It’s a BFBN trade day! I am over at Christine Keys with a super easy DIY ornament project that is great for building family traditions with short attention spans. (Think quick and no mess.) I have Valerie from Chronicles of a Babywise Mom with us today. I love doing learning activities with my kids, but it can be hard to find time for them! She has some great tips for us!
Learning time with children can sound overwhelming, but it can really be quite easy and simple. You can easily work time into your day to have some learning activities with you children. The amount of time spent on the activity does not need to be long. Here are some tips for you to work learning time into your day with success.
Learning activities are easier to NOT do than they are to do. They take time and effort. For me,
whenever I avoid the learning activity, I look back regretfully on that time I could have spent. I have never regretted that time I have spent with my children doing the activity. It doesn’t have to take a long time. It can be a 10 minute thing. As your children do activities more, they will be able to do them more independently. While my children work on something, I am able to do little things here and there in the kitchen (where we do activities). The learning time does not need to take over your life, but it can be a part of your life. Have it be a part of your routine just as lunch or dinner is.
