Wonderful Ways to Love a Child

Wonderful Ways to Love a Child
By Judy Ford , 1944

Really love yourself.
Allow them to love themselves.
Learn about parenting.
Handle your children with loving care.
Give your presence, empty of distractions.
Listen from your heart
Speak kindly.
Encourage, encourage.
Try to understand, even the things not said with words.
Answer their questions.
Ask their opinions.
Learn from them.
Say yes as often as possible
Say no when necessary.
Honor their noes, because they sometimes mean “Not now,” or “I’m not ready.”
Celebrate mistakes, teach your children not to be afraid of failure.
Admit your mistakes
Touch gently
Teach that all feelings are acceptable. Feelings are neither right nor wrong.
Speak to their true feelings by helping them discover feeling they cannot express.
Let them cry.
Don’t hide your tears.
Make room for the crankies and the quarrels by managing conflicts and negative feelings, and not by suppressing them.
Teach values by example.
Honor their differences.
Share your dreams.
Change your routine, take a chance, try a new approach.
Laugh, dance, and sing together
Call them love names.
Send them love letters
Build lots of blanket forts
Fly kites together
Lighten up, don’t be so strict and serious all the time.
Take time away, you and your children need some time away from each other.
Read books aloud.
Create a circle of quiet by learning to slow down and take life a little more easy.
Play hooky together.
Don’t let guilt keep you from breaking away.
Go barefoot
Frame their art and hang it on the wall.
Stay up late together.
Delight in silliness, don’t forget to have fun in life.
Splash a lot, and have a playful squirt-gun water fight.
Keep messes in perspective. Remember that happiness is more important than an immaculate house.
Enjoy dinner together.
Generate family festivals: Simple, fancy, planned and unplanned.
Thank them for the little things
Focus on the joy they bring
Believe in possibilities by trusting in God’s divine nature.
Open up to the miracle of transformation
Remember that they have not been on the earth very long.
Marvel at how they are growing.
Let them help.
Cherish the innocence.
Listen for the spiritual language.
Build family-friendly neighborhoods.
Let go when it’s time
Let them come back
Show them compassion and ask for theirs
Protect all our children

Keep them in your hearts and in your prayers.It is not enough to feel love for your child; you must be able to express your love through your words and actions.

Snowflakes Are Falling Preschool Song

With all the snow falling I thought this would be a fun song to post today!

Snowflakes Are Falling
(To the tune of Mary had a little lamb)

Snowflakes falling,
from the sky,
from the sky,
from the sky.
Snowflakes falling
from the sky.
To the earth below.

Watch them as they
Dance and whirl
Dance and whirl
Dance and whirl
Watch them as they dance and whirl
Soft white winter snow!

Indoor Balloon Race's

Here is a great balloon activity you can sponsor without have to find a helium tank.

Tape a short length of plastic straw to the top of each balloon (already blown-up). Set up pairs of chairs a room-length apart, and cut string long enough to stretch between the backs. Feed the string through a straw on one of the balloons, then tie the ends to a pair of chair backs. Repeat this procedure for each player, then start the clock. This time everyone will have to blow the balloons while walking. One important rile: Players may not touch the balloons in any way.

On your mark, get set, blow!

(This activity is intended for older children only! Younger children should not play with balloons because of the possibility of suffocation!!)

Spoon Fun Rainy Day Game

Here's an entertaining and challenging activity you can do with an individual child or a whole bunch of kids!

The idea is simple! Hold a ping-pong ball on a spoon and walk around the house. But what if you make it more challenging? For example, see if your child can get around the house following a certain course without dropping the ball. As your child gets better at it, make up an obstacle course or a list of tasks to be done with your child's free hand, like moving a book from one table to another, opening and closing a door or drawer, patting his or her head, and so on!

If your child is older, see if he or she can hop around the course without dropping the ball. To really boost the difficulty, place the ball on an infant or medicine spoon.

Groups of kids can have the spoon races or play hide and seek: all of the people who are hiding must balance a ping-pong ball on a spoon as they dash for a hiding spot. If it falls, that's where they have to hide!

Make Your Own Ant Farm

Materials Needed:

* Two Jars
* Soil
* Ants
* Cereal or candy for Ants


This activity shows you how to make an ant farm with a few common household items.

All you need is a clear, large, wide-mouth plastic container and a smaller plastic container or drinking glass that fits inside, leaving a space about one-half to three-quarters of an inch wide. Careful- if the space is too wide, you won't be able to see the tunnels.

Fill up the area between the two containers with dirt. Add ants from your garden or back yard, and place a screen over the top for air. (If you can dig up a queen ant - she's larger - you'll extend the life of the ant farm.) Every few days drop in a bit of candy, jam or cereal. In a week or so, you should have a top-notch tunneling operation.

When your child has finished observing the ant farm, have him or her release the inhabitants back into the yard - their natural habitat. This is a good way to foster respect for all the critters on the planet!

