When children’s imaginations are encouraged,
they are more likely to become good problem solvers
This week, try these creative activities with your preschooler:
Make bubbles! Mix together liquid dish soap and water. Put the mixture in a cup and show your child how you can blow bubbles into it with straws to make more bubbles. Dip in a slotted spoon or other objects and wave them around the room to make bubbles. This activity encourages scientific thinking and technology.
Clean and save eggshells. Break them into small pieces and give them to your child to glue on paper. While it may not seem like much, this easy activity aids in creative thinking and expression.
Encourage your child to order his or her own meal at a restaurant by saying, “tell our waiter what you would like to eat or drink.”. This activity is great for helping your child’s social and emotional development!
