Magnificent Flying Machines
Looking for a fun way to combine math with drawing? Would your kindergartener like to draw a butterfly with you? In this activity, your child will practice matching cardinal numbers (1, 2, 3...) with dots on dice in order to create a beautiful butterfly. Because there is a reward (If she finds the right answer, she gets to draw!), your child will be more enthusiastic about practicing her numbers.
Additionally, this game introduces the concept of probability. An easy way to explain this to your kindergartener is to ask her, “What will probably happen?” or “Will you probably roll a 6?” Asking these types of questions is a great way to get your child to use critical thinking skills during the activity.
