ballThe kids came up with a simple (and educational!) game yesterday that I thought you might like, too. It goes like this:

They sit on the floor about six feet away from each other, and toss a ball back and forth. (I’m sure I’ve mentioned their genius status before, right?)

While they toss the ball, they sing “Mrs. Pigglewiggy” in a sing-song voice for four tosses. On the fourth toss the kid who has the ball calls out a math problem “9 plus 8 is what?” then tosses the ball. The other kid has to answer before they can toss the ball back again.

This has kept them happily occupied for two days in a row & they love it. My Man B loves it ’cause he gets to show how quick he is at math, and Miss M loves it because it was HER idea.
