here:
By Kindergarten, children will be asked to understand that the last number name said tells the number of objects counted.

Something interesting has happened since my oldest started preschool.
What happened, is that my middle guy (three-years-old) has come out of his shell and is beginning to take risks with his learning at home.
You see, my 4.5-year-old means EVERYTHING to my three-year-old. According to him, he’s the coolest, smartest best friend a brother can have.
But something happens when the two of them are learning together.
My oldest takes the lead and my middle guy follows along not ready to take chances with his learning. He doesn’t want to get it wrong in front of his biggest idol.
So where multi-age learning is important, it is also important for me to check in with my three-year-old and create simple set-ups that we can do together to reinforce some basic skills for Kindergarten Readiness.
