And it helps so much when you’re around to build that strong bond between you and your child. There’s a whole lot of activities you can engage your toddler in. In this article, we look at the boredom buster activities that will help your child develop, both in body and mind. Welcome and let’s walk it through!
It’s quite good in case your child gets to read in the early stage of development. And there’s no better way to do that than getting a couple of toddler books and teach them how to read. Well, it can be quite tricky at first. And that’s why you need to make it more of a daily routine doing it at least 30 minutes a day. To help boost your child’s reading ability, it’s recommended that the wordings go hand in hand with pictures. You can achieve this by using pinup pictures that correspond to the specific wordings or names. This will help create a visual impression, something that’s quite hard to forget.
Choose to jog your toddler’s memory a little bit. You can do this by opting for the shell memory game. In this game, you collect a number of shells and turn them into a fun game. This kind of game is specially meant to jog your kid’s mathematical memory. Therefore if you want to cultivate a mathematician in your kid, the shell memory game is the way to go.
Your kid needs to learn how to stay organized or rather keep things organized. Get to keep certain household items in specific places and label them for easy identification. Turn it into a guess game asking your kid where certain items belong. For instance, ask them where the toys need to be placed or where the shoes need to be stored. Make it a process as it’s a good way of teaching kids about responsibilities.
