The ABC mat came in handy, once again, as a mat for a bean bag toss that came into play for a fun sight word game for Henry. We’ve used the ABC mat in the past for learning an ABC learning game, as well as counting blocks of towers. Its kind of funny to think […]

Get creative and paint some shamrocks as a St. Patrick’s Day craft using bubble wrap! Packaging almost always gets reused in this house before it gets recycled or trashed. Before we made our Bubble Pop Roads, Henry made a print with the bubble wrap [or 'pops']. I’m loving that St Patrick”s is coming up because I can […]

uppercase lowercase letters matching

Upper & Lowercase Letters: Heart Matching

Recognizing letters and learning their ABCs is one thing for a preschooler to learn, but learning both upper and lowercase letters I found is completely another.
