MATH EQUATION DISPENSER β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € My Miss 6 is a huge Math fan, and likes to try and solve equations "just for fun". She often asks me to give her an activity so that she can practice Math, and I am all about maximizing that interest! (Heavens knows my own pathetic Math abilities might have been much better if I'd done the same as a child… πŸ€”) β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β € To meet her Math demands, I used recycled materials and gave this #EarlyMath activity a "gumball dispenser", magnetic, twist! ♻️ β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € I took two paper rolls and cut a little hatch door out of the bottom of each. Then, I affixed them onto a mini cookie sheet with some tape. I added in our magnetic number set, which also happens to include equation symbols, and a bowlful of pom poms. Last, I propped the cookie sheet up a bit so the poms would more easily roll out and downward. (The devil is in the details, right? πŸ˜‰) β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € When it was her turn, Miss 4 played in her own way, and decided to put as many poms down the dispenser as she could. Which is also okay! πŸ‘Œ β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € #MomHacks #EverydayPlayHacks #InvitationToPlay #recycleandplay @recycleandplay #SimplePlay #MontessoriAtHome #Montessori #EverydayInvitationToPlay #HomeschoolPreschool #Homeschool #Kindergarten #PlayIdeas #IndoorPlay #ChildLedPlay #PlayBasedLearning #PlayMatters #PreK #EarlyEducation #PerfectPreschoolPlans #EarlyYears #PreschoolIdeas #Upcycled #DIY #DIYMom #DIYToys #EarlyMath #Math #KidsDIY #PlayAllDay #BoredomBusters
