4th of July FUN!

Happy Math & Music Monday!

I hope everyone’s Monday is off to a great start!  Can you believe that it’s almost JULY!  How did this happen!?  I think I said it last week, but I’m still feeling the same way… in complete disbelief that it’s almost JULY!  The days seem to be moving slow (at times) and then the months and time super fast.  We thought it would be fun this week to share with you some of the 4th of July activities we have planned this week to get ready for the holiday weekend.  It looks like it’s going to be a fun and busy week.  We hope you will join us.  

Fun Quote

“Play is our brain’s favorite way of learning.” – Diane Ackerman

I love this quote!  I couldn’t agree more.  When you are having fun and learning at the same time we (yes, even adults) are more likely to remember and really learn!  How fun is that!  So that’s what we plan to continue doing this week… Learning through PLAY! 

Ok, let’s get going… This week, to get ready for the 4th of July weekend, we plan to do these three activities!  Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram (links below) so you can see how they turn out.  

Up first… Tie Dye Shirts!!  

We’re excited to give this a try.  We tried to do the bleach tie dye and that didn’t really work.  So, we’re anxious to see if this turns out better.  

Up Second…some Math and Music FUN!

Even though our girls are EIGHT, they still love watching and doing our Math and Music activities.  So, this week we will rewatch the “Starfish” video and see how many places and ways we can make and find STARS! This also leads perfectly into talking about the American flag and the meaning behind the upcoming holiday (the 4th of July)!

Up Third…Mini Fruit Pizza’s!

Ok, so we made the big version of this for a “Cooking with K” and it was SO SO GOOD!  If you haven’t tried this… you are really missing out.  So we thought it would be fun to make it in a mini version this time and share with family (while social distancing).

As you can see it’s going to be a super fun week! As always, we would love to hear from you on how you are celebrating the 4th of July!

Don’t forget we’re offering a FREE 14-day trial to Ally Dog Depot, so you can go check it out!  IT WON’T LAST MUCH LONGER!  If you’re already a paying member, don’t worry, we’re honoring your original price you paid, so you will have no change until your first year is complete. 

Don’t worry…we do have some additional SUPER Fun things planned this week! Be sure to follow us this week on our Facebook Page and Instagram! You won’t want to miss it. We have a fun NEW Joke on Tuesday for “Tell A Joke Tuesday!” A super fun “Projects with Pais on Wednesday” and a really yummy one on Saturday for “Cooking with K!”  PLUS lots more in between! 

Thanks for stopping by!

We hope you all have a wonderful Math and Music Monday or even a wonderful Math and Music WEEK!

Don’t forget to check out our Math and Music Videos to keep the learning going this week! As always, we would love to hear from you on how things are going!
