Children also develop personal and social... Continue reading

Absolutely! Try and interchange even earlier mobiles! Children like novelty! The only one ~ black and white ~ might not be as much of an interestsince they see full color already. Xoxo
How fascinating it is to see the world of the unseen! Who would not be interested in seeing the whole new dimension unfold in something perceived so obvious and at the same time conspicuous? From ancient times, humans wanted to see things far smaller than could be perceived with the... Continue reading

Thank you, and it depends on your child's age and level. For really small ones, just triggering sensory stimulation and exploring the textures is probably enough ~ be it "mud" or water beads. (Always supervise! as it can be choking hazard) With Adrian, my objective was to learn the names of the animals, their behavior, so we role-played in a small world setting. You can vary and adapt to your child's interests.. Hope it helps :)
Today, we are making Halloween slime, which was on my to-do list for a while now, and we are very excited to finally conduct this sensory learning experiment!

Letter hunt today ~ letter R. Although Adrian (4 years old), knows all his letters well now, I am a big believer in practice and repetition. Even if a child knows his/her ABCs, s/he will inevitably forget them in the absence of implementation and application of what the child has... Continue reading
