Young Parent Program ~
Hey everyone! It's a beautiful day outside and I hope you all get to enjoy the sunshine at some point during your day. Our weather seems to be taking a turn for the better, sunny days ahead!
With that, here is a tip sheet on how to have 15 Minutes of Family Fun Outdoors!
So many things we already do with our kids teaches them an abundance of developmental skills, which is great! Always know that you're doing a great job parenting and that activities don't need to be overly complicated in order to have a positive impact on your parent-child bond. A simple game of Simon Says works wonders for exercising our children's brains in the early years. Or the game Red Light, Green Light is another that helps build all sorts of executive functioning like following directions, colour recognition, taking turns, etc..
PRO TIP: Take some time to plan a picnic, enjoy all five senses (sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch) as you enjoy your snacks together outside!
Stay Safe, Stay Healthy, Stay Connected
