Make Eating Healthy Fun with PBS KIDS and Whole Foods Market {Giveaway}



On October 7th, PBS KIDS will air a new series that focuses on preschool math skills. Peg + Cat is such a sweet and fun show that breaks stereotypes with its main character, Peg, a young girl who loves math. So often we focus on literacy skills for preschool children, but frequently forget that pre-math skills are equally important. So this new series helps out parents who are not able or who choose not to enroll their children in preschool, as well as parents who are looking to help supplement their preschooler's education with activities at home. By the time children leave preschool and enter kindergarten, they should be able to identify numbers and do basic counting. Peg + Cat helps them to learn this and more.

One of the best ways to teach early math skills at home is in the kitchen using food and recipes. Whole Foods Market has partnered with PBS KIDS to support healthy eating habits and early math education. What a clever way to engage your kids and teach them essential lifelong skills! You can find a whole bunch of Peg + Cat activities, recipes, and more on the PBS KIDS website.


THE GIVEAWAY

One MommyMaestra reader will win a Peg + Cat prize pack that includes a Peg + Cat book, notepad, activity sheets, and $35 Whole Foods Market gift card.
