    Creative art activities are fun! They also provide valuable in-depth learning experiences.

    Children love to experiment with sounds (voices and instruments), to discover how art materials and tools work (dough, markers, drums, streamers), and to explore body movements (dance, facial expressions, fine-motor skills).

    Give your toddler the chance to try a wide range of art activities that are not only fun but, extremely beneficial to their development. Children's imaginations blossom through art and music!

    Outdoor play is all about fresh air and healthy bodies. Playing outdoors regardless of the season, children discover nature’s glory while developing their motor skills.

    Whenever the weather is nice and warm, you can take your child’s usual activities out in the sun (or in a shady spot). Even if the weather is gloomy, there still are lots of play activities you can try outdoors with your child.

    In a nutshell, just about everything inside can be turned into fun outside!

    In the early years, your child’s main way of learning and developing is through play. Play is fun for your child and gives him an opportunity to explore, observe, experiment, solve problems and learn from his mistakes. He’ll need your support and encouragement to do this. But it’s important to try to find a balance between helping him and letting him make mistakes, because finding out for himself about how the world works is a big part of learning.
