i don't buy toys that doesn't give them educational benefits.   

when they were  babies, i buy toys that would teach them shapes and colors.  the basics.
now, that one is a grader and the other is a preschooler, we'd paint, mold clays, etc. to enhance their imaginations.  we'd also write whatever we want to improve their handwriting.  i'd usually do activities that would instill values to them like sharing and being considerate to others.

recently, we didn't opted not to have any academic summer classes.  so we enrolled them in an art class.  but apart from that, i assigned my eldest to read a book on manners.  and just last week, we had our own culminating activity on restaurant manners.  she had her first fine dining experience with me, noting what she has read from the book.

what i learned is that, my son is predisposed to gadgets and other techy stuff. as we don't want him curled up at home, we limit his time on the gadgets --- like its gadget day, only on Saturday! so he looks forward to that. but schooldays and sundays, no.

this summer, he had swimming class and the ongoing kiddie crew workshop.

he still enjoys the afternoon bike rides around the village though. i tried instilling in him the interest for more traditional learning materials, like books and workbooks, but he's really the type that he gets bored, and so, outdoor muna kami. school will train him for those things naman. i just let him play clay and tracing to enhance his writing skills. pre-schooler na kasi.

trips around the village, at the zoo, at the grocery --- pretty much are learning experiences too, depending on the adult  that's with them. it's like being homeschooled on the summer. you talk and engage his interests a lot by explaining what you see, and instilling the values that you like.

Hi Moms!

I am into accessories making.  I have an online store.  I guess nahawa na rin ang anak ko sa akin.  Just recently, she surprised me with her handamde ring.  Please read my blog.  Hope you enjoy it.

I like this very much!! Maybe the occasional toy like a water gun is okay but giving them toys with a purpose is great too.

I love this!! I think I need to do this too to my child, kaya lang some of his books are in the iPad too. He's starting to read by himself na. My plan is when he can read na talaga on his own, that's mostly what he'll do!  Or may be paint or something... basta wag lang mashadong iPad.

For my 2yo son, ang fave game niya ngayon are wooden puzzles like the alphabet, numbers, shapes and animals. Mura lang naman, kaya yun ang maladas kong bilhin. I also bought him a white board and marker for doodling.  For outdoor activities, biking. Di ko talaga sya binilhan ng motorized car, kase I think, wala naman syang makukuhang benefit dun kase basta lang syang nakaupo. Yung video time niya, puro educational vids. And at his age, he surprised me just the other day na he can read all the colors, shapes, body parts and some other words!  ;D

For my 2yo, she loves puzzles so she would normally play with those or just recently, i let her play with macaroni. Hehe. It enhances her fine motor skills, counting skills, and
Imagination thru pretend play :)

Hello mommy. How old is your baby na po? I remember, my bonding moments with my parents when I was still young would be playing chess and jackstone.  :)  or you can also scout po for special classes during saturdays. Like with Southville International School and College here in Las Pinas, the school offers Saturday classes for kids. Currently, they have soccer, karate, arnis and also Junior Chef Program.  you can also teach the child household chores pero in a fun way. I remember, my mom taught me how to do laundry as early as 6 and we would do it together po!  :) just like playing.

how old is your kid?  mine is 2 years and 8 months and he knows na how to count to twenty (not just rote counting, but he really knows what 1 means and what 15 means).
I cut out his footprints on cartolina (20 pcs).  Then i wrote the numbers 1-20 on each footprint.  I let him color each footprint.  Then we play.  I ask him to arrange the numbers.  Or sometimes i ask him to follow the footprints in order.  Or sometimes i ask him to go to a particular number.


Another activity we do, is cook together.  We fry eggs.  Or mix pancakes.  Or pizza.  He loves getting his hands dirty!!

For physical naman, we really encourage him to try out different sports.  He likes basketball, he's good at dribbling na.  He also tries out baseball, tennis and bowling.  You can buy the cheap plastic toys for these.  Mga tig-50-100 lang.  It's good for eye-hand coordination.

He can also read 3 letter words na, though i think hindi pa phonetic ang pag-read niya but more on memorizing the shape of the words (sight reading).  I labelled everything in the house.  He goes around saying, "T-A-B-L-E spells table" or "F-A-N spells fan".

I'm just so glad he loves and enjoys learning.  And his love for learning inspires me to think of creative ways to make learning fun for him.

ako mommy, since 2yo pa lang si baby and now she's turning 5, I do worksheets related to writing names, alphabets, shapes and numbers and even coloring pages that she can work on. syempre, as she progresses, nag lelevel up din un mga worksheets.

Kung medyo wala ko time to do worksheets depending on her need, I do get materials that can be printed from kids websites. super dami, mag google ka lang mommy and un ready for printing na.. konting tyaga lang to look for materials that would fit to your child.

hope this helps  ;)

puzzles! may time na addict yung anak ko sa puzzles, around 3yo ata siya nun. :) playing with building blocks/lego din hanggang ngayon super enjoy niya.

we always read, lalo na before sleeping. and ngayon na malaki na siya, chapter books na yung binabasa namin. i'm also teaching him how to play Boggle (pero wala nang timer). tapos we play cashier kasi may mga play money siya from school. :)
