Ways To Stay Active In Summer With Virtual Preschool
It’s Summer, and that means kids are home from school for the next few weeks. While that is fun for them, it can be stressful for parents who may not have access or time to enroll their child in a summer camp program. Luckily, we are in a golden age of online content that can get your toddler active and stimulate their mind! Read on for some suggestions regarding virtual preschool classes you can enroll in.
Fun in the (virtual) sun!
1 – Movement classes
Movement classes are a great way to encourage your child to move and stay active during the day! These classes can range from light exercise to dance classes. Make sure your child has comfortable clothes to move in, and plenty of water to keep them hydrated! These classes are not only good for growing bodies, but can also help shake off some excess energy, making for a calmer rest of the day for you and your child.
2 – Virtual play date programs
Virtual playdates allow for children to connect with others their age via video conferencing software like Zoom or Skype. Playdates typically involve teacher-led activities and stories for all in attendance, and allows for your child to share information about their interests and personality with others in the group. These classes are not only engaging, but can also lead to offline friendships if your child connects with another classmate!
3 – DIY classes
DIY (or, Do-It-Yourself) activities are perfect for creative young minds, and often involve materials you already have around the house! DIY classes will encourage your child to recycle common household items like paper towel holders, boxes, and scrap paper and transform them into things like puzzles and artwork. Not only are these great for displaying around the house, but they often can provide continuous entertainment for days to come!
4 – Storytime videos
If your child is interested in having a quieter day, finding some storytime videos can be a great way to allow them to do this while also stimulating their minds.
After screen time is done
When screen time is done for both you and your child, take some time away from electronics to spend quality time together. Planning a trip to a local attraction, taking a walk around your block, or simply sitting down and talking about your days are great ways to stay connected and take a break from screens.
