Hey moms, do any of you know any fun simple ways to introduce science and math to toddlers at an early age? My toddler is 2 and I want to get him introduced to science and math at an early age.

not fully sure what you mean.

As far as math, i can think of a few examples. In our house we have about a bajillion rubber ducks (really a bajillion) So at bath time we throw some in. on the edge of the tub we count them out. I push in 2 and say opps two fell in, how many are there now.( if you ask her what 7 minus 2 is she can't tell you) You can also teach them to make categories out of things. (yes this is a math skill) For example, take a bag of plastic silverware for parties. They can separate into piles of spoons, forks, and knives. Or by color, or if you can find smaller ones, by size.

Science to me is more of just everyday stuff. Use a ball to explain why it falls is gravity. Get some snow and bring it in and show it's melting and explain why. take walks together and talk about nature related things like types of trees. types of birds. if nothing else, science centers are fun for toddlers and they are educational.
