Valentine's Day Shadow Matching Cards

Tomorrow is Valentine's Day already! I can't believe how quickly this year is already going by! In my home, we don't actually celebrate Valentine's Day (sshhh!). My husband and I have our dating anniversary exactly one week later so we never got into the habit of acknowledging Valentine's Day, but prefer to make a 'big deal' out of our anniversary.

However, I still like to make learning activities or games for Y because, as you may have noticed, I just love a good theme! I like to take this time of month to provide activities focused on love, relationships, and I just can't help but to add something cute and fun! 

Today, I'm sharing a last minute Valentine's Day themed printable featuring cute kids, candy, and hearts! It's really adorable and you can download it for free below!

Free hands on letter K printables

Welcome back to today's letter k printables post as part of the Letter of the Week post series that Amruta from Mumma Diaries  and I are sharing! 

As I mentioned in the Letter K book recommendations, today's printables pack is formatted slightly differently than the printables I have shared before now. This week, we did a lot of hands on work rather than working with printables. Y really enjoyed the new works and set up, and I hope your little ones will, as well! Scroll down below to download your own free letter K printables in English or Russian

Be sure to visit Mumma Diaries to checkout the beautiful and fun letter K activities Amruta shared today!

Free size sorting printable for young toddlers

I've been getting requests from some of you guys to specify what age certain activities target. Today, I want to share a fun sorting activity printable your little ones! This is a wonderful pre-math activity that you can introduce to younger toddlers.

Why sorting activities

Before working on number quantity, number symbols, and more complicated math skills, my son and I frequently worked on sorting activities. 

Sorting activities teach little ones that each object (type of object) belongs to a group. Sorting objects into distinct groups also requires using logical thinking. This is a very important skill that our kids are working on developing. 

Additionally, from around ages 2 to 4, kids have a sensitive period for order. Sorting activities can be a sort of exercise in order by grouping similar objects together.
