Learning through surroundings

There’s only so many scheduled & constructed activities that you can do for a certain period of time (max 20min usually) that holds a kids attention !!

What I’ve found to be the easiest & most beneficial is using everyday routine to facilitate teaching!

I’ve probably shared it in a previous post, but we’ve taught Miya to count to 10 while walking her up and down the stairs, repetition is the key here !! So whoever, Nanny, Dad, Me, or Pickle leading the way we count going up and coming down! We have 1-10 in the bag now !

I am currently moving from colours and into shapes with her and thought I’d share a few things that have been useful and convenient for me to get the colour recognition going!

The best place (cos of its convenience of course) is the bathroom…I got some Peppa pig bath paint that she plays with daily, as well as this @yookidoo bath toy that’s also helping me work in teaching Shapes too. However my best and double win has got to be @lush bath fizz bombs that change the water colour !!

So if you’re like me and long for the days of soaking in the tub pre-kid … what I do now is get in with her while she’s taking in her colours & she lets me ‘relax’ a bit while she plays… WIN !WIN! #momlifehacks right !!!
