Educational activities you can do with your child at home

Activities that don’t cost much

Toys are great, books and workbooks are great, but you can also do things that don’t cost much.

All you need is some paper and crayons or markers.

We use drawing paper roll from IKEA

but you can also find it on amazon or some craft stores:

Holder for drawing paper roll:

Best crayons for toddlers:

We have tried different ones, but these ones are the best:

My son, who is 2,5  ( at the time of writing this post ) loves writing numbers.

Of course he is too small to be able to do it all by himself, instead he holds a crayon,and I hold his hand and we write or draw things like that:

I hope this gives you some idea how you can teach your child numbers, quantities, shapes, sizes etc.

Of course these exercises are still fine even if your child is older than 2,5 or even younger than that, take your clue from your child. If he/she enjoys it, by all means do it, but it he/she doesn’t like it, don’t push. And try to stop the activity when your child is still enjoying it. Yes, I know, it sounds weird, but what the soap operas producers do? -They stop at the most interesting moment, so you want to come back for more. With your child it will work the same.

Good luck! And remember to enjoy it. Learning should be fun, both for you, and for your child.
