  1. I do a lot of these things with my kids. Reading is a big one. I love books, so I always read to them when they were tiny.

  2. They really learn by watching and all of these activities include you take individual time with your cild. In homes with multiple children, this is a good reminder to take that time with each child

  3. You are so right; talking is key! I have a two year old, and people are always amazed at her vocabulary, but from day one, we spoke normally to her (no baby talk), and read anything (not just children’s books). Their minds are truly sponges! I havent tried to cook with her, so I think I will give that a whirl. Thanks for the tip!

  4. These are all great ideas on helping your child to learn. There are so many parents these days that pass their kids an electronic with an app, that they seem to have forgotten the most important thing…we are our childs first teacher.

  5. I love these tips! They can be applied to adult life as well. I feel like this is one way to relearn things.
    The best way I used to find things earlier to remember was signing and trying to remember something specific about that item or thing.

  6. I think that developing and stimulating a child’s education- whether that be through STEM or creative is so important. I like the idea of messy play and cooking or baking with them!

  7. Talking to them all the time is so important! I used to work as a cashier and a lot of the parents, when going through the self check out, would show the fruit/vegetable to their child and tell them what it is. I thought it was a really good way to help with their learning
