Parking Cars & Learning Math

If you have kids at home, especially boys, then there must be little toy cars in your house, either arranged neatly or most likely scattered around. Little A loves his cars and enjoys speeding them around the house. And they pretty much end up in different corners or under the furniture in the house and never back in the toy box.

So, I decided to create a parking lot for him.

I had these plastic trays from the super market, which I thought would make perfect parking lots. So, I covered their base with chart paper and divided the space into small slots. I numbered each slot and put corresponding number stickers on the cars.

I was very thrilled with the result. Now, he not only puts cars back but also recognizes numbers and can match them 🙂
