Children’s tools – the dream of a little DIY enthusiast

We all know that children are fascinated by the world of adults – they love to play at home, imitate their parents and accompany them while making or repairing something. A screwdriver or a drill are the most interesting thing in the world for a little toddler. DIY itself is fantastic fun for kids and having a toy workshops and tools is a dream of every little boy.   Children’s tools are a great way to have fun and develop many valuable skills. They exercise hand movements, and also teach precision, accuracy and patience. With tools children can build and fix things in their little imaginational world. This educational toys are an inspiring challenge to the child’s mind. They encourage thought, planning and solving a problem. Skillfully matched to the age, they focus the child’s energy on themselves and constitute an object of joint play with other children or parents. In preschool age, this way of...

OUTDOOR PLAY

Key pointers Outdoor play is good for your child’s physical health, development and self-confidence. It’s also great fun! Encourage your child to play outside several times a day! Outdoor play ideas include tummy time, ball play, nature walks, bike rides and more Why outdoor play is important Playing outside gives your child the chance to explore the natural environment and have adventures. Your child can play games, test their physical limits, express themselves and build their self-confidence. Outdoor play can also mean more mess – and more mess often means more fun! When your child is outside, your child probably has more space and freedom for big movements like running, jumping, kicking and throwing. Physical activities like these are good for your child’s health, fitness and physical development. Spending time outdoors might lower your child’s chances of developing short-sightedness.

MODELLING GRACOUSNESS FOR YOUR CHILDREN

MODELLING GRACOUSNESS FOR YOUR CHILDREN

  There’s a parenting question that comes up perhaps more frequently than any other. We seem to be able to wrap our heads around how to respectfully set limits, offer choices, acknowledge their feelings, understand the differences between natural and logical consequences, even calmly support them through tantrums. But when push comes to shove, there is one thing that stumps us: “What do I do when they simply refuse to do what I am asking them to do?” I would reword the question, actually.  Don’t get me wrong, I hear you.  You’re asking what to do when your kids refuse to pick up their toys, put their clothes on, brush their teeth, clean up a mess they made.  I know.  i would still reword it.  I hear the words that you are asking.  And after they go through the filter that is oh-so-handily inside my ears, the question looks a lot more like:...

MAKING THE TODDLER YEARS TERRIFIC - 5 TOP TIPS

Toddlers are fascinating little beings. They can go from laughing to crying in a split second, and so can their parents. The technical definition of a toddler is a child between the ages of 1 and 3, though some would consider this stage to extend to age 4. Toddlers’ brains develop at a rapid pace. Within a couple of years, most toddlers learn to walk, run, jump, ride a tricycle, climb and, yes, fall. They learn to talk, make associations, build, hold a crayon, feed themselves, play with toys, listen to stories and use their imaginations. The toddler stage is filled with fun and new experiences, but it can also be challenging for children and their parents as the little ones learn to communicate their wants and needs. Toddlers are really just trying to figure out: Am I a baby or a big kid? They go back and forth between...

Want Need Wear Read: A holiday gift strategy to avoid an overwhelmed melt down on Christmas day

  Queue the soundtrack of overwhelmed kids crying hysterically! The over excitement built up to the meltdown we all know oh too well! Cue up relatives loudly giving their opinions about how we should handle it. That’s what Most family homes look like on this special holiday right ?  We love what Amanda Morin had to say:  "My boys, 5 and 13, have learning and thinking differences. The younger one can be impulsive and excitable. The older one can get anxious and has a hard time with social situations. Each holiday season, the boys faced an unorganized mountain of presents from us and from extended family. They had no idea what they were getting. They would literally shake with anticipation! When it was time to open gifts, each boy would claw and grab, trying to get whatever was his. Taking turns? Forget it. Then there was the disappointment. My kids often have very specific ideas of what...
