What activities can I do with my child at home? Try activities with rice!
At Shichida Australia, we believe that children learn best through play! As a Shichida teacher, parents often ask me, “What can I do with my child at home? I want them to learn, but they just want to play.” Well, the truth is that playing is learning! Learning should not be a chore. Children learn best when they are actively exploring, touching, and trying new things. That’s why we encourage the use of learning tools at home. By using these tools, children can learn anywhere while having fun!
We have compiled a few ideas for you – try these fun, educational activities using learning tools at home with some rice, beans, pasta or sand! Scoop, measure, and find while enjoying some fun time together.
Sensory play is especially important for young children, as it helps them develop their motor skills, language, and problem-solving abilities. By playing with rice, your child can explore different textures, colours, and shapes, which can enhance their cognitive development.
