Affiliate Links The Educator’s Spin On It bloggers, Kim Vij and Amanda Boyarshinov just published a great book for young learners called 100 Fun and Easy Learning Games for Kids. The photographs are gorgeous, the directions clear, and the ideas engaging. 

I love the variety of activities in the different subjects of reading, writing, math, science, art, music and global studies.

One of the many fun activities we’ve done from the book is an addition activity called 25 Squish.
