7 Toddler Activities For Homeschooling


 


7 Toddler Activities For Homeschooling



Day 1 Activity: Speaking in Mic

 

In this epidemic time where kids cannot socialize. But it’s important to engage them with such activities that enhance their personality. Public Speaking is one of them. Thanks to the digital technology that is spreading so fast. There are an infinite number of classes happening every day on various platforms. It is rightly said that the physical sessions are closed, but not the learning. Being parents, it becomes our responsibility to take out the time from our busy schedules and focus on our kids.

 

How to do it:

 Plan the speech for 2 minutes

Write a few lines in bold on a paper and asking your toddler to speak it out or just repeating after you, e.g.: 

1.   My name is XYZ.

2.   I am 3 years old

3.   I am a boy/girl

4.   My father’s name is Mr. ABC

5.   My mother’s name is Mrs. Abcd

 

By 3 years, kids start forming sentences and they understand the alphabet as well. This will help them recognize words, letters, and numbers. Hence, you can make an environment in which kids should feel comfortable while speaking. You should encourage them with such words like come on, keep it up or yes! You’re right. It’ll boost their self-confidence slowly and steadily. They’ll not feel hesitant to try out this activity again. This activity will help them, ‌like speech clarity, language development, facing the stage, facing the audience, etc.




Day 2 Activity: Dancing Activity

 

Dance is another form of art that we bless a few with. But we parent can always engage our kids a little in dancing activities. It improves flexibility, balance, stamina, muscle tone, posture, etc. There are a few songs like “the wheels on the bus go”, “Daddy finger, daddy’s finger, where are you?” and “Head, shoulder, knees, and toes, etc.” These rhymes will help the toddler ‌understand well by doing activities with them. I enjoy the moment more when I dance a little and my 3 years toddler copies all my dance steps. Hence, it builds up the bond between us.



Day 3 Activity: Tracing/Writing

 

Another important activity you can enroll your toddler in is introducing how to trace. We should introduce the kids to pencils once he/she is 3 years old. But before that, you can introduce them to crayons, chalks, finger painting, sketch pens, etc. to make the grip stronger. You can involve them more in such activities to improve fine motor skills. Slowly, give them a pencil and instruct them on how to make standing and sleeping lines, etc.




Day 4 Activity:Pop-It Toy

 

 I was wondering what this little toy can do. But it made me shocked when I bought it for my little one and she explored it more than I like how to use it. She could figure out how to use the pop-it toy. She did many activities by using this like counting, pop-in, and pop-out, remembering the colors, etc. This comes almost in all shapes and sizes and is easy to carry anywhere. This improves eyesight, color recognition, fine motor skills, imagination skills, sensory skills, cognitive skills, and many more. Kids don’t get bored with it easily.



Day 5 Activity: Magnetic Tiles 

 

If you’re looking for something to engage your toddler for long hours, then this is the perfect gift. The tiles have magnets in them and are available in many shapes, sizes, and colors. It helps the kids to improve their imagination skills, learn how to balance, color recognition, and improve find-motor skills, etc. Kids can build a tower with it or can make cubes. There are an unlimited number of options available on the tiles to choose from depending on the age and the skill of the kid. You can check out here for more options. Believe me! They were a little expensive but they’re worth buying it.



Day 6 Activity: Colouring Activity

 

It is a type of skill that helps kids to improve their creativity and concentration. The world is full of colors, but only a few can see that depending on how they perceive it. Do you agree? If yes! Give more colors to your kid to make the combination with. Give them the wall, the paper, or the canvas to draw/paint and create the mess. I am sure they’ll thank you later for this. An unlimited number of coloring tools are available. 



Day 7 Activity: Art & Craft 

 

This is another type of skill to improve imagination and creativity. Art and craft is a broad term and many options are available to choose from. Here’re a few suggestions on how to start a little with your toddler.

7.1 Cutting with the help of a Scissor: kids' friendly scissors are available too.

 7.2 Pom Pom: lots of creativity can be done. Just give it to your kid and see the magic. They’re available in different colors. 

7.3 Popsicle sticks: Another mostly used product that improves visualization and imagination. We can make a lot of things, like a house, blocks, cubes, etc. 

7.4 Glue, Double-sided tape: kids love cut-and-paste activities. it Improves sensory skills depending on the age and interest of the kid. You can always start by taking out the printout from the internet and guiding your kid on how to do it.

  I would love to know how do you keep your kids engaged. Kindly share your experiences in the comment box below.

5 Must-have Earthen Products This Summer

  5 Must-have Earthen Products This Summer





 

“Don’t Miss these 5 Must-have Earthen Products This Summer And Here are The Reasons‌”

 

Earthen products used to be the most common product form of healthy cooking. But several cookware materials exist in the market like non-stick, stainless steel, aluminum, copper, enameled cast iron, glass, ceramic, and silicone that have made us forget about earthen products. I remember when my grandmother used to tell me how they used to cook in earthen pots and found it much healthy than what we cook today.

 

So, I am here with a few options available that will be for the betterment of our health. 

Choosing the type of cookware is one’s choice, but we should add something to our daily life that could benefit us to stay healthy.

