Summer is over. And, I have packed most of our summer gear away. It’s at this time of year, I always find myself with the remnants of products in-hand, unsure if I should save them or throw them out. Mostly-used sunscreen, bubble solution, and broken down chalk all make this list. While I don’t have a proposed solution for the two formers, I love creating learning activities using chalk.
On the topic of play-based learning, I would love to remind you of some incredible opportunities to engage your children through play. First, the book, The Undeniable Power of Play, focuses on learning through play and hands-on activities. Want to engage in more playful learning with your kids? Check out the #PowerofPlay52 challenge on Instagram, and join in the fun! Car themed learning activities were a recent prompt, and here is a list of tons of car activities that you can try with your own kids at home.
