Top Activities for Preschoolers

The activities that are created for preschoolers are usually more advanced than the ones that toddlers are doing. This is because preschoolers are already at the age when they can already start learning more and they will be able to process things better than toddlers.

The activities that preschoolers have to do should still be fun enough so that even when they are learning, they do not feel like they are doing lessons. Rather, they will associate the lessons with activities that are fun and exciting.

A father and son may opt to do activities at home that may be more inclined to sports. Team sports may not be recommended yet because they can be a bit too daunting for preschoolers. One example of a sport that may be done is soccer. Remember to choose peewee soccer so that preschoolers will be able to grasp the fun of the game rather than become frustrated with the rules.

For those who believe that preschoolers should not be exposed to sports just yet, there are some activities that they can do instead.

  • Creating a Collage

Preschoolers will be able to understand that they can cut different types of paper or perhaps use different set of leaves in order to create a collage. This fun activity will surely be treasured by a lot of children especially if they are given the praise that they need for their efforts.

  • Creating Caterpillars

This is especially beneficial for toddlers who would like to learn more about colors. While giving instructions on each circle that will represent the caterpillar, preschoolers will learn more about the different colors available.

There are still other activities that preschoolers can surely do. Guiding children at this stage is highly important for their overall growth.

Tips to help kids do well in school


Kids with good support system at home normally perform well in school. We, as parents, can give our kids the learning tools that they need; guidance and proper nourishment to keep up with the demands of a busy school life.

Initially, young kids should be taught the value of time management by setting a regular or fix study hour. Some kids do their assignments right after taking their snacks. Others prefer to study after dinner.

You can invest in school materials like a cute study desk and comfy chair to develop a liking for studies. Make their little corner appealing to them, buy hdmi cables if necessary. Essential school items like dictionary, pencil and paper should be placed within their reach. Distractions such as playing gadgets and computer use should be minimized during regular school days.

Prepare simple yet nutritious food for your kids. Properly nourished kids are more alert and learn better in school.

As for teenage kids like I have, it is the stage when kids are very curious and want to try things out. It is very important to be there for them and let them know how important their studies are.

You should ensure that your kids have a specific space and furniture for their studies. When they perform well, you must reward and praise them for their good deeds. Be patient with them and never compare them with other kids because every child is unique. You can also let them choose a study time that suits them so that they do not have to be pushed around.

Review your teen’s assignments everyday and show interest in their studies by asking them what they learn in school. Ultimately, remember that motivating your kid is not a onetime thing but lasts as long as they are in school.

Teaching our kids and supporting them do well in school be it the preschool in Thornton CO  will give our children the foundation to be successful later in life.

Animation project almost complete


After more than a year of taxing and sleepless nights my daughter and her group will be able to complete their animation thesis. It needs finishing touches especially the details and lightings to the characters and background. The minute detail is so important to the group. A mistake won’t be able to pass the curious members of the defense panel. Like the interior of the house (stone house actually), the animator should be able to include fixtures including a table with a table cloth. Color application and proper lighting would give life to a table cloth similar to premier table linens satin tablecloths – custom.

I’ve seen my daughter work through the night even if she has an exam the following day. She’s that diligent and I believe that her and her group’s hard work will pay off. The next, and I think second to the last defense is set on the third week of January.
