While Candace’s degrees prepared her for a career in education, she’s found that the best preparation for parenting is on-the-job training.
Mathematics: Count the leaves on a clover. Older children can use clovers to skip count, add, and even multiply!
Cardboard rolls makegreat four-leaf clovers over at No Time for Flashcards. (We made a similar craft and glued tissue paper behind them to make sun catchers.)
Those versatile cardboard rolls are also perfect for printmaking shamrocks as demonstrated at Pink and Green Mama.
