“We’re all stories, in the end.”

Practice makes us perfect. Children need to practise basic mathematical skills such as counting and estimation to get better in that topic. However, getting them to practise math during the summer holidays can be quite challenging for parents. That is why, finding new and fun ways of practising these skills becomes critical.
Today, we will talk about an exciting way to practise basic early mathematical skills through an imaginary culinary game. Intrigued much?
Requirements: Oodles of imagination!
Instructions For Parents:
The Lemonade Activity Sample Script:
Here is a sample script for the lemonade game. You can add different mathematical concepts in this, such as counting, directions, and estimation, depending on the age and developmental level of the child.
Most young children love this imaginary cooking game. Parents can encourage their children to make different things every day such as chocolate cake, banana bread, jalebi, ice cream, or any other favourite dishes. It fosters creativity and fuels their imagination. Parents should also include different mathematical concepts to practice throughout the activity. Ask the child to hop, jump, or skip just to add some fun element.
