I just found your blog through Elizabeth Foss's blog. I love the Peter Rabbit math ideas!! I have a couple of questions if you don't mind. Are the little animals finger puppets and are you making up your own story? I did the math gnomes with my 9 yo (then 7 1/2) but when my 3 yo is ready, I would love to do something more like this. We already have the Doug and Melissa tree house that I found at Goodwill. Thanks for the inspiration!
