Birth to Six
Just add water
Cover Art My daughter recently received her first Lego set as a gift, complete with directions that were a little advanced for her. However, she was so excited, we worked our way through them, and by the end she was understanding how things worked. Imagine my surprise when I found that IKEA directions and Lego directions are very similar. So she's now built her first bed frame (with a little help). While there aren't any words, there are sequential and spatial skills that may be developed.

Carry that into the kitchen where we enjoy cooking together. Recipes (another form of directions) are also great for building reading and logic skills. And what about those directions I printed offline to find my way to a play date? All around me I'm finding opportunities to learn and explore together.
