Math Game with Holiday Toy Guides

Our mailboxes and newspapers  have started to fill up with the toy guides for the holidays.  I must admit I do allow my children to take a peek at them and see what's out there. I'm always curious to see what sparks their interest in the toy guides.   Here's a fun way to make it about math too and not just the gifts.

Turning 5 is a special year.  Many children start school, begin reading, are playing sports, and have strong interests.  As a former kindergarten teacher with a 5 year old myself, I have tons of experience picking the best toys for this age group.  Here is the list of my top 5 year old gift ideas.
