Let’s take it old school. Our kids LOVE Monopoly! Set up board games in different areas of the house and let them play with each other or you play with them.
7. IN THE KITCHEN
Kids love cooking, baking, creating. For the most part, cooking provides our children with wonderful opportunities to also apply Math skills! Make some FUNKY Pizza’s and REAL COOL OVER THE TOP Milkshakes with them (like the ones you would spend almost $15 on if you went out)
