While we are practicing social distancing, now is a great time to find different ways to stay connected. Help your child write a letter or draw a picture for family or friends who you can't see in person right now. Then work together to address the envelope, put on the stamp, and put the letter in the mailbox!
set the table
A lot more families are eating at home now, so use this as a time to teach your child to properly set a table for a meal. (THank you to CollageMama for the template!)
Learn to Tie Knots
Knot-tying, according to Scouting magazine, "promotes discipline and focus, and it teaches useful skills that can be used immediately." Use this link for instructional videos on many different types of knots and their uses!
Basic Household Chores
Teaching your children basic household chores early on prepares them to contribute to the home in a real way and take ownership of the responsibility! It may not look just like you did it, but practice makes perfect! Start small with these ideas:
making their bed
folding and putting away laundry
putting away non-breakable dishes in low cabinets/drawers
Most of us have more varieties of plants in our own backyard than we even realize! Take this time to learn what's growing around you! Use this Free Printable to help identify trees based on their leaves! (Thank you, Wildflower Ramblings!)
