Seashell activities

I seem to have back to school on my mind. Summer vacation here literally just started! No, really, summer holiday in the Netherlands begins in middle to late July! The kids here get six weeks off. Once school picks back up in September, I will be teaching English at our village school a few hours [...]

Strawberry number finger painting

Whenever I can, I try to combine learning activities with practical, real experiences that my children can relate to. Lately, one of Y's favourite foods has been strawberries! He can munch on an entire package in one go. Even baby N has been loving them! Of course, this has meant, we needed to do some [...]

Freebie Friday: Butterfly number cards

We are seriously into unit studies lately. I feel like it's just so much fun to create different types of learning materials. I do tend to get rather carried away with creating materials once I get started, but the thing about unit studies is that Y just keeps asking more and more questions the deeper [...]

Free Panda Number Cards for Chinese New Year

Counting is a very important skill for children to develop. In teaching little ones to count, it is very important to make sure they learn number quantity rather than only learning number order or even recognizing number symbols.
