I can't believe it, I'm officially a mommy and I want to entertain + educate= edutertain my baby, hooray! Challenge accepted, and because I'm no teacher, but I do looove to research, I found easy & fun activities that I'm excited to share! Here are my favorite 5 easy activities from a new mommy and an awesome sweet deal for you!
(1) Story Time ☔⏱️
Many experienced moms, like sister, have mentioned this idea and I'm glad I finally researched it. Great for 6months & up - available at your local library, bookstore, or from home! At my bookstore, we have it twice a week, I was so excited to go. They followed story time with questions and a coloring activity. If you are bilingual and want to stay at home, here are my favorite bilingual books, read, ask questions and learn together!
(2) Explore and Associate☔⏱️
One of my favorite bloggers, got a mason jar, put all the possible explore & associate activities: cook, baking, farmer's market, family hike, etc. Once a week pulls an idea plan, such as baking cookies, and associates the activity to a learning opportunity. Following instructions, textures, numbers (while counting eggs, etc), and perhaps listening to a little music together while waiting for the cookies to finish baking. This makes conversations more fun and extra cute videos!
(3) Sensory Day ☀️☔
Example Water Day: watercolors, pool day, water balloons, water park, water table with sensory water games (fishing) - and because I want to always provide you with the research I did, here are my favorite affordable water tables:
(4) Play & Share Together ☀️☔⏱️
Vocabulary Game Day: my favorite books just came out with a bilingual lotería. How adorable is this! However, I'm going to share (for adults, as a bonus) my favorite new millennial lotería:
I also wanted to include these amazing, skill builder puzzles for all ages
