Even though your child may be going to pre nursery singapore it is just for a few hours and you will have to find ways to keep them from being bored and sitting idle so that you can catch up on a few pages of the book that you were reading or else just grab a peaceful cup of coffee. Here are a few easy and innovative activities for your child to do at home that will give you at least half an hour to catch your breath even more if the activity really catches the fancy of the child.
Busy Box: This is just a bunch of child-safe items that you can put into a box for your child to pick up examine, dump out of the box and fill it back up. It is important to make sure that there are different shapes and textures in the box so that the child will be busy for longer.
Stacking Cups: this activity can actually keep your kid busy for hours on end. Just give them a new set of small dental cups and show them how to stack it. As this is different from the usual stacking of blocks it will hold their attention for longer.
Snow Scene: with the help of play-doh and small animal figures you can make a snow scene for your child. If snow is not your scene then mix it up with green for grassland or brown for a forest scene and let your child imagine what may be going on between the animals.
Post-it Art: with the help of packets of colorful Post-its you can ask your child to create an art installation on one of the walls of their rooms. After they are done sticking the post-its they can also add colors and other finer details onto the post-its and tell you the story of what they wanted to show with the installation.
Finger Painting: this may be a messy task so it may be best for you to do this before bath time. It will help your child enhance their creativity.
High chair painting: similar to finger painting this can also be a very messy job. By using something with texture such as shaving cream or vanilla pudding your child learns sensory play and this will help develop motor skills in the child.
