Count, Group and Compare with Your Preschooler
Note to parents and caregivers: Your preschooler needs a lot of fresh air and exercise! Taking walks together, playing in the yard, or going to the park are great opportunities to talk to your child. The outdoor world is rich with things to explore and discover.
Don’t forget to count, group and compare!
