I want my child to have a good base for his education. I want him to be prepared when he starts school. This is why I work with him using everyday household items.
My toddler is enthralled by our keyboards. We approve because a keyboard has numbers, letters and arrows pointing in four directions. We just cut the cord off for safety purposes, and work with him on his keyboard when he wants to play with our functioning keyboards.
Magazines or Catalogs
We get magazines in the mail as well as free catalogs for clothes and tools and ads for toys. These are perfect to go through with our little one to point out emotions, different types of clothes and sometimes even animals. Sometimes we read the little advert out loud. It reduces the amount we pay on children books, but still gives our son plenty to look at and learn. Then into the recycling bin they go.
Kids are going to play with their food anyway. It may as well be a learning experience. It’s great for teaching Opposites like yummy, yucky, hot, and cold. It’s also great for adjectives like sweet or squishy. I ask my little one about texture taste and if he likes or dislikes it.
