FUN WITH RULERS

The following little activity is great for children learning measurements and how to use a ruler. It’s also a fun mini art project.Β Follow the photos to learn how πŸ™‚

MATERIALS
To start you will need a piece of paper, pencil, ruler, and markers or pencil crayons.IMG_7653Β 

STEP 1
With your pencil and ruler make two lines that connect; one vertical and one horizontal.IMG_7655Β 

STEP 2
With your pencil, make a small mark every centimetre along the lines you’ve drawn.
You can use your ruler to help πŸ™‚IMG_7656

STEP 3
At each point you’ve marked on the paper begin numbering.
I measured out 17cm. So I should have 17 marks on my paper.
Examples in the following 2 pictures.IMG_7660IMG_7662Β 

STEP 4
Using your ruler, begin drawing a line between the matching numbers.
Example: 1 to 1, 2 to 2, and so on. You should begin to see the pattern.IMG_7663Β 

After connecting all the matching numbers you should end up with something like this.
You can even fill in the spaces with different colours to create a cool effect.IMG_7664

I’ve created a template if you’re out and about and your kids want something to do.

Autumn Theme “Memory” Playing Cards

The game Concentration/Memory was one of my favourites growing up. Nothing better then a good brain teaser. πŸ˜‰ I wanted to be able to share this fun skill testing game with you all. So I made a small deck of Autumn themed playing cards.

All you need to do is save the pdf files below; find some stock card (preferably 100lb) paper to print out the pages on; and cut along the dotted lines to have your very own deck of Memory playing cards.

Here’s a little info about the game for those of you who have yet to play,
or need a quick recap.

Players
1 to 6 players.

Goal
To collect the most pairs of cards.

Setup
Shuffle the cards and lay them on the table,
face down, in a pattern (e.g. 4 cards x 6 cards).

Gameplay
The youngest player goes first. Play then proceeds clockwise.

On each turn, a player turns over two cards (one at a time) and keeps them if they match.
If they successfully match a pair, then that player also gets to take another turn.

When a player turns over two cards that do not match, those cards are turned face down again and it becomes the next player’s turn.

When all the pairs have been found, the player with the most cards wins.

I hope you all enjoy the playing cards!
Wishing you all a very fun and beautiful fall season.

Summer to-do Charts! Easy FREE printables!!!

Every child cheers in victory at the end of the school year and then after about a week or two at home they begin to complain, “I’m boooorrreeed…” Ha ha haaaaaa! So, in response to this complaint I create a summer to-do chart for my kids.Β  Some of the activities listed are chores and some are purely for fun. If my kids complete the chart before the end of summer then they earn a trip to an amusement park.

Although I have seen some pretty beautiful and crafty summer charts out there in the online world I tend to keep mine simple… Years ago I created these charts on my computer which I update (if needed for age appropriateness), print out and pin onto a bulletin board. It is a brilliant solution to “boredom” complaints and gives the kids something to work towards over the summer season.

I also created a sheet of colourful check marks which we cut out and glue onto the chart when a task is completed. I have provided 5 printable PDF’s for you at the end of this post. The ideas and work are all done – you only need to print them off, pin them up, have your child cut out the check marks and then your summer-to-do charts are ready to go! Easy-peasy! πŸ˜‰
