While strolling through the streets of Windy Hollows, Frankie suddenly received a message from an owl. It is very unusual for something like this to happen, even in the land of Windy Hollows, but any time you get a message like this, you know it must be from one green character… Poe. In his letter, Poe asked Frankie for the help of a Jumpee to brew a Charm. However, Poe is always a mysterious frog and will NEVER just tell us what he wants us to do! Instead, he wrote to Frankie with a math challenge for us to solve that you can read below:
It is so nice to see you in Windy Hollows! I know you are a busy dog, but you should hop in here a bit more… Haha, get the joke? Because I’m a frog… Well, I thought it was a good joke. Anyways, I would love if you could help me out! I need a Jumpee to cast a Charm for me, as my frog hands cannot quite hold a wand very well… Do you think they can follow these steps to find the Charm I need created?
Add up my three lucky numbers: 15, 3, and 2.
Divide the sum of your answer in half.
The answer will lead you to the number of different ingredients in the Charm. Next, follow the stony path to the Charm Creator and open up our ancient book of spells. Go through the book and find the Charm that has the matching number.
Now that you have solved Poe’s Puzzle, which Charm did he ask us to create? Collect the ingredients around the Magic Marsh and start brewing this Charm for our Windy Hollows friend. Do not forget to share your hard work with your pals at the JumpStart blog and post a screenshot of you casting this spell!

In addition to getting your child better familiar with the classroom setting and interacting with their peers, preschool and kindergarten are important times to begin developing your kid’s memory skills. These tools are so fundamental to the way our Jumpeez will process information as they group up, we really want to take extra time nurturing our children’s memory abilities at this time.
One of the greatest ways to work on developing your child’s short and long-term memory is by playing different sorts of memory-based activities. Matching games where children have to pair together similar objects provide tons of great benefits to different parts of the memory processes. That is why one of our favorite games in JumpStart is Ladybug Learning. In addition to teaching our younger Jumpeez about numbers and letters, it works on improving their short-term memory and brain functionality. Here are just a couple ways that matching games can strengthen your kid’s ability to digest and recall information:
- Concentration: Successfully completing a matching game not only requires exercising our Jumpeez’ memory, but also their strengthening their concentration skills. It takes our children a lot of effort to go through the objects, process what they mean, and remember them for future pairing attempts.
- Visual memory: Matching games also make our Jumpeez think about visual information. These activities can help them recognize where different objects are located. Such a skill will be a lifesaver when we need to know where our kids put our phone after playing their favorite apps. What a relief!
- Understanding new concepts: Using their budding concentration and memory skills, Jumpeez can use matching games to help them better understand unfamiliar concepts. Just like in Ladybug Learning, you can introduce them to things like numbers and letters. These building blocks of words and math might look scary and difficult to understand, but your Jumpee will get more comfortable with them as they use their memory skills to play the game!
- Organization: An added bonus to all the memory benefits your Jumpee gains from matching games, they will also have stronger organization skills as well. By pairing similar items together, your Jumpee learns how to sort things. After working with your child on a matching game, gather a bunch of their toys and help them sort the objects into certain categories for some extra practice!
Matching games are a great way to improve your child’s memory abilities and, not to mention, they are incredibly entertaining. Your kid will be hooked trying to find the matching ladybugs in this learning game. Guide your growing Jumpee over to our Learning Center in the DownTown area of JumpStart to start playing Ladybug Learning today!
