Lately I have been trying to find good homeschooling ideas that would involve my one and three year old. I hate having to have so much stuff for each of them. The one big problem with that is they are at very different educational levels and that is how I came up with the ABC monster. It takes the same items but how they play with it makes it different for there levels. The great part is they both can play at the same time! Normally my one year old is screaming for attention while I try to teach my three year old. My three year old had so much fun decorating our monster before we were able to play.
