​Are we there yet? Turn that trip or errand into a simple, fun learning game that helps your child make sense of the world around him.

In the car: Use driving time to enhance your child’s natural curiosity. Find ways to interact and connect with your child.

On the bus or subway: Riding public transit exposes your child to different people and new things. Use this time to heighten your child’s sense of adventure.

On a walk: Taking your child on a walk is not only good exercise, but also allows them to experience nature and learn about the outdoors.

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