The other day I made these flashcards for Beanie. I've been having lots of mommy guilt lately about the amount of TV she's (or we've) been watching and I'm trying to change that. I've been trying to make sure the TV she does watch is more, um, educational. I've been drastically cutting the TV time down in the morning. Same for evenings. During the day we've been trying to do more activities. Now if I could just get Hubby to turn the TV off during the day too. I know he is winding down after work (and after work is 10am) but still!!
Okay, off that tangent. I made these flashcards. Beanie has been counting to ten, although for some reason she almost always skips seven. She has been counting meaningfully (and by meaningfully I mean actually counting objects) up to 3 or 4. That's why I made the circles on the cards (I just traced dimes), because I want to help her understand that three is more than two, four is more than three, etc etc.
I'm not really worried about teaching all this to her, but she does seem to like numbers and counting so I thought it might be a good activity for her to have fun with.
I do want to laminate the cards. I'll probably just cover them with contact paper so she won't rip them, but the job of getting the contact paper on there cleanly and without bubbles will probably be a difficult one for me! Haha. Anyone want to help me out???
