Are You The Parent of A Young Child?
Are you and your family sheltering-in-place due to the corona virus? Do you have "cabin fever?" Are you feeling restless, antsy, and in need of some fun activities to do with your young children to pass the time?
Well, you've come to the right place! Here at UniversalPreschool.com we provide FREE play-based learning activities that are fun for the whole family. Why play-based? Because children learn best through play. Think about it. Play teaches kids a lot about their world and the creatures they share it with while developing academic readiness skills and a solid foundation for life-long learning success.
Playing make-believe games fires up imaginations as kids act out dozens of characters and scenarios. Many things that give our kids life skills also provide an introduction to subjects like math and science. For example, you can teach your child to cook which introduces them to measurement and chemistry. Explore nature in your backyard. Plant a garden and learn about soil, flowers, worms, birds, bees and other insects. Look at the stars at night and point out constellations and the phases of the moon.
Build with blocks and boxes to help kids understand form and structure and to develop problem-solving skills. Art projects improve small motor skills through learning to cut, color, and paste.
Don't forget to get messy and make gooey science experiments and mud pies. As you talk about your activities, your child will learn new vocabulary and develop reading readiness skills.
Physical health improves with playful activities like running, jumping, tumbling, climbing, swinging, dancing and more. Encourage brain and cognitive development by answering your child's questions with facts, clarity, and honesty. If you don't know an answer - show your child how to find the answer.
Hold, snuggle, hug, and cuddle your child so that he or she feels loved. Simply live your lives and by virtue of including your child in your everyday learning, work, and play, he or she will acquire knowledge of the world, all of the skills needed for future academic endeavors, and become confident and happy. Here are some playful activities and ideas to get you started:
- Fun with Rainbows - The weather provides all kinds of inspiration for learning.
- Springtime Learning Activities! - Welcome spring with these fun ideas.
- Fun with Dandelions! - Head to the garden or take a walk around your neighborhood to learn with dandelions.
