Our ordinary is their extraordinary! Everyday tasks are valuable and applicable life experiences for children.
Folding the bath towels, matching the socks, sorting the silverware, stacking the bowls, setting the table, pouring a glass of milk, taking out the trash, spreading peanut butter on a slice of bread are just a few everyday experiences young children can participate to learn valuable life skills and benefit their developing cognitive skills (maturing thought processes).
Children instinctively are curious about the routine tasks they observe us perform. “Me do it” is a typical request of many toddlers. Preschool age children are anxious to “show off” the skills they are developing and well on the way to mastering. Bonus: children are very eager to help!
Turn your ordinary task into extraordinary – just add a little helper!
