Parenting has never been easy, especially during the times of lockdown and social distancing norms. Pre-schoolers learn all the time, especially when they play. A play-based preschool activity for kids at home can be fun and educational.
For toddlers, learning is fun, especially when involved in any activity. It improves their creative skills and thinking ability. Spending special time with children will not only help you build your relationship and but is good for your child’s development and wellbeing.
Many parents at home with toddlers and pre-schoolers are looking for ways to keep them occupied while helping them in their physical and mental development.
Importance of gadget-free learning
Teaching kids at home is pretty challenging but has its benefits. As a parent, you must have a precise plan on how to prepare your child to understand the new learning method. Parents can devise innovative ways to develop a learning habit and improve formative skills.
Kids have a big imagination and the skills learned from interaction with technology add value to their imagination. However, it is advised to keep the child away from technology and gadgets during their crucial years of physical and mental development.
The first 5 years of life are the most intensive for a child to acquire language and communication skills. The skills develop best in the world with consistent exposure, sights, and sounds of others.
According to experts, children who spend their childhood in front of screens are more likely to have sleep problems, hyperactivity, language delay, and other issues.
During childhood, the child should be provided with adequate language and creative nutrition like – talking, reading books, playing, singing, etc. This is crucial for emotional, physical, and communication development.
It is important to use different resources within your child’s reach to pique curiosity. Parents should involve their child in learning activities at home, art & craft, board games, etc.
Gadget-Free learning activities for preschoolers
Children learn from the moment they start interacting with the environment. Gadget-free and real-life learning activities have a strong impact on their brain development. There are several activities to do at home that can engage the child in a better way.
The learning experience in early childhood plays an important role in conceptual as well as language development. Most children feel safe and secure in their home environment, which parents can utilize to develop strong emotional feelings. Let’s take a look at the activities you can try at home with your child for an enhanced learning experience –
– Teaching numbers and quantities using labels on cans
