Hello and communication P2

Still image for this video

After singing the hello song together; build some communication with your child.

Talk about how he/she is feeling today (happy or sad), use a mirror to show your child their reflection, pause wait for a response... usually your child will smile, still, or show a sad face.  (allow a little time for them to look and observe their faces, they like that).

Talk about the day of the week and the weather (open the window for your child to experience the weather; cold, rainy or sunny). Include siblings in the communication and interaction to help with the flow.

Time for Fine Motor Skills

Pull long wavy grass

These are very simple ideas to help your child develop their fine motor skills.

 

Please find boxes or containers available within your home.

Make random holes and attach few strings, tie two knots, one inside the box or containers and one outside so it can't slip through. 

Allow your child to explore and have fun by pulling on the strings (Your child might be able to explore independently or he/ she may require your hep).

 

(please share your photos with us).

Ball game

Please choose which ball activity you find suitable for you child.

 

Find a box or a muffin tray found at home. If using a box, make 5 hols similar to the example above.

Collect 5 small balls or use foil to make 5 small/ medium balls (be aware of mouthing).

Hand over hand, help you child to explore and place the balls in the holes (some children will be able to do this independently, they may only need modelling and guidance).

 

You may want to try the Bear box with you child using different textures and enjoy a ball game, they will love that.
