We’re continuing to rock it out with our tabletop surprises–simple, meaningful, and fun ‘surprises’ on our kitchen table every day.
Whenever Maddy, Owen, and Cora feel inclined to hit the table, they do.
It’s really worked, and I’m thrilled. Some days, obviously, are better than others. But for the most part, the tabletop surprises have been the best summer learning idea for our kids.
Letting them use their brains on their own time. In their own way.
Here’s the skinny. . .
