Brain-Building Activity #7: Find the Perfect Pairing

Brain-Building Activity #7: Find the Perfect Pairing

Turn the chore of a big Sunday night pile of laundry into a matching game! As you’re sorting and folding, have your child hunt for matching socks. Talk about who has big feet (we’re looking at you, Dad!) and who has little feet in your family. Talk about which socks go together and why. Do they have the same color, pattern, or size?

Figuring out how things are the same and how they are different helps your child understand and interpret the world around her. Having a back-and-forth conversation—even about something as silly as socks—helps your little one learn how to be a good communicator!

Meet the Bezos Family Foundation.

The Bezos Family Foundation believes that all children are born with a deep desire and potential to learn—and that education is the best investment we can make today to ensure a better tomorrow (and at KinderCare, we couldn’t agree more). The Vroom program was created to inspire families to turn everyday moments into opportunities for children to learn and grow. Developed with input from neuroscientists, early childhood experts, and parents, Vroom shares the science of early brain development with families because all parents have the potential to create a bright future for their kids.
