Today's guest post is from the fabulous Jane at Mama Pea Pod. I love her blog. She recently had a Mermaid Party that I know my girls would have loved to attend. Ok, let's be honest. I would have wanted to attend too! The pictures just scream FUN!! Aside from all of Jane's fabulous child centered posts she also has a great series entitled - Time for Mama: Creative Playtime for Moms. The series is all about inspiring Mom's to find time for themselves and get creative. Be sure to check it out.
For now, I leave you to Jane. I know you will enjoy her post on Shape Symmetry Play. I love how she brings math into everyday play, making it fun and totally doable. Thank you Jane for sharing this fun idea with us here on Mom to 2 Posh Lil Divas.
Princess Pea and I have been playing with blocks and learning about symmetry in the process, with some super simple shape symmetry play.
We each build one side of a castle. I build my side first, then she has to copy it exactly on her side, matching up the shapes to make a symmetrical structure. It's great for shape recognition, problem-solving, and learning about geometry. As you can see, we didn't worry about matching the colours, just the shapes, but you could do that, too, if you liked.
I was impressed with how well she did with it, and she was very proud of herself, too!
Fun, play-based math learning, just the way we like it!
Thanks for having me over today, Bern!
