It is really simple to include preschool learning in your daily play at home with no extra resources and no preparation work. For busy parents this is great news! I am constantly full of guilt at not having enough time to do awesome activities with J while my self care goes out of the window. With these easy preschool maths activities I can feel better about doing some focused learning play with J and have time in the evening to veg in front of the TV or indulge in reading a book. A definite win win situation!

The best feature of slime is that it makes no mess so can be played with anywhere. Since it is almost Halloween, I decided to make some Pumpkin Slime this week.
