3 games to learn about animals

To toddlers and preschoolers, animals are endlessly fascinating, mostly because they seem just as silly, noisy, and cute as little kids. They’re even easy and fun to imitate — one reason most toddlers can moo soon after they say “Mama.” Lots of tots are eager to learn about their furry or feathered friends (especially if you already have a pet), so try a few of these animal activities to boost your child’s knowledge of the natural world.

Eat like an animal.

Turn snack time into a lesson on what animals eat by filling a muffin tin with animal-friendly snacks: berries for bears, pumpkin seeds for birds, sliced bananas for monkeys, or baby carrots for rabbits. As your munchkin munches, have him try to guess which animals prefer each food — he can even match the treat to a lineup of pictures you’ve printed out. (Add a few sneaky snacks, like mini marshmallows — your little one will think it’s hilarious that they’re a favorite of those junk-food fiends, raccoons.)

Build your own zoo.

Most kids have a menagerie of stuffed animals, so why not give these furry friends a home? Brainstorm the perfect habitat, like a mixing bowl of (imaginary) water for his stuffed seal or cut out some brown construction paper to create a mud puddle for his plush pig. Group animals from similar places: sea creatures in one corner, barnyard critters in another. When you’ve finished your DIY zoo, take the grand tour together.

Do a dance.

Your munchkin probably loves to get her groove on, so the next time you turn on the tunes to dance, transform the party into an animal activity. Take turns calling out different creatures to imitate. The two of you can waddle like a penguin, prance like a deer, lumber like a bear, or slither like a snake. To boost more large-motor skills, see if your tot can balance on one leg like a flamingo, tiptoe like a giraffe, or climb up the couch like a chimpanzee.

3 easy recipes for kids

Cooking is a great learning experience. It promotes reading and following directions. It requires math skills, such as measuring and following a sequence. Fine motor skills are strengthened through pouring, scooping, cutting, and kneading.

It provides an opportunity to discuss where food comes from and healthy eating habits. Most children are more likely to try foods that they help prepare themselves. Getting children involved in meal preparation is a great way to expand their tastes.

Here are some healthy, easy, and yummy recipes even the smallest chefs can help prepare.

Waffle-wiches

Start with either homemade or frozen waffles. Cut a waffle in half, fill with favorite sandwich fixings and then put the other half on top. Give children choices for fillings and allow them to help assemble their own sandwich. These are great for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! You can also try it with pancakes.

Smoothies

Encourage children to create their own recipes from a variety of fresh or frozen fruit. Throw it in a blender with milk or juice and blend into a frosty treat. Children love pressing the buttons on the blender. Add yogurt or peanut butter to increase the protein.

Stick It!

Set out a variety of food cut into bite-sized chunks. Options may include bread, cheese, leftover chicken, pineapple, green peppers, cherry tomatoes or whatever else you have on hand. Older children can handle wooden skewers, but drinking straws work great for the younger set. Children create their own balanced meal by sticking the chucks on their stick. Provide ranch dressing, honey mustard, or ketchup for dipping, if desired.

In addition to building great skills and healthy habits, cooking with kids also creates great memories!

Developing social skills in your kids

All the humanity is based on society. Adults certainly know how important it is to stay connected to their colleagues and peers if they are to have successful lives, but did you know that the number and strength of our social connections are also very important for happiness?

Stay Connected!

The quantity and quality of a person’s social connections—friendships, relationships with family members, closeness to neighbors, etc.—is so closely related to well-being and personal happiness the two can practically be equated. People with many friendships are less likely to experience sadness, loneliness, low self-esteem, and problems with eating and sleeping.

As a parent, it is important to think about how we spend our time: if our happiness is best predicted by the quantity and quality of our relationships with others, how can we foster lots of strong relationships between our family and our communities. And yet more importantedly, how do we engage our kids in social activities to ensure their happiness.

Fostering strong relationships

When it comes to fostering social connections in kids, three arenas are imperative for discussion and development:

1. Family relationship: Where it all starts– establishing secure parent-child attachments has a great impact on emotional security that leads to social intelligence. Social and emotional intelligence is critical for forming strong relationships.

Family Bonds

2. Social virtues: As kids get older, having the skills to negotiate and maintain relationships becomes important. Having the skills to make or break a relationship are sharing, forgiveness, adjustment, and a clear communication. People who consciously practice expressing gratitude and appreciation have stronger relationships.

Social virtues

3. Altruism: Being kind to others, even strangers—does not only create deep and positive relationships, it also enhances the development of mental-emotional-spiritual faculties of your beloved child.

Altruism
