Musings of a Mathematical Mom: a blog filled with ideas for injecting math into your young child's life

I know A. O. Fradkin from when I was an undergrad at Princeton, and she has an awesome blog called Musings of a Mathematical Mom, about her educational adventures with her two daughters (currently ages 3 and 6, I believe) as well as the enrichment math classes she teaches for ages 4 - 10. You'll also find a list of kid-oriented math reads on her website. If you want some ideas for how to inject mathematics into your everyday interactions with your child or plan enrichment activities for them and their friends, this is a great place to look.

I've even used ideas from her blog for the middle school group of Emory Math Circle - for example this post about the game Nim.
