Play-based learning is a core tenet of early childhood education, and it’s well understood that innovators of every age can—and do!—have fun while learning something new. These three activities, presented in collaboration with our friends at Workman Publishing, can help balance distance learning with keeping your kids joyfully engaged.

#1: Say Adieu to Arithmetic Anxiety

Out of all the core subjects, math often gives kids the most anxiety. One way to build kids’ comfort with the subject is to find exciting ways to incorporate math into their everyday routines. Outside of the classroom, kids have a chance to relax and realize that math can actually be really fun.

#2: Encourage Entrepreneurship

#3: Do Something Silly

Next time you make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or a stack of primo pancakes, why not serve it up with a little danger? Try out this fun shark bite paper plate project with your kids, excerpted from Scott Bedford’s Made by Dad.
