Often times some of us may need to bring our children with to laundromat. How do we keep them busy without running around? Well, Math, I tell ya!
Of course we have many quarters to put in the machines. I had my children figure out how many quarters would be need for each machine. Then I had them put them into groups according to the cost for the washers and dryers.
Now this is my son that doesn't like to Math, and he use to run when I even said the word Math. I'm dead serious, but now that I've done this and lot of other ideas that are more hands on. He doesn't realize he's doing Math. Now, I'm able to do book work with him and motivate him with an activity after he completes his assignment, win/win for both of us!
