In this cold weather it's understandable that parents don't want to ge too far from the warmth and comfort of home, but don't think this means you have to stay inactive. It is important that little ones do keep active because its only when they use their bodies to the limit that they begin to understand what they can do by themselves and how to mange their own bodies. The more practice they get the better they will be, not to mention safer when they are playing and better co-ordinated in general.
There are lots of physical activities you can do at home as long as you clear a bit of space. Here are a few ideas - but do supervise as some of the activites are a bit adventurous!!
Have a safe, fun time!
You might think that ToucanLearn is just another activity site, but what we offer is a unique learning program for preschool children. The program is made up from activities, games and crafts, but each activity is categorised for a very specific moment in the development of your babies and toddlers. As soon as you have registered your children's name and date of birth, you can get access to loads of activities that challenge their capabilities. Each activity is focused on one of four key skills in making, moving, learning and speaking which correspond to fine and gross motor skills, thinking and language development. As your child grows older, so the selection of activities changes so that you will only ever see activities appropriate to the capabilities of each child. The best thing is that you can use all of this for free - if you pay premium membership then you receive even more activities, and some other benefits, but if those don't appeal, you are welcome to use ToucanLearn without paying at all!
In a world full of electronic toys, gadgets and goods, it's easy to give the children something with buttons on that will keep them occupied for hours. There's certainly a place for these in a world of diverse experiences, but at ToucanLearn we offer more traditional activities and pursuits to fill your time. We give you a range of fun games and activities to do with your babies and toddlers that will help them explore and learn about the world, and give you the opportunity to develop with them.
