I was never a math genius. Growing up math was the subject I struggled with most, and because of that I was extra diligent in helping my son learn math at an early age. Teaching him through play seemed to work best, and most of the time he was having so much fun that he didn’t realize he was learning. I love it when learning is a fun experience, and that’s one of the reasons I am excited about Zorbit’s Math Adventure Contest and was happy to help when asked to help promote their new contest. Zorbits Math is all about spreading the word on the importance of early childhood learning and making it fun for young children!
Right now, Zorbit’s Math Adventure is having a contest in which they are in search of creative way parents can help children who are between 3 and 5 years old learn any of the following math skills:

Just by sharing your learning idea, you will be entered to win a $100 gift card. Three (3) winners will be chosen at random. You can also win one of three big prizes including $200 gift card, iPad mini and an iPad for the top winners if your idea gets the most votes from readers. Go here to share your idea, in 100 words or less. Photos and other images can be added to illustrate your tip.
They are looking for inventive concepts, handmade tools, use of objects around the home like scarves, different objects kids can count (maybe like helping Mom set the table).
Zorbits Math Adventure allows kids to absorb the knowledge and skills they need in preparation for Kindergarten math – and in a fun way. You can learn more about them by visiting them on Twitter, Pinterest, and Facebook.
The deadline for entering the Zorbit Home Learning Ideas Contest is Monday, July 29, 2013.
