Fun and Simple Learning Games to Play with Your Child Every Day
Every couple days on The Gravely Group Head Start Family Facebook page, I like to write small and simple games and activities that parents can play with their preschool-aged children every day to help them learn letters, numbers, colors, shapes, and more. I thought I would share some of those activities on the blog as well. What are some learning activities that you and your child enjoy? Type them in the comments below!
