Jogging Memories with a Journal

As your children begin to learn to write, encourage them to keep a journal. This practice will enhance their arithmetic skills while allowing them to create memories from their childhood. Many of us might not have clear memories of when we were young. By encouraging your little ones to record their favorite remembrances and exciting milestones, they will have pages of memories on which to reminisce.

Begin by asking your children to write a great, funny or inspiring thing that happens to them each day. Doing this will also boost their moods by noting uplifting things that are surfacing in their lives.

Let’s Have a Baking Party!

When children create their own birthday treats, it is both fun and a great boost to their self-esteem! So, why not make the cake a canvas for children’s creativity at your child’s next birthday bash? For this fun activity, simply supply the children with plain cupcakes and a selection of icings and toppings and let your little ones and their friends decorate to their hearts’ content!

Another fun and creative baking birthday party activity is making handprint cookies. Just roll out pre-made dough on a clean surface, place each child’s clean hands on the dough and trace their hands with a safe cooking tool, like a butter knife or drink stirrer. After the cookies have baked and cooled, paint each child’s hands with colored frosting and have the children press their hands onto their cookies. This will leave colorful icing handprints on the cookies.
