Happy St. Patrick's Day: Learning from Lucky Charms

We just wanted to wish everyone a Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Baby bookworm is 0% Irish.  But, it's always fun to get into the spirit of the day, and it gives me the excuse to eat some sugary cereal that truly is magically delicious!

We had a little fun with math at breakfast (does it cancel out the sugar if we are learning too?) by reading a few math-related books from Newmark Learning.  These books are meant for older children, but I think they work well for toddlers too. 

Then we used our magical cereal to do a little hands-on learning with patterns, comparisons, and counting.

Making patterns with marshmallows

The best part - eating, of course!

Remember a lesson doesn't always require extensive planning - it can be as easy as eating breakfast! I hope everyone enjoys a happy and safe holiday.
