I have the pleasure of teaching the 4 and 5 year olds in our homeschool co-op for this semester. Once a week, I'm teaching them history in a fun way. We're going back in time and doing things they way they used to do them. I'm using the "My First Little House" book series, which takes stories out of the chapter books and makes it into picture books.

Drop the clothespin into the vintage tin.
Paperdolls. Find them here.
Pass the spool until the song stops (we sang nursery rhymes). Keep both hands in front of you, one kid has the spool hidden under their hands. The one with the closed eyes gets three guesses to figure out who has it.
3 legged races.
Walk with books balanced on one's head.
So much stinkin' fun! Have a wonderful holiday, y'all!ReplyDelete
