Making Learning Fun

My daughter Emmie turned 4 in January and starts school in September, I literally cannot believe it! The time has flown by. 

As I did with my eldest daughter Isla, I’ve been helping her to learn some basics at home, prepping her for when she starts. I never put pressure on my children when it comes to academic learning, but as she showed an interest in the alphabet and numbers, I began to help her write the letters of her name. 

I started by writing her name, and allowing her to draw over the lines and then attempting to copy. It took a while for her to get to grips with it all but she found it so much fun!

We were recently kindly gifted a practice name mat from Quirk and Foible for Emmie to learn with, which has proved a massive hit! 

They are a family run company who design wipeable learning mats and flash cards for children to practice on, to encourage fun learning. They come in a range of themes, so we chose the princess theme. 

Emmie was really eager to practice straight away and I was really impressed with how easy they are for children to use. It can be easily wiped clean with a cloth or a wet wipe and used over and over again! 

We received a double sided mat, with her name and a practice line on one side and 0-10 on the other. It is so helpful in teaching her basic pen control. 

Quick and foible is such an amazing small business, who offer a range of activities targeted at difference ages and abilities. Check our their website if you have young children, you certainly won’t be disappointed!
