Most of the time we find it hard to grasp just how considerably and amazingly the minds of toddlers who are one and two years old work. They can comprehend things which we will sometimes think they simply can’t. And they comprehend them a lot quicker than we think. They absorb by listening, observing and watching. So in order to improve their experience of education we should involve them in activities that will encourage them and get them to think and wonder. Just getting them play with lifeless toys is not going to do any good. They may get entertained by these toys and these toys will help keep them occupied but they are definitely not going to help them enhance their growing minds. So mentioned below are some simple means in which we can inspire creative growth in toddlers.
Having fun with paint
Most of the parents are very much cautious to give children in the playgroups an opportunity to have fun with paint. They are typically horrified of the chaos the children would produce and the collective expression we here when we advise allowing them to frolic with paint is ‘but they don’t know how to paint’. These children most probably would not know the way to hold a paintbrush but they can certainly have loads of pleasure painting with their hands. It’s definitely going to get a little untidy, but how else do the kids have fun if not by making a mess. This is what gives them pleasure and we pleasure when watching the smile on their faces. And you can effortlessly turn this into an educational experience by requesting them to paint over tape that has been glued in the shape of numbers or alphabets on a sheet of paper, and once the child is done painting the whole sheet of paper you can easily get rid of the tape to expose the number or alphabet.
Raise the value of their work
In the same manner similar to adult’s even children like to valued and praised for their accomplishments and the work they have done. You walk into an enrichment class in Singapore and you will see educators using numerous methods to encourage and appreciate the effort that kids are putting in. The identical thing can be done at home by the use of pennies in the till or star charts. Children love it when their own work is shown for the whole world to see. You can get them to create pictures with pastels on drawing sheets and then press the images onto a t-shirt or any type of material using a searing iron. The wax on the pastels will get conveyed onto the material and the image will show up.
Reinforcement and appreciation go together and will surely make the children progress and develop their skills.
