Color Words Drive Up

It’s a preschooler’s dream color game activity!

Hot Wheels and bright colors make an excellent combo for learning.

In fact, my five year old ATE THIS ONE UP and the younger guys eagerly followed along.

My five-year-old is in a young fives class and I knew they have been learning color words. Since I haven’t done much reading with him at home, I was interested to see what he was retaining. Sure, I have a Masters in Reading, but I wanted this year to be a year of discovery at home as he received phonic instruction at school.

Come to find out, my five-year-old has nailed color words and this Breakfast Invitation was such a fun one to play with all my boys. See how I added variety for my three-year-old and one-year-old inside!

Fill the Empty Space

I’ll be the first to admit that Tetris is pretty addictive.

There is something about mixing the sizes and spaces that keeps me up all night wondering how it all fits together. Call me crazy, but Tetris changed the way I see the area and volume of a shape.

So, when I first saw this idea on @bare.nutrients I knew that I needed to add it to our collection of Breakfast Invitations. There was something so compelling about finding the right sizes and shapes to fit into the empty space similar to a Tetris game. Talk about a game that generated thinking and conversation!

Find Your Name; A Simple Breakfast Invitation

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! I’ve got your Breakfast Invitation secret weapon.

Kids love seeing their name. Like, loooooooooove seeing their name.

And so do we. We use our names to mark our success at workouts, sign off on an email, and to simply identify which Starbucks frappacchino is ours. We find it especially funny when it gets written incorrectly.

Names are a beautiful representation of who we are.

Let’s use names to help our children grasp a marker, identify letters, and hold their hand steady to design a circle as they find their name.
