As many readers know, we plan on homeschooling Miles when he gets old enough. Now that he's almost 3 I've been looking for ways to introduce some preschool activities into his learning, mostly through play. When I was selected from the Leap Frog party, I thought this was a perfect opportunity to get started on fun, learning games. And I was right! By the way, I do still have a few coupons available from the party. They are for $5 off any Leap Frog Touch Magic Toy (the guitar, the bus, or a counting train, which we didn't receive, but I saw it in Target and it looks fun!) Please send me a little note via email or comment below if you would like me to slip one in the mail for you. I have just a few, so please be quick!
Miles already knows his letters, but the Learning Bus made reviewing the letters fun. We've been working on the sounds that the letters make, and really enjoyed pressing the letters, and playing the keyboard that's on the bus. In addition, he liked pushing it around up on it's wheels. :) A little unconventional for a flat object, but fun nonetheless.
We also received two Rockin' Guitars. Most of the kids were too young to understand the games between the two guitars, but enjoyed finding the songs that they recognized and playing along with them. Miles in particular loved Itsy Bitsy Spider.
Here is Miles when we first introduced the guitar.
