Do you have a potty training toddler?
If yours is anything like mine, you have to sit with her most of the time, waiting for the potty to come.
Sometimes she can be on the potty for a very long time! If I don’t keep her busy she doesn’t like to sit for very long.
As a mom and preschool teacher, I love to find new ways to teach foundational skills to my kids.
I get especially excited when I find something that can be used to teach many different skills at once.
That is why I love using Play-Doh so much!
As a preschool teacher, I invite my students to participate in sensory play every single day. As a mom, I try to integrate it at home as well. There are many benefits to sensory play and you may be doing it without even knowing it.
Playing in the water, dirt, or even baking or playing with toys in your home can be considered sensory play. Your child relies on his or her senses (touch, taste, smell, sight, and sound) to learn new things.
I don’t know about you and your kids, but we LOVE to play outside.
I love it because it keeps the house from looking like a tornado came through. The kids probably love it for other reasons.
Here are some of our absolute favorite outdoor activities.
