Home Detective

Pera Kids
Ages 4-6

Today, we are going to discover our homes. Are you ready? Take a marker pen and draw a figure or pattern of your choosing on your palm or a piece of paper. Now, it is time to find an object around the house that most closely resembles this drawing. Or, in other words, it is time for an investigation! Search the house and check every room. Once you find something, make sure to take a picture and share it on social media with the hashtag #PeraLearning
