Taking care of a child is a full-time job and sometimes it can be overwhelming especially for first-time parents. It’s one thing to spend time with your child but equally important is the fact that you provide them with activities that are stimulating and at the same time educational which is important for their development.
Arts and crafts are activities that you should definitely provide your child; this is because such activities promote creativity, drawing skills as well as knowledge of colour. Another popular children activity that is also every beneficial is the use of play dough, this way they can learn to identify shapes and sizes.
The kitchen is often a play that parents try to keep their children away from but if you be extra cautious, the kitchen is actually an educational place for the child. The obvious lesson you can teach here is how to be safe in the kitchen, but if you are creative enough, you can include the child in the cooking process where they can learn to eat healthily.
Communication skills are an important element in a child’s development and you don’t have to stress yourself out to teach your child how to listen and talk. For example, a simple game such as pointing at a particular object and saying its name where she can learn the names of those objects.
