As you may know, I have been focusing more on preschool activities with my son. I’m doing this to start introducing him to some of the things he will need to know for kindergarten. I believe one of the most important things I can teach him in these early years is that learning is FUN. If I can get him excited to learn at an early age, then I have succeeded. That is why when I found out about Pom Tree Kids, I knew it would be a perfect the perfect compliment to our little home school.
Pom Tree offers creative kits that get your kids, playing, experimenting and problem solving. For example this ice cream stand that fits together like a puzzle and is constructed with no glue or adhesive (can I get an Amen from the mommas?)
My son loved playing with these sets, building and taking it apart over and over. I don’t get that about boys. Why is it so much fun to take everything apart? Of course, he took it apart and then tried to put it back differently, which is where the experimenting and problem solving come into play.
They also offer a Mega Kit and Sticker Tub that I wanted to incorporate into our actual preschool lessons, so I came up with the idea to play around with numbers.
My Numbers Book:
What we used:
- Mega Kit
- Sticker Tub
- My Numbers Book Cover Printable
- Number Practice Sheet Printable
- Hole Punch
- Print the Cover and Number Practice sheets
- Decorate the cover of the numbers book using the foam and felt pieces from the Sticker Tub and the Mega Kit.
- Form a number with the materials in the Mega kit.
- Practice writing that number.
- Count shapes out of the sticker tubs and add it next to the number (no glue needed.)
- Punch holes in the pages and bind the book together. I also used materials from the Mega Kit for this also.
We do one number at a time, so we can be sure we’re taking our time and focusing on it individually. Then we just add the number to our book.
*Although Pom Tree Kits require no glue, I did choose to go back and glue the numbers to the page for this activities.
