Get more out of everyday moments with your children!⠀
When walking with your child in your community, ask them what they notice. When you’re back home, ask them questions about what they saw. This can lead to exciting and detailed exploration of those experiences through block play, drawing, or clay!⠀
Try asking “What do you notice about the outside of that building?” or “What kinds of things do they make/sell in this store?” ⠀
