This is just a little activity that is not exclusive to homeschooling but any mum can do with their little people…
The center that I’ve been focusing on now that I have our homeschooling room up and running ( I must say day one was a dream) is the poster centers. My kids love anything interactive. So here is how it works.
Purchase 2 of a variety of posters from cheap shops, education stores even our post office has a large range. Where ever you come across them. Now buying 2 is the key.
Strategically place Velcro dots, which are also available at your local cheap shop, onto the poster in appropriate spots so as not to hinder the actual picture as much as possible. Then place corresponding Velcro dots onto the ‘cut’ poster pieces.
Now where to put it? I use an artist easel and sketch board because that’s what I had and it’s easy to fold up and put away in the cupboard.Also we can take the sketch board outside as you can see in the first picture. Lucy wanted to work on the veranda in the warm sunshine. You could bluetac (not sure what the universal word is for that)it to the wall each time you want to use the poster center or a child’s painting easel would do. Really it’s what ever works best for you also taking into account the size of the poster.
You provide the kids with the cutouts and they match them to the corresponding part of the poster. I staple a Ziploc bag to the back of the poster to store all the ‘parts’ in ready for the next time.
