Research has shown that reading, singing, and talking to your baby while they are in the womb promotes brain activity and can promote early literacy skills and language development. Literacy skills continue to develop while continuing this with your baby after they are born. Even though a baby is not able to speak, they are learning about the world around them.

Happy Valentine's Day! Looking for an inexpensive way to show your child some love today? Make short simple notes. Note different things that you like about your child, why you are proud of them, and that you love them. Hide the notes around the house and have your child find them. Sit with your child and read each note to them. They will enjoy the time with you as well as the sweet words.

Fred Rogers was right when he said that for our children, play is serious learning and it is the work of childhood. Promote your child playing, this is where they will learn.

A quote from Fred Rogers. Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children, play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.

Here is a fun Valentine snack activity for your kiddo. Find different ingredients that you would like to add to the mix. These may be items you already have on hand. You can use things like chex mix, M & M's, raisins, marshmallows, pretzels, teddy grahams, or any other favorite snack item. Let your child help make the mix by putting the ingredients together and mixing it. If your child is a bit older you can "read off a recipe" off to your child as they follow the steps. For example, "Put 5 marshmallows in the bowl. Next, put 3 raisins in. Mix well." Your child will enjoy helping create this snack with you!

Keep’em Clear

Does your child not like to get all bundled up to go outside? Or maybe it is too cold to be outside? Your child can still enjoy the snow by bringing it inside! Fill a container such as a pan, tub, or bowl with snow and bring it indoors. Your child can play with just the snow or you can add small toys and/or containers for them to play with too. Another idea is letting them paint on the snow! Put water in some small bowls or cups, add a few drops of food coloring, give them paint brushes, and let them be an artist!
