Spot the difference.
“Spot the difference” activity can be fun for kids. A child inside me also enjoys to spot the differences. It improves attention to detail, increases attention span and in some pages it enhances vocabulary.
Activity # 29
Parents serve as role models to their children. Parents are the first teachers. Children follow us all the time. Their inner voice is ours. We don’t need to preach them. All we have to do is set good examples for them and they will follow us! 🙂
Yesterday was a classic example to the above mentioned principle which I strongly believe and follow. I have become a better person in many ways after I realized that my kids learn from me.
While I was sitting and tangling ( my way of de-stressing) both my boys came and sat next to me to see how I do it. With in no time my Rockstar wanted to give it a try.
Zentangle is an easy method to learn creating beautiful images from repetitive patterns. It is a fascinating art form that’s fun and relaxing. It increases focus and creativity.

Sight Word Bingo.
This is a simple bingo game. Instead of calling out numbers, we use sight words.
This game reinforces recognition of sight words in a fun way.
Activity # 31
I don’t think these little plastic, interlocking bricks need any introduction right?? I love legos, the amount of time my Rockstar can spend with legos is unimaginable.
Why Legos ???
If we observe our children playing with Legos over a period of time we will understand that it increases creativity, encourages children to explore, experiment and take risk.
When a group of kids are playing it they learn to co operate with each other and develop team building skills.
Apart from all these I used lego bricks to teach fractions, addition and subtraction to my older son – my Champ.
We had celebrated Lego themed birthday for my Champ’s 8th year birthday and he received many legos sets as gifts!!
Now passed on to my Rockstar, a train table is used as legos table as well.
