I love all things fall! And nothing else screams fall to me than pumpkin! Pumpkin anything is all I want when this season hits.
So, in as an excuse to make some pumpkin cookies, I decided to make a homeschool lesson out of it!
I had Lili pull up a chair next to me and help me count out eggs and scoops of sugar. She even helped me count sticks of butter. It was fun and very rewarding.
One of the best ways to teach your children to count is to do it in real life settings. I can do all the drills I want, but giving her the opportunity to use her skills is something flash cards won’t do for me.
Want to make our recipe and use it as a lesson of your own? I found this Melt In Your Mouth Pumpkin Cookie Recipe on Pinterest and we gave it a whirl. The icing was amazing, and with 4 sticks of butter, there is lots of counting opportunity for your preschooler.
What are some fun ways you incorporate learning in your home?
