Fibonacci Cleaning

He wouldn't help pick up toys.

But I knew my audience. I created an awesome new game called Fibonacci cleaning! It is simple.

F_n = F_{n-1} + F_{n-2},\!\,
(Fn = number of toys you pick up in each round.)

Round one you pick up 1,
Round 2 you pick up 2,
Round 3 you pick up 3,
Round 4 you pick up 5,
Round 5 you pick up 8, etc.

Thank the gods I came up with this one. He is really bored with counting by multiples and primes....

(Anybody have any other fun ways to count? This won't hold him for long!)

  1. Lol. That's what I told him to think about when he went to bed last night. He said he didn't know what to think about to I told him to do Fibonaccis and if he forgot to start over.
