Timothy learned to walk backwards before he has learned to count backwards. I'm sure you're thinking "yeah... that's pretty normal." Well, yesterday I used his ability to walk backwards to help teach him to count backwards. All I needed was some sidewalk chalk (20 pieces for $1 at the Dollar Tree) and our feet (well and my phone to capture this video).
This was the second time he had done it. He had so much fun that we did it a few times and then he started trying to hop backwards! Remember that learning can happen anytime and doesn't require a lot of expensive materials!
