Play Dough Color Theory for Preschoolers

Teaching primary and secondary colors with play dough

What kids don’t love play dough? I know mine do. One of the things they love most about dough is mixing the colors. If I’ve spent money on little yellow tubs of dough, the very last thing I want them doing is mixing it into mud. So that doesn’t go over very well around here. […]

Scavenger Hunt for Early Readers

One of Grace and Allie’s favorite activities is to have a scavenger hunt.

A Prayer for the Homeschooling Mom

I struggle with homeschooling every day. I used to struggle with a child who didn’t want to learn. She’s past that phase, willing to learn and participate, but I struggle now with my own discipline.
