The bus pulls in front of the house and the kids are home for the day. How can that be? I am still in my pajamas sipping coffee?
Oh, yeah. Pinterest happened.
I love Pinterest for a lot of reasons but it is an invaluable resource for parents and encouraging literacy skills. Skip the perfect party pictures and the snacks too beautiful to eat. There is a smorgasbord of easy to do, no frills activities for the average parent to create for their child. You don’t have to be Picasso or Van Gogh to recreate the pins.
Follow my Pinterest Board Literacy Activities Toddlers to find great ways to encourage gross motor skills, fine motor skills, letter awareness, phonological awareness, books, and more.
Some of my favorites use objects we have in our homes. No fancy tools needed and keeping it basic is the best way to go. None of this should feel overwhelming, so if it starts to feel that way pare it down! Learning should be fun for both you and your child.
The best teachers know where to look for information instead of recreating the wheel. Find what works for you and your family and enjoy!
