To build math and science skills, do the laundry

Posted on

Doing laundry with your child is a great chance to help him put his math and science skills into action. To practice observation, for example, ask your child, “Does this shirt feel different from that one? Why could that be?” Sorting clothes by color or family member helps him learn to classify. You can also help him quantify by asking things like, “Who has the shortest socks in the family? By how many inches?”
