How you can teach your young child life skills
Image via: Articles Web
Children love to learn about life, not everything has to be counting numbers or learning letters. Obviously adding this to activities is good too. Learning is fun!
What I love about life skills is you can teach your child something you love.
For me it's not baking but for my husband it is! Our children love to help in the kitchen by pouring in already measured cups of ingredients and mixing it together! They will watch the entire process from start to end.
PaintingI am creative, so for me, I love to paint. So painting with my children is lots of fun. We all have our own painting notepads to create our own pieces. While learning about mixing of colours, different techniques and just having fun! View my Get Creative blog here for some ideas.
BusinessMy husband owns a business so my children are learning through observation about customers, pallets, deliveries, nuts and bolts, fixing tools and a wide range of things by just being around my husband at work.
DancingI love to dance! My children love to dance as well and it's great for them. So turn on the volume and get dancing.
It's important for your child to see you active. My husband signed up to baseball and coached our child's teaball team. Both children now love baseball. I started aerial silk lessons and now our children love to copy by hanging on the fitness bars or my oldest even holding the bars, while doing the splits in the air.
There are so many life skills your child can learn, from playing board games and monopoly to gardening and sport. The most important aspect is you are spending quality time with your children doing things you love to do.
