February has the least number of days, hence I didn’t notice that it’s already March. (Edit: This is just an excuse, truth is, let me ask for an apology for the lack of updates :p). Anyway, February has some important activities for my toddler, Gwen, so I’m sharing it to you.
For 2 consecutive years now, Ate Rose always helps Gwen in making V-day cards. Si Ate Rose talaga ang nag-iinitiate nyan. They don’t do art activities in school that’s why I’m glad that Ate Rose is creative to help Gwen practice her creativity.
During Chinese New Year, we had fun in the kitchen making Lumpiang Tikoy with Cheese.
It’s never too early to let the kids help in the kitchen. It can be as simple as sorting the vegetables, mixing the salad, or passing the ingredients to you. It’s a nice bonding moment for the family plus a fun way to learn. Learning, after all, is not all about math and science. Life skills, mommies, is very important. Our child should know how to distinguish an onion and a garlic :p. Dapat alam nila yung ano itsura ng patatas before it is served to them as a french fries, mga ganun.
Lastly, Gwen has a new pet. It’s very unusual for a first pet though, it’s a quail. She named it “Pugo“, swak na swak di ba?
She plays with our neighbor’s cats and dogs too, we can’t give her a dog right now so Pugo will suffice. Giving pets to children helps develop a sense of responsibility according to study. Not only that, their social skills improve too. Older kids with dogs as pets can also develop their Body Smarts because they can exercise while walking or playing with their dogs.
That’s February in our household. We see to it that Gwen is not glued to the TV or in our phones at home. We were so lucky that Gwen has Ate Rose to play with.
If you noticed that I’m gushing so much with Multiple Intelligence, well, it’s a big deal for us. As early as now, I want Gwen to discover and develop skills which will help her achieve more. It’s our responsibility as parents to open the doors for them and make sure they are healthy and with proper nutrition.
Give your child Progress Pre-School Gold with a combination of expertly designed nutrients to support his multiple intelligence, helping him to achieve more.
