It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Not quite with the program

Take one driveway. At one end, draw a square for each tot, all in a row. Do the same at the other end. Between the rows of squares, draw circles in assorted colours.

Ta-dah! A polka-dot driveway! Enough to amuse the neighbours for days and days. Or until the next rain.

Introduce the tots to the polka-dot drive. Explain the idea. You start in a square! And you jump to a circle! Jump! Jump! Jump! Because we loooove to jump. Mary knows this, because they do it — or try to — All.The.Time in the house.

So! A JUMPING GAME!!! WOO-HOO!!!

And this is what they do:
