In summer, your preschooler is full of anticipation, wondering what her first year of Elementary School will be like. Summer is a great time for family adventures in the sun. It's also a great time to work on some of those skills that will serve your child well in year one.
Why not take your child to a strawberry patch? Picking fresh strawberries with your child is a fantastic way to spend quality time together, and incorporate some learning fun into a family adventure. At the strawberry patch, your child can learn a little about plants and life cycles, practise her counting skills and her colors, and work on developing fine motor skills, using the intricate muscles in her hands to pick all those berries. After the picking's done, bring the strawberries home for some more sweet activities!
