Planning activities can be stressful, takes time and sometimes we get lost in what we can do with tiny humans to keep them entertained. Planned activities will ensure children learn and have fun, while also meeting their development milestones. It really does not have to be that hard.
If you go by this rule you can make up an activity on the spot. Let see how it goes.
PICK A THEME and do as follows:
It happens before the activity and it is something that will spark an interest
2. STEP: PREPARATION
After motivation, actual preparation for activity, where you increase the interest in topic
3. STEP: MAIN ACTIVITY
The main event! 🙂
4. STEP: REFLECTION
After the activity you do a small activity to reflect on what you experienced
So for example if you would like to teach your tiny humans about profession: FIREFIGHTERS (as I have wrote before on my Instagram profile) you can go like that:
- playing with toys, watching a youtube video
- going for a walk, noticing things around you (especially in big cities)
- going to the local fire station, having a tour around
- after the trip to fire station, you can paint with water colours what have you seen, experienced
I would always recommend that you do activities that are interesting to your tiny humans (if they have a special interest, like space, you can source activities from that and around that. Like learning colours ~ you can learn in through planets.
If you would like, I can put up a few more examples? Please do let me know in the comments down below what do you think about the activity steps, if they helped you, or how do you plan your activities?
Until next time,
