Breakfast Invitations are where it is at.
Earlier this week we began sharing Breakfast Invitations and how they can add some serenity to your usually chaotic morning. Read more about what they are and how they can calm your mornings here.
I love using Breakfast Invitations to distract, (I mean stimulate) my preschooler so I can have a minute to drink hot tea and wake up. – I am not a morning person, so this is a critical start to my day.
In this post, I will share 3 Breakfast Invitations that offer practice with name recognition. You can continue to see more 10+ Name Games Post here.
BREAKFAST SETUPS DON’T HAVE TO BE COMPLICATED.
Here are 3 quick and easy setups to ease yours into the morning routine.
When I think of what makes a great Breakfast Invitation, I am thinking:
- What do my preschoolers already know?
- Which loose parts do I have to add?
- Do I want my preschoolers to work together or alone?
