Tomorrow we are having Fox and Sox day. The children are going to wear mismatched socks to school and we will read "Fox and Sox" and then we are going to play a match the pairs of socks game. This is a easy and fun game you can do at home with your kids even if you just have a baby. Go into their sock drawer and grab a few different pairs of socks and separate them. Lay out one half of the socks on the floor give the other pairs to your child and have them try to match the pairs up. Remove the socks after they make a match. You could do just 3 pairs of socks for younger children but older preschoolers should be able to match up to ten pairs of socks easily. Help them by pointing out the similarities like this sock has green stripes does one of your socks have green stripes or can you find the other flowers that match this sock. Some of these words may be new to your child and its an excellent hands on exposure to the new vocabulary. Best of all this game is FREE. Gotta love that. We keep a matching sock basket on our preschool shelf for the children to match as an activity and it cost me nothing as they are all my sons newborn socks.
