Teaching math

Math is very important to know in life!So why not make it easier on kids and start teaching now. Here are some fun ways to start.

 Beach ball math fun! 
on a beach ball write numbers then toss the ball back and forth with Ur kid/kids and what ever number ur hands land on either add the number or subtract. (can also do multiplying)



counting crocodiles
On a piece of paper or a color swatch (I had some from moving) Put numbers and dots. Then paint some clothes pins and add the same number dots on the clothes pins. Add some eyes too to make them crocodiles. Once dry let Ur kid/kids match them up. You can also ask math problems and have them place the right crocodile on the right number.

counting cup cake liners
put different numbers on cup cake liners and have your kid fill them with items. Can sue anything we just used clothe pins.

Organizing for summer cheap!

Recently I made my way to my local dollar store(same as Poundland in UK) and I am so happy I did. There was so many bins and buckets in many colors. So here is how I cleaned up my kids summer toys. For small balls, chalk, and bubbles I grabbed 3 small bins as seen above. For water toys I grabbed a big blue bin and I made sure all bins I bought had holes rather they were for wet toys or not. We got small bugs in our storage room and I am hoping the holes would kept bugs from setting up home in the bottom of the bins. Some other ideas we like to use but have not yet are... Trash bin for bigger balls or large shoe rack works too Clothes hamper for pool toys & Mesh bag for sand toys Before we really even got some what organized we use to use crates but I found that with many kids going threw creates to find certain toys it quickly got messy so I really like the idea of having bins for certain toys. I also like that the bins are smaller then the crates we were using so that the smalle…

Fizzing planets

I am sure I said this before but this really was one of my personal favorite actives. It came out amazing and my son loved it. Would for sure do this again. 
So it is simply called fizzing planets. You mix a little bit of water in baking soda and add food coloring to color it like the planet you choose. I went by a simple google picture to color the planets and then I realized I got some wrong but we also had a book to look at and read to see some real colors.  Once you make your planets let them cry for a couple of hours. You can place them in the freezer to speed this up. 

Then slowly pour vinegar over the planets to see them fizz! It started to look like a Galaxy then in the end it ended up looking like one big planet.





So neat!
