Have lots of boxes from deliveries? If you’re able, a set of cardboard construction tools from MakeDo is a great home learning option. You get a safe cardboard saw, screwdriver, and screws that can help your child turn those boxes into an amazing creation. They’ll build spatial reasoning and design skills along the way! Available from their website or Amazon (very limited supply).

Want to help your little one practice writing their numbers or letters? Take a look at the capital letters chart and number chart below, from the Handwriting Without Tears curriculum.