Adopt A Tree Family Activity

The next time you take a walk, encourage your children to "adopt" a tree in a park or other public place. This makes for a personal connection between your child and his or her environment, and also builds a sense of local knowledge. Explain that no one can really own a tree, but that a person can take on the role of the tree's special friend and caretaker.

What are the responsibilities of tree keepers? First and foremost, they must get to know the tree- do bark rubbings with crayons and paper in the winter, look for flowers and fruits in the spring, and do leaf rubbings in the summer.

One walks, your child should bring along a drink of water for the tree. Older kids might also keep a little "log book", noting the tree's characteristics: height, leaf color, flowering time, fragrance, and so on. In addition, you might show your child how to use a tape measure - and note the tree's girth on a chart.

Finally, be sure to take pictures of your child standing next to the adopted tree once or twice a year. As your child gets older, the three will serve as a reminder of the patterns of growth common to all the residents of your community.

I would also recommend reading the book, "The Giving Tree" with your children!

Oh, Can't you see?

I'm a happy little heart
That's pink and white and red.
Happy Little Heart!

You can purchase play dough at the store, or make some of your own with flour, salt and water. Add in food coloring if you want to color the play dough you make.

Have your child close their eyes, and press something into the play dough, like a coin, a belt buckle, a watch band - or anything that has a pattern that will leave a mark on the play dough.

Then show the play dough to your child and ask if she can guess what made the mark? If she has trouble guessing, show her how you made the mark in the play dough. Then let her make an impression in the play dough while you are not looking.

She will have a great time trying to make impressions that you will not be able to guess!

Here is a recipe for play dough that does not need cooking! (Very simple)

Mix together:
* 1 cup flour
* 1/2 cup salt
* a little less than 1/2 cup water (just enough for the dough to mix together)

This activity helps your child learn about patterns. When she sees a copy of an object in the play dough, and figures out what it was, she is building her problem-solving and memory skills!

Go on a walk together and collect leaves of different shapes and sizes. Bring them home and lay them flat on a table. Cover a leaf with a piece of paper and using the broad side of a crayon, show your child how to rub the crayon on the paper right on top of where the leaf is lying underneath.

The shape and pattern of the leaf will appear on the paper. Talk together about how the leaves are different shapes, sizes, and make different patterns. Hang you child's artwork where his family and friends will see it!

This activity will help your child learn about shapes, patterns and textures!

When you are out in the community with your child, look for the American flag. Many government buildings, businesses and homes have flags flying that will be easy for your child to see. Every time you see a flag, point it out to your child.

Talk about the colors of the flag. After she is familiar with the flag, play a game of "I spy!" and see how many American flags she can find on your trip. Once your child is familiar with this game, you can play "I Spy" with many different things. For example, look for all of the blue cars, or at Christmas, look for all the houses with Christmas lights.

Your three year old is learning to recognize an object or symbol that is not always in the same place or context. This builds her memory and problem-solving skills.

Tuesday, January 12, 2010


On a day when you will have several hours to spend with your child, plan a trip to a new place that will have things for your child to see and experience. Think about your child doing something he really enjoys, or is good at. For example, does your child like to make art - painting and coloring? Does he love fish or dinosaurs or animals?

Think of a special place you can go together and explore. You can visit an art museum, a pet store, or a natural history museum that has dinosaur exhibits. You can go to the zoo, or a children's museum. Visit a regional park that may have a lake, picnic areas and playgrounds. Go on a shell-collecting trip to the beach or go to a pumpkin patch and pick out a pumpkin to carve.

Whatever you do on your special trip, talk about what you see and teach your three year old new words and ideas. At the zoo, learn the names of the animals together. At the park, talk about the different kinds of trees or plants or how the play equipment works.

Giving your child new experiences builds his mind and his words

Cut out several pictures from a magazine or draw several pictures that have something in common and could be put into a group together. For example, make groups of fruits or shoes or tree or furniture. Make at least three groups of pictures, with three pictures in each group, for a total of nine pictures.

Then lay out four pictures for your child to see. Three that are in the same group and one that is not. Ask your child to point to the picture that does not match. If he cannot find the one that is different, give him clues. For example, lay out three pictures of vegetable, and one tree. Say:

"Three of these you can eat, but one you cannot. Can you find the one you can't eat? It is something you can climb on."

Do the same thing with the other groups of similar pictures. Talk with your child about the pictures and how they are the same and how they are different. Your child may come up with some interesting ideas on how they are the same and different.

Your child is learning the ideas of "same" and "different.:

This can be a messy activity, but it's great fun for your child and helps him grow! Buy a can of inexpensive shaving cream next time you go to the store. Set up a place for your child to play with the shaving cream either outside on newspapers that are spread out, or inside on a large table that is easy to clean. Dress your child in something that can get dirty. Spray a good amount of shaving cream onto the newspapers or table and let your child with it, first with his hands.

You can also give him tools to make patterns in the shaving cream, like a plastic spoon or an old comb or brush. After he has played for awhile, help him smooth the shaving cream. Help him practice scribbling in the shaving cream with his finger, or making shapes like a square, circle or triangle.

