Watch the video below! This explains children and their BIG feelings. Young children are still trying to learn how to understand, control, and cope with their feelings. We as adults, parents, and caregivers still struggle at times with our feelings and need to keep this in mind when the child in our life has their next "fit". https://vimeo.com/136542833?ref=fb-share&fbclid=IwAR3ERra7yEA6sBVCw4jHSkkGUUe3QKihgtOSKhVl2mdGORlf9n7jlHLCIU8

Have some fun with the kids indoors, making bird feeders out of pine cones! -Tie a string to the pine cone to hang it outside when finished. -Have your child roll the pine cone in peanut butter or honey. (They can also use a spoon or other utensil to spread it on.) -Then have your child roll the pine cone in birdseed. *For this activity you can buy pine cones at the store or you and your child can look outside for some! If you want another option other than pine cones, you can also use old toilet paper rolls! This can be a messy activity, but messy is GOOD! This is a great sensory activity for those little fingers! 😊

Accidents can happen in an instant. --Always wait until the tub is finished filling before putting your child in because the temperature can change as it fills. --Beware of sharp edges, especially with kids. Use a rubber cover for the faucet and avoid hard bath toys. --This information can be found at the website: https://blog.healthalliance.org/national-bath-safety-month/
