Here are some big, but easy, tips to encourage learning and STEM exploration with your children.
1. Encourage Kids To Ask Why
Yes, the toddler ‘Why?’ phase can be hard. But asking why is where learning happens. Be willing to wonder. Good STEM activities for toddlers and preschoolers encourage why.
2. Hands On Exploration Matters
Getting to do things matters. Sensory activities matter. Kids learn best when they try things. You don’t need to be able to explain everything, toddler and preschool STEM activities are about the experience.
3. Don’t Be Afraid To Say, ‘I Don’t Know’
It can be hard to admit when we don’t know something. But science, especially STEM for preschoolers and toddlers, is about not knowing. Show your kids how to seek out what you don’t know.
4. Play is the Best Learning Activity
STEM for toddlers and preschoolers should be fun. Kids learn best when they are playing. So set up an activity and let your kids explore. If they are having fun, they are learning.

1. Have a Consistent Daily Wake Time
Want to learn how to get your twins on a schedule? Have a consistent daily wake time. You can start this with your newborn twins or even toddler twins to help a schedule naturally form.
2. Feed Your Twins At the Same time (Tandem Feed If You Can)
Feed your twins at the same time to keep them on the same schedule. Tandem breastfeeding makes that easier, but even feeding your baby twins one right after the other will help.
3. Use a Dream Feed To Maximize Your Sleep
The dream feed is a great way to maximize your sleep as a twin mom. It pushes back night time feedings and helps line up the long period of infant sleep with your sleep.

Twin parents know they have two unique children, even if they have identical twins. But it can be hard to find time to foster individuality in twins. It really only takes a few minutes each day to focus on your twins one at a time and touch their hearts.
5. Remember Your Strength
Everything twins, from twin pregnancy to baby twins to toddler twins, can feel so overwhelming. But remember you can do this. Twin moms are made strong. You can do this.