 

Why one should use Earthen products?

 

  • Affordable price
  • Eco-friendly products
  • No harmful chemicals used
  • Available in trendy styles 
  • Reusable ones
  • Heat-resistant
  • Easily available nowadays, like any street side or you can find it online too.

 

Why a few people don’t use earthen products?

 

  • Slow cooking process
  • High-risk of pot cracking if not using a pot of good quality.
  • Handling it with a little extra care
  • Clay pots can get hot quickly




How to wash it?

 

  • Just clean it using hot water and a stiff brush to clean the pot. Remember not to use detergent or soap. The soap will soak into the pores of the clay and will leach into your food the next time you cook it. You can use baking soda or salt as the cleaning agent with a scrub sponge.


1.  Clay Jug/ Matka for drinking water

 



When the summers are approaching, people buy Matka or the clay jug for drinking water. It helps in maintaining the water temperature.

This is made of 100% natural clay and does not use any artificial colors. The best part about this pot is that you can use it without keeping it in the refrigerator. 

 

Note: As per Ayurveda, drinking surcharge water helps in boosting one’s digestive system. Sun-charged water holds the goodness of the sunlight. You can keep it under the direct sun for almost 2 hours in the morning. Don’t forget to keep it by covering it with a muslin cloth. Anyone in the family-like kids, adults, etc. can drink it. Either you drink the water directly from it or add it to the drinking bottle of water. Slowly, you’ll notice a change in your health-related problems.

      2Drinking Glass Water

 


Again, this comprises natural clay in a glass form. You can use it for multi-purpose like you can service Tea/Coffee/water/juice/buttermilk/milk-shakes etc. in the glass. This is easy to clean too. There are different sizes of glasses available depending on what you like. Mainly the glass size is 150ml which seems good for serving milk/juice/water, etc... You can check it out before buying.


3. Clay/Earthen Kadhai/Pots for Cooking


Many got started using non-stick and other cookware materials that affected their health. Slowly, people are switching to a healthy lifestyle by using earthen products that are so natural. One should follow the proper instruction before cooking and using them wisely.

 

You can cook dal or any type of vegetable in the kadhai pot as you cook in others.

 This clay kadhai is heavyweight, strong, and durable. These are also available in different sizes, depending on the requirement, like if you need the kadhai 1 liter, 2 liters, 5 liters, etc.. this is available with and without a lid. Again, it is one’s ‌choice what exactly you’re using the kadhai for.



  1. 4. Clay Curd Pot (Dahi Handi)


 This is the most commonly used product in summers. The pot made with natural clay can keep the flavor of the nutrition. We can keep the pot in the refrigerator too. This is perfect for any type of weather.

 

 5Clay Night Lamp/Bowls/ Plates

 


There are several varieties available in earthen products. Though People are now supporting this cookware and noticing the change in their health too after using it. If you’re interested in seeing more collections, you can check out a few websites like mitticool.com, basicbrowns.com, Mitti Magic Store, etc.

 

You can use them on the stove and even they’re microwave safe and you can keep them in the refrigerator too. You just need to maintain the right temperature of the pot. You should ensure the quality of the products before buying them. It is great for cooking healthy food if one can use it well as per the instructions.

BOOK LAUNCH - THE ESSENCE OF MOTHERHOOD

Revealing the book cover

Book Launch Date: Jan 8th, 2022

Book Title: The Essence Of Motherhood

Sub-title: The ups and downs of being a Mom

Genre: Non-fiction (Motherhood)

About the Book:  Do you think motherhood is messy, along with messy houses, messy rooms, and messy clothes? If your answer is yes! Then yes! It is. It’s messy and beautiful.

The book is divided into two sections:

  1. Healthy Pregnancy: Pregnancy is divided into three phases called the three trimesters and I have tried to cover all the unique issues and events that occur in each trimester, answering the questions that most mothers or to-be-mothers have.  A few topics include healthy diet plans and exercise, maintaining self-love, garbh sanskar, packing your hospital bag, and how prepare yourself for the D-day.


  1. Cherish the Motherhood: At the end of nine months, you are able to hold your baby in your hands and see him or her for the first time. You are now officially a ‘Mother’! The second part of my book is about the so-called official motherhood stage once the baby is delivered. How can you take care of yourself in the postpartum period? How has your role as a mother changed now?



You must read this book if you:

  • Are a first-time parent
  • Are scared of pregnancy
  • Want to cherish motherhood


What can you expect from this book?


  • Fitness and diet plans for the three trimesters
  • Garbh Sanskar and the right techniques
  • Personal experiences of mothers
  • Positive visualization and thinking methods
  • How to deal with postpartum depression and weight
  • Experts interviews

The book will help you in having a positive mindset towards pregnancy. It’ll also give you a glimpse of what you can expect during and after the pregnancy phase. Motherhood is a beautiful journey but not a destination. This book will help you through this journey like a friend, a guide, and sometimes like a mother or mother-in-law.

About the Author: Radhika Jindal is a well-known blogger and a mother of a 3-year-old. She loves writing about relationships, motherhoods, books, parenting and self-care.
