To help kids learn anything, you have to involve them in that action. If you want your child to learn addition, make it an interactive activity. Get some marbles, or peas, or fruits together, to show them how to add.
In just a few videos, Simone has blossomed into wanting to interact and work in the kitchen. I am so happy with her efforts, that to reward her, I got her a Chef outfit consisting of a chef’s hat and an apron. I got it as an outfit from onestepahead.com for about $25 total.
You should also consider getting your children something personalized. If you can’t afford it, you can use a magic marker to personalize the object, to give the child something that is ‘theirs’.
Here’s a video of Simone getting her new chef outfit.
