100 Fun & Easy Learning Games for Kids: Teach Reading, Writing, Math and More With Fun Activities

Yes, 100 Fun & Easy Learning Games for Kids is packed with innovative and exciting ways to engage kids in learning, but my favorite part? Each of the activities uses everyday household items.

As a mom, you know how important that is! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve never done “the perfect learning craft or activity” because it required that I run to the store to grab supplies. 

100 Fun & Easy Learning Games for Kids uses things like tin cans, rocks, plastic bottles and construction paper–things already in our homes!–to put together these fun learning moments for kids.

In addition, the activities in the book cover a wide variety of topics and use several learning methods to teach these concepts in fun, innovative ways.

I love the sensory bottle idea ! I’d used this idea last year with letters- is useful for sight words too!
