I Spy With My Little Eye

I Spy on the Farm by Edward GibbsLook for ways to insert play into situations, such as playing I Spy in the car or taking ideas you read about in books and acting them out. It is fun for both of you, and your child will be learning at the same time!

Dancing With Scarves

colorful scarvesThere are so many benefits to dancing to music! Children are learning body awareness, balance, and range of motion. To understand and mimic movements, children need to process visual and auditory cues. Large motor play is great for developing coordination…and it’s super fun! Scarves are a great way to make music and dancing even more fun! Use scarves or other props you have at home to make the music come alive for you and your children!
