Summer has come and gone so quickly this time around. We spent so much time in the sun, stayed up past bedtime, and tried so many new fun activities. Keeping my monkeys constantly entertained has been a challenge specially when working from home. While we had a plethora of activity books, arts and crafts, and outdoor time, I still find myself coming up with creative ways to entertain them.
Here is one of the educational activities I tried with my kids. They loved learning about spatial relationships. Thanks to the folks at education.com who shared this activity with me and exclusively on this blog!
Help your child with important vocabulary building by leading him through some easy, at-home activities designed to help him understand basic spatial relationships and the words used to describe them. You’ll start out with a short activity involving two jars and some handmade labels and then move on to building with blocks. Watch him acquire new vocabulary to express direction and position without even realizing that he’s learning! These activities that involve building, ordering, and rearranging materials will also help him develop strong observational skills.
