Our favourite math manipulatives... not the cuisenaire rods... my Nanna's old jar of buttons. First you sort them, then you count them, then group them...
So many favourites. Nice that they can play with the same buttons that kept me entertained so many years ago. Hours of fun there!!
I gained a new project on the weekend. I posted on freecycle asking for an old wooden dolls house I could do up for Xan's birthday... and someone replied!!! So its top secret, but I suppose I'll be spending time in the shed sanding and painting this enormous old dolls house. The dolls are going to look teeny tiny in it and Xan won't even reach the top rooms, but I don't think she'll mind. I'm imagining lovely things!
