With the global outbreak of the Coronavirus vírus and the spread among communities, the number of children at home is increasing with school closings. I see parents with the challenge of keeping children busy while at home, so here something I found in my local library worth sharing.
I love to make crafts with my daughters – it’s a way I find to making memories while helping them with their development. While at the my local library a couple of months ago, I found this calendar posted in the youth area that you can print at home, with daily activities you can do with your little one at home to keep them busy.
I have been using this calendar since January and it is so helpful. I get so many ideas from it. For example, with my 4 years old preschooler, we are learning the alphabet and words that start with respective letters. Today is March 12 2020 – according with the calendar, it’s flower day! So we are learning words that start with the letter F and making flowers as part of our art project of the day as you see pictured, besides planting seeds together like the calendar suggested. Carolina who is 18 months also is part of it, of course with some adjustments for her age group.
My girls love it and it is now part of our routine to check the calendar every day to see what’s going on.
Here’s the link for you to print the calendar of your choice accordingly with your age group. Let me know if you like it in comments!
