I decided I didn't want to use the calendar math numbers that come out of our Everyday Counts kit, so I made cute monster cards. I love these cards because we can use them to discuss different patterns (purple/orange/green, girl/boy/boy, 1 eye/2 eyes/3 eyes). OCTOBER
My daughter would probably do this. We all play Diablo 3 and one gaming session we come across a menagerist goblin, which of course = pet. My little girl, 6, got Galthrak the Unhinged, who is basically just a a razor sharp teeth lined set of jaws on four legs. Her reaction? "He's so cute" :-D always a moment of pride and joy when she so firmly reminds me she's a gamer.
