Hey guys! Summer is officially over here in the Netherlands. Today, was the first day the kids head back to school. For our homeschool activities, we’re getting back into the full swing of things, too.
The only ‘problem’ we have is that Daddy is off of work. Last week, we took his first week of holiday off for some quality family time and lots of fun activities together. This was the first time in two years that Hubby wasn’t working on the house! And we had a completely unplanned technology detox. I have to admit it was quite a bit glorious.
Now, Y is going to (public) school and we are getting into our homeschool activities and finishing off the house/moving and preparing for baby while hubby still has two more weeks off from work. It’s pure chaos, but it’s absolutely wonderful to be so close to having our house be done!
Anyway, anyway. All of this to say, fall is heading our way! This of course means the start of all things apple, pumpkin, and wonderful! To celebrate the start of the new school year, I am sharing a lovely little freebie with you guys! A favourite with Y – apple number clip cards!
I like to keep the presentation of these types of activities very simple, keeping a few things in mind:
- Use a tray to hold the materials in place
- Present the exact number of clothes pins that your child will need to complete the activity
- Place all objects, including the cards onto a bowl or plate to prevent them from moving around.
- Make sure that the clothes pins you choose are convenient for use for your child. Make sure that they are not too small and do not easily break.
Y has been really into counting in the different languages that he speaks. These cards were perfect for reviewing number quantities and practicing counting!
