Carlito C. Caterpillar's Math House Game Card - Review and Giveaway


I love getting to teach my children. I especially love teaching them when they're young and getting to see the "light bulb" turn on. There are so many fun activities to use with my young ones, where they don't even realize that they're "doing school". The new Carlito C. Caterpillar's MathHouse Game Card set is full of those fun activities, teaching children concepts in quantity, numeration, and operations in just 20 steps. The 2 games in each step are designed to build on the knowledge that the young child already has.

The cards are sturdy, printed on heavy card stock and lacquered to protect against spills, and attached to a ring so that you can easily flip through them. Most of the games are played with common household items, like socks, goldfish crackers, Cheerios, etc. There are also some supplemental materials used in the games that can be found for free on the C3 website. Here is an example of one of the printouts. They're brightly colored and really kept Sassy's interest.

I started these games with Sassy last week, and she is having a great time with them. Step 2 had a game called "Hungry Lion". This was one of her favorite games. We substituted M&M's for the healthy snacks that the cards recommended. (The child would live on M&M's if I let her.) She had to face the plate with more candies. Then she got to eat the candies on that plate. Needless to say, she LOVED this game. (Please ignore her interesting outfit. I'm letting her pick out her own clothes and that always is interesting.)
I can't wait to finish going through the steps with her.
