Math Made Fun with Manipulatives Series

So excited to share the Math Made Fun with Manipulatives series I am hosting with 21 other creative bloggers beginning June 1st!!

My goal for this series is to make it known that math can be and IS FUN!!  Math doesn't need to be drill and kill through workbooks or expensive toys and now with summer break approaching for many school children, this is the perfect time to reinforce math skills in a fun, hands-on way.  So many math concepts can easily be taught with everyday manipulatives you have in your craft stash, kitchen, toy bins, etc!!

I am so excited to have 21 other bloggers around the web as enthusiastic about math as I am!!  Be sure to pin, bookmark,... whatever you need to do to save this page as a resource for many awesome math activities to do with your child using everyday common items.  I encourage you to check back throughout the month of June to see how each manipulative was used in a math centered activity.

Here's a look at the manipulatives being showcased this month!

D is for Dog Alphabet Craft

We have another fun alphabet craft to share with you today!  I look forward to sharing the rest of our alphabet crafts with you-- my daughter has been having a lot of fun!  Today's alphabet craft is D is for Dog.  Can you tell what kind of dog our craft was inspired by? ..... 
The Dalmatian!!

To set up our D is for Dog alphabet craft, you'll need to gather some cotton pads, black construction paper, black paint, pipette, and googly eyes.

Begin by squirting a little bit of black paint into a bowl and watering it down with water.  Set up several cotton pads on a tray.
Encourage your little one to squeeze the pipette into the watered down black paint and squirt it on the cotton pads to create black spots.
While your child is busy squirting black paint onto the cotton pads, cut ears and a tail from the black construction paper.
Once Little Sis was done, we continued on with our alphabet craft even though the cotton pads were still wet.  On a white sheet of paper, we made a 'D' shape with glue and then Little Sis added cotton pads to the glue.  Then we added ears, a tail, and googly eyes.
Keep in touch so you don't miss our other alphabet crafts we share in the future!  Until then, check out:
