    Paper Patterns: 

    Take out some red and white paper. Draw straight lines across the paper. Have your child cut on the lines to create strips. Then have your child create an A/B pattern: red/white pattern.  Add another color, cut strips and have your child make an A/B/C pattern.

    Clean the Cars. 

    Take your child’s toy cars or animals outside.  Bring a bucket of soapy water and a small brush or unused toothbrush.

    Have your child dirty up and then clean their cars/animals with the brush.  This activity teaches your child how to clean things and strengthens their hand muscles.

    Ice Cream Math 

    Materials Needed:  

    Tongs or tweezers 

    Paper 

    Scissors 

    Marker or Pen 

    Pom Poms or Cotton Balls 

    Cut triangles out of paper. *If you have, you can use brown paper so it looks like ice cream cones. Or maybe you can even recycle a grocery bag and cut out “cones” from that.   

    Write numbers on each cone. *For younger children numbers 1-10.  Older children going to Kindergarten or who have mastered numbers 0-10 can do numbers 10-20.   

    Then, use the tongs or tweezers to place the pom poms or cotton balls. Whatever you have at home, on top of the ice cream cone like “scoops” of ice cream until it matches the number on the cone. *As shown in the picture above. For example, if the cone says the number 5, there should be 5 pom poms or cotton balls on top of the cone.  

    Continue activity until all the cones have “scoops” of ice cream on them.  

    *For a challenge and practice, have your child write the numbers on the cones. Move the cone numbers out of order and have your child put back in order.
