On Sunday’s, we usually go out for breakfast, the kids will draw pictures on the back of the placemats or colour the pictures provided at the restaurant.
Today we ended up learning about the basics of fractions. When Evelyn opened her napkin she noticed that it was divided into four sections and proceeded to count them. This led to the concept of fourths and adding them up to make a whole (even though the parts weren’t equal in size they were close enough to demonstrate the concept). What a great opportunity to learn some math 🙂
Later in the day, Evelyn wanted to learn how to use the Klutz crotchet kit, which she is still a bit young for, she wouldn’t let us dismiss it again but insisted that we figured it out. So we pulled out the instructions and I tried my hand at the chain stitch, apparently I am not very skilled at deciphering crotchet instructions, do dad decided he would figure it out for us. It wasn’t as easy as he thought, but he persevered and figured it out.
