How you can use what your kids love to help teach them stuff.
My daughter loves Monster Jam trucks. . .she is 2 (almost 3 *sniffle*) & she knows them all by name. She watches them a lot, plays with her hot wheels ones. . .she just loves them all.
Yesterday we were at Hobby Lobby & we were walking by letter stickers...she points to a M & goes "mommy M for MADUSA " (in her Monster Jam voice which is just so funny . . . loud & drawn out lol).
So. . .she has inspired me. I'm going to work on some monster jam worksheets for her today. I'm going to make an ABC Monster Jam alphabet. She'll love it! :) I mean when I think about all we can do with them.. .colors, orders, numbers, patterns. . .i'm excited.
Here she is showing off part of her collection. She's going to flip after her birthday as she's getting more & a HUGE Madusa (her favorite Monster truck)
