Minute to win it

With long winter breaks it can be difficult to fill in all that extra time in a way that best suits you and your child. It can be hard to balance that time with the stimulation your child needs.

If you are stuck indoors or you are just wishing for some snow, this simple little activity can get you up and moving around. Hide cotton balls (snowballs) around your home and give your child one minute to find them. To build their fine motor skills have them use tweezers or tongs to place them in an ice cube tray or egg carton. This helps them develop one-to-one correspondence. When the one minute has passed, incorporate some math learning by having them count how many “snowballs” they found and how many are still hiding.
