See what fun, DYI activities I demonstrated on TV that you can do at home!

A few weeks back, I published a series of posts on preparing your child for kindergarten. In WI, like in many other states, the educational standards are being raised. This means our kids are expected to know more than just how to tie a shoe and stand in line when they enter the doors of their 5-year-old kindergarten class.

One of my favorite things about being a mom to young kids is teaching them at home. And I think learning can be a blast. In fact, you won’t find workbooks and printables for this age at my house. In my experience, hands-on learning is best for our little sponges.

I joined the hosts of Fox6 Real Milwaukee a few weeks ago to demonstrate some of these easy, fun learning games. All the materials and directions for making these at home can be found in these three posts: Teaching Pre-Kindergarten Skills {Part 1}, {Part 2}, {Part 3}.

Have your own favorite learning games? I’d love to hear about them in the comments.
