At Home

You can turn everyday household chores and activities into fun learning games for your child, no matter how young she or he is.

Doing laundry: Laundry is a frequent activity that young children love to join in on - from watching clothes tumble to matching up socks. Find fun ways to help your children take part in these chores.

At meals: For many, meals are a time when the whole family comes together. Learn how your mealtime discussions can help the development of your child and ways that meals foster learning.

At bedtime: Help your child wind down at the end of the day and discover ways to make bedtime less stressful and more calming for all involved.​

These tips were developed for Born Learning by Mind in the Making, a project of the Families and Work Institute and New Screen Concepts.
