Sometimes in the afternoons I want to reinforce something from our lessons, but don't always want to tell the boys we're going back to the kitchen table for more work. Part of my objective with homeschooling is to make learning fun!
Me: Hey, boys? Who wants to do a color by number picture?
Both boys: *excitedly screaming* Me! Me! Me!
They have no idea this is helping them meet part of their math objectives. ;-)
