Games are an excellent and fun way for kids to learn and in fact they often don’t even realize that they are learning! We use games often in our homeschool and I love that we can pull out a quick game when we have a few extra minutes and sneak some meaningful learning into the day.
Summer is approaching and with it come long days and playful children. Hot days with active kids can equate to a momma feeling a wee bit tired, especially when she’s been up since the crack of dawn with children who awake at the first light.
The weekend of November 20th I packed up the kids, the van, and my favorite husband (don’t worry, he’s the only one I have but he’s still my favorite) and we headed off to Chicago for the Toy and Game Fair at Navy Pier. Being my first toy and game fair I wasn’t sure what to expect but it turned out to be an absolute blast!
Are you looking for a gift for a child who loves dinosaurs?
At the age of four, our son began his love (and obsession) with dinosaurs. For the next year or two everything was about dinosaurs. During that time we accumulated a lot of dinosaur toys, books and puzzles.
So, I have put together a list of suggestions from first-hand experience of seeing what a child who loves dinosaurs is interested in.
We have a few Peanuts lovers in our home who are so excited for The Peanuts Movie to come out. They’ve been watching the old Peanuts movies and our son has been reading Peanuts comics any chance he can get.
With all the Peanuts hype I knew it was time to put together a little Peanuts learning fun. And with Halloween approaching, what better book and movie to use than It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!
