We skipped the Story Time today because I want my little daughter to get a day of rest. I mean, we didn’t do any traveling today. It’s windy and chilly outside this morning. Though we stayed home all day, we did some indoor and outdoor activities.
Play-Doh Time – My darling daughter is already interested in playing with Play-Doh. She enjoys mashing, rolling, and squeezing the modelling compound. There are tools included in her Play-Doh kit. So she can make shapes, mold pattern and objects. In this activity, she will be able to develop creativity and use her imagination in constructing.
Reading – My daughter loves it when we read storybooks. She couldn’t get enough of them. The library is one of her favorite places to hang out. Well because there is a children’s computer where she can try Dora games. Also, there’s a play area for infants and toddlers in the kids section in the library. She enjoyed interacting with other young children there as they play. When we are at home, we read storybooks and activity books. She likes look and find, touch and feel, and push-button musical story books.
Baking – Sometimes when the weather is not cooperating and no errands to do, my little princess and I bake cupcakes or a cake. She likes to help. She’s my little helper in the kitchen.
Swing – Whenever we go outdoors, she never fails to ride on her swing. She has so much fun with it.
Blowing Bubbles – I always have a bubbles available because my little girl sometimes wants to blow bubbles, chase them, and pop them. Also, it keeps her busy whenever I am doing tasks in the garage or in the garden.
Watering the plants – In the summer or whenever it’s warm, we go outside to water. She has her own pail and watering can. She loves playing in the water, too.
Walking – A pleasant day is always an ideal time to go for a walk. My daughter and I do this in the mornings or late afternoons. Saying hi to the neighbors we see along the way. Also, it’s a good exercise at the same time.
So there’s some of our indoor and outdoor activities on ordinary days. We make it fun as much as we can. Specially, spending time together and making it enjoyable and learning is the most important.
How about you?
