We used the book Mouse Paint for our special Letter M theme and Ladybug loved it!  Here’s her special Mouse Paint shelf…

Mouse Paint -7987

She went straight for the counting game in the mini pocket chart, which we played several times after this also!

Mouse Paint -8004

 

We read the book MANY times, and enjoyed using special props as we told the story.  I put a tiny cat and mouse in a basket on the shelf and she played with these so much!

Mouse Paint -8000

We used our rainbow blocks to be the “paint”

Mouse Paint -8078

We also pulled down the printable colored mice to use…

Mouse Paint -8081

 

We worked on our Mouse Paint Pocket Chart Printables, but she wasn’t nearly as impressed as I was.

We colored the Mouse Paint Colors book together…

The highlight was making egg carton mice!

Mouse Paint -8012

Our purple mix was a big fat failure, so I cheated and got the purple paint from the cabinet.

Mouse Paint -8021

Mouse Paint -8059

Mouse Paint -8068

 

She didn’t want to use Qtips on the color word printables I made for her, so we used glue and glitter!

Mouse Paint -8276

She loved using stickers on the dot fun sheet

We also used stickers for the graphing activity!

We used these sheets as a final review of color mixing!  I got the first one here,

Play with Numbers Printable Pack

Kneebouncers

I honestly wasn’t sure what Ladybug would think of the app.  We have a LOT of apps, and she is super picky nowadays.  She really enjoys her “school” apps, I just wasn’t sure if this one would make the cut for her.  Immediately she recognized the design, as we have the KneeBouncers Volume 1 {we bought it years ago}.  She began scrolling through the games and I ended up having to peel her way.  She really enjoyed this app and the educational quality was great.

I was asked to develop an activity that was inspired by the Play with Numbers section in the app, so of course I thought a printable pack would be awesome!

Play with Numbers

Ladybug’s favorite mini game was the Puppy Race, so I made a roll and graph game featuring the puppies!

Kneeboucners Play with Numbers -9105

To say she loved the roll and graph game would be a total understatement.  She saw it in a box on my desk one night {before I had planned to show her} and went nuts and begged to play!  I couldn’t resist so we had a bedtime game of Puppy Racers together!

We play our Roll and Graph games differently each time, you can see other variations here. This night she asked for stickers to mark her graph.

The blue puppy won!

But, she wasn’t done yet, she was having so much fun she asked to fill in the entire graph!

Kneeboucners Play with Numbers -9062  Kneeboucners Play with Numbers -9061

Such a simple and easy to prepare activity, with so many valuable extensions for developing early math skills. Many of these same skills are developed while using the Kneebouncers App also!

I couldn’t stop there, so I also worked with KneeBouncers to develop a number maze, and also some number cards to play various games with!

Here you see her putting the cards in order.  We continued by matching the 2nd set of numbers too!Kneeboucners Play with Numbers -9090

Lots of math talk going on as she made the realization that both 3 and 13 had the number 3 in them, and so on!  It was a big light bulb moment for her!Kneeboucners Play with Numbers -9094

There are 2 sets of 1-20 cards, you can use them to work on matching, numerical order, number ID, or play memory!  There are so many variations with just a simple set of printable numbers with adorable designs kids love!

We didn’t get a chance to work on the number maze yet, it’s a bit more challenging as it contains all numbers and you have to follow the correct order to get through the maze.
