Learning ideas to go along with the tracing printables ~

  • At the beginning of each new month, trace the name of the month, the year, and color the focus picture.
  • Each new day, trace the number and talk about what day it is.
  • Practice counting each day up to the date.
  • Use 2 or 3 colors to write in each month to create a pattern.
  • At the beginning of each month go through and mark the special days {holidays, birthdays, anniversaries or anything your family celebrates}.  Have your child decorate those special dates so you can look forward to them!

Learning ideas to go along with the dot fun printables ~

Calendar-3016

  • At the beginning of each new month, color the focus picture. If your child doesn’t like to color, color together…make it fun!
  • Each new day, dot paint the day, or use a dot sticker and talk about what day it is.
  • Practice counting each day up to the date.
  • Use 2 or 3 colors to create a pattern.

Don’t have Dot Paint {or don’t want to be messy with little ones}?  Use Dot Stickers instead!

The Three Snow Bears ~ Ivy Kids Kit

Three Snow Bears Ivy Kids Kit

{disclaimer ~ Ivy Kids is a blog sponsor and sent us a kit for this review}

Ivy Kids Kits rock! We have been reviewing kits for a long time now and the boxes never disappoint!

Not familiar with Ivy Kids Kits?

Ivy Kits are a monthly educational subscription for children ages 3-8 developed by early childhood teachers with children of their own. You can tell these kits were developed by people who truly know young kids.  The activities are awesome. Not only can you subscribe to a monthly kit, you can also buy past kits.

Each Ivy Kit contains instructions with ways to modify games to best suit each individual child and provide adults with questions to structure a child’s learning. There are enough games and materials in each kit to engage and cognitively stimulate a child throughout the month and can be replayed for years to come.

We were sent The Three Snow Bears kit for this review!

Ivy Kids-3

This kit includes:

      • The book The Three Snow Bears by Jan Brett, a story about a girl that meets a polar bear family. This books gives readers a glimpse into life in the Arctic.
      • Read along Bookmark: Use to assist with reading comprehension.
      • Plush Polar Bear: This cuddly polar bear is the perfect companion while reading the story. 
      • Build an Igloo: Learn how people in the Arctic use ice blocks to build igloos. Then use "ice blocks" (made from biodegradable corn starch) to build your own igloo. 
      • Clay Polar Bear: Learn fun and interesting facts about polar bears. Then use the white clay to create your own polar bear.
      • All About Polar Bears: Identify the different body parts of a polar bear.
      • Arctic Sea Ice Experiment: Use the bowl provided, water, and your freezer to create an iceberg floating in the Arctic sea. Explore how ice acts in water and how polar bears use the ice.
      • Polar Bear Frame: Select a photo and add it to the frame. Pretend to be one of the bears from the story and use the crayons to draw clothes onto the bear frame.
      • Snowflake Wreath: Use lots of snowflake stickers to create beautiful winter wreath for your home. 
      • Save the Sled Dogs Board Game: Roll the die and move your polar bear on the iceberg path. The first polar bear to reach the sled dogs wins the game.
      • Catch the Seals: Pull-back the polar bear and watch it go. If the polar bear lands on or touches a seal card, the player collects it, identifies the letter(s) on the card and names something that starts with that letter sound. 
      • Roll and Cover Game: Select one of the fours boards provided. Then roll the die,  find the number on the board and cover it with a white pom-pom. Cover all the spaces to win the game.
      • If I lived in the Arctic: Think about what life must be like living in the Arctic. Write your ideas on the space provided on the board. Then use the crayons to color a picture of yourself dressed as though you lived in the Arctic. 
      • The Three Snow Bears Story Retelling: Color and cut out the characters from the story The Three Snow Bears. Then reread the story and use the characters to act out the story.
      • Number Stories: Create your own number stories using the characters from the story The Three Snow Bears. If Papa bear has 3 snowballs and Baby bear has 2 snowballs, how many snowballs do they have altogether?

Some Activities From Our Box…

Her VERY favorite activity from this box was the Arctic Sea science experiment! She loved creating her own iceberg and investigating how polar bears interact with the icebergs. She played with this for so long after the actual lesson and has since frozen water to have some of her other toys go ice skating.

Ivy Kids-10

My mom absolutely loves these kits and they will often do the crafts and messy activities together when she comes over. I love having things specifically for them to do together!

Ivy Kids-2

They studied igloos and made one together. She couldn’t stand the sticky feeling so she asked to wear gloves!

Ivy Kids-4

Another simple but fun craft!

Ivy Kids-8

We used the math activity in the box to work on division word stories instead of addition and subtraction.

Ivy Kids-9

Learned all about polar bears…

Ivy Kids-7

Not everything from this kit is pictured, she enjoyed more of it and is still enjoying some of it! One thing I didn’t grab a photo of that I wish I had was her clay polar bear! She and my mom both made polar bears and they looked like cats, they were hilarious!

You can buy this kit here!

We also loved our A House for Hermit Crab kit, Penguin & Pinecone kit, Gotta Go! Gotta Go! kit, Over in the Ocean, Dog’s Colorful Day, Are You a Ladybug?, and Mrs. McTats and Her Houseful of Cats!
