Parents can teach children responsibility by having them help with simple tasks around the house.
Group projects lend themselves to providing young children with the opportunity to share and work together toward an end goal.
Children need the opportunity to work out conflicts that come up in everyday play situations — around the yard, to the end of the block, in the park — sharing a truck, waiting for the red marker to be available, or including a new child in their group of friends.
This activity provides “hands-on” experience of the concept of sharing.
Young children feel great pride in even the smallest accomplishments. It is important for all adults in a child’s life to foster these feelings of pride and self-confidence.
This activity fosters sharing and discussion as children talk about their drawings in the quilt. It also allows for the celebration of each child’s uniqueness!
This activity encourages children to express how they are feeling using their hands and words.
