 Hello readers ,


I hope your well , todays blog will focus on curiosity play approach to learning. Curiosity play allows children to spark their imagination and base play around their thoughts. Children are driven to explore where they build a base for their own learning. The environment consists of neitral colours which means your child will not become over stimulated by bright colours you may find in your every day nursery/ pre school / kindergarten setting. Having a curiosity approach settings allows children to be lifelong learners who develop language and communication skills aswell as non verbal language who become independent thinkers. 


Here are some items which fall under the curiosity approach environment;



- wooden baskets

- pots and pans

- cups and saucers

- bottle tops and jar lids

You can make any object curiosity based. Let your child explore and make their own imagination their limit. Curiosity play will keep your child busy and engaged.

Food for thought.x

Hello readers 
This is not something I would usually do on my blog but I saw this and needed to share as too many of us in the world put ourselves down and regret things we should not. I really want to share this image with you all.
 We should not regret things we have or have not done, things we should have done and things we shouldn't have done. There is  no point giving ourselves a hard time for these things. We are strong. We are independent. We are good people. Never regret a moment of your lives. Live for today and never look back with regret. Focus on our futures and what we can do.

Who doesn’t love to bake? Getting the kids to join in to help will limit the time kids spend on screen time and spend some family time instead. Children will love to help and join you in the kitchen you can encourage them to do this as much as you can. Children will be occupied and away from screens when cooking with an adult and cooking reduces stress levels . Cooking activities can improve fine motor skills as kids will carefully hold cooking equiment in their hands using grasps for control. Children can develop their muscles by mixing with spoons and when using icing , squeezing the icing through the icing bags. When baking children are seeing numbers for the ingredients and how much they weigh, for older children who are able to recognise numbers you can ask how many grams / ounces or whatever measurements you wish to use are needed for the receipt. You can encourage your child to explore textures and you can describe the difference between the dry and …