Add a few drops of food coloring so he can try mixing the colors into the shaving cream, or mixing the colors together. This can be a fun activity for two or more children to experiment together with the shaving cream,

Your child is learning about patterns, shapes, and colors, and using his fingers and sense of touch to play with the shaving cream.

Give your child a paper bag or other container that can hold several items. Tell her you are going on a "numbers hunt." Make a list of five things that your child will have to find on her numbers hunt. On a piece of paper, write the numbers 1 to 5 from the top to the bottom of the paper, and then draw the object next to the number.

For example:

1- (picture of ball) (write the word ball)
2. (picture of two socks) (write the word socks)

Go with your child as she hunts for the items, and help her count each item as she puts it in her bag. Be sure the items are in safe places for her to look and reach. Once she has all the items, dump them out and help her sort them.

Make a big "show" of checking the item off your list for example, "Did you find one ball?". When she picks up or points out the ball, count together, "One Ball. Check." And check the item off your list. If she missed an item, help her figure out what to do. For example, "1-2-3 blocks. We need four blocks. Can you find one more block?"

Your child is learning about counting and sorting as she hunts for a specific number of objects.


You can make learning about numbers fun!

Tell your child: "Today, let's see how many things we can find that are 'two' - today is '2' day!"

Throughout the day, search for things that come in two's.

For Example: "We wear two shoes, we have two eyes, a bicycle has two wheels."

See how many things your three year old can find or create in two's. At mealtimes, help your child group his food in sets of two, and count them as he eats them,
"one, two!"

When walking, count your steps in two's.
"One, two, one, two, one, two.

Help your child learn what the number looks like, by showing him the number on a piece of paper or in a book. Or, write it on the sidewalk with chalk.

Learning the concept of numbers will help your child learn about counting and math!

Take turns with your child hiding three or four objects around the house or outside in a small area. You can hide small stuffed animals, blocks, balls or socks.

At first let your child watch while you hide the objects. As she becomes familiar with the game, see if she can find the objects that hide while she is not looking. If she needs help finding the objects, use "close" and "far" to let her know if she is getting close.

For example, say: "you are getting close, close, closer!" When she moves close to an object, or "Ooh, you are far away, farther away, even farther away" as she moves away from an object.

This activity helps develop your child's memory and the concepts of close and far away.


Your child may want to read the same book over and over again. He is learning when he does this, so play along! After you have read a book to your child several times, see if your child can "fill in the blanks."

This works particularly well if the words in the story rhyme. On each page, read the beginning of a sentence, but leave off the last word and see if your child can fill in the missing word. If he can't think of the word, read it to him, and see if he remembers it the next time you read it.

Reading a story over and over and letting your child fill in the missing words helps build his memory!

I'm a little dreidel, (Point to yourself)
I am a little top, (Pat your head)
When you twist my handle, (spin around)
I spin until I drop! (Fall to the floor)


I made a snow friend out of snow
One winter day, one winter day.
I made a snow friend out of snow
One winter day in the morning.

I rolled a snowball big as could be
One winter day, one winter day.
I rolled a snowball big as could be
One winter day, in the morning.

I made another one, smaller you see,
One winter day, one winter day.
I made another one, smaller you see,
One winter day in the morning.

I rolled one more; now I had three
One winter day, one winter day.
And stacked them up as quick as could be
One winter day in the morning.

I added a nose and two eyes to see
One winter day, one winter day.
I gave him a mouth. He said "hi" to me
One winter day in the morning~

Frosty Snow Pictures

Have the children draw outdoor pictures on pieces of colored construction paper. Make a solution of 1/2 Epsom salts and 1/2 water. Have the children paint their pictures with the mixture. As the mixture dries, it will leave sparkling crystals on their papers.


Turn greeting card pictures into snow scenes. Have the children paint over used Christmas cards with the Epsom salts and water mixture. Or let them brush the pictures with glue and sprinkle on glitter.

Simple Snowflakes Preschool Art Project

Show the children how to fold coffee filters in half and then in half again. Have them cut small triangles out of the folded edges.

Then have them unfold their filters to see the snowflakes they have created!

Snowball Science Experiment

Let the children go outside and make two small snowballs. Have them place each snowball in a paper cup.

Place one cup outside and one cup inside. Together, observe the two snowballs.

Ask the children to tell you what is happening to the snow. Why is the snow melting inside but not outside?

You can also chart how long it takes for the snowballs to melt!


Q-Tip Snowflakes Art Project

Give each child three Q-tips cut in half and a small square of aluminum foil. Squeeze a small amount of glue in the center of each piece of foil. Have the children arrange their six Q-tip pieces on their foil squares with the cut ends of the Q-tips touching to make star-like snowflakes.

When the glue completely dries, peel off the foil pieces. Then tie loops of thread to the snowflakes and hang them in a window.

They will look just like snowflakes!
