What activities can I do with my child at home? Learn with snacks!
As a Shichida teacher, one of the questions I get asked often is “what can I do with my child at home? I want my child to learn, but they only want to play.” At Shichida, we know that playing is learning! Learning can be fun. Learning is exploring, touching, and trying new things. A child can learn anywhere and anytime!
We have compiled a few ideas for you – try these fun, educational activities at home with some yummy snacks! Feel, sort, smell and imagine while enjoying snack time together.
Learning with food during snack time offers many benefits for kids, including promoting healthy eating habits, sensory exploration, language and math skills development, and fostering creativity. Using food during learning activities can be a fun and engaging way to introduce them to new flavours, textures, and concepts. Additionally, discussing food can expand children’s vocabulary and enhance their language skills. Overall, incorporating food into learning activities during snack time can offer a wide range of benefits for children.
Creating an “early learning toolkit” at home can provide your child with the resources they need to explore and learn. By using simple and accessible materials, such as food or snacks, you can create a fun and engaging learning environment for your child.
