Get kids excited about doing chores around the house with a Domino drawing chore list!

Chore List with Dominoes & Numbers

This activity puts a spin on a boring chore list and makes it fun and even sneaks in learning! As a kid, I remember doing chores… and loving them! My mom always made them fun to do. She’d make a list of the chores to be done and number them. We’d call a number and […]

Beginning Letter Sounds Sort Game

I normally just wing it when it comes to doing learning activities with Henry. Just basing it off what I know he already knows and what I think should come next. Henry has most of the beginning letter sounds down, so I rarely touch on it at home. We have here and there, but not […]

A ‘Counting Up’ Countdown to Back to School

Henry’s getting pretty excited to get back to school in a few days. We had a preschool open house the other night, so Henry got to check out his new classroom and officially meet the teacher and her aide [though he already knew his teacher personally]. The following day we had a home visit from […]
