7 Everyday Activities That Can Become Teachable Moments For Toddlers

Before I was a mama and a writer and a wardrobe stylist I was a preschool teacher. I have a degree in Child and Family Development and spent nearly a decade working alongside children and families in various capacities before following a different path. Even though I don’t have a career working with children anymore, I still use a lot of my training and education as a parent. One technique that has stuck with me and that I continue to use with my own daughter is the idea of teaching through everyday moments (AKA “teachable moments”). Once you become more aware of these moments on a daily basis, you’ll be able to find ways to help your little one learn and grow in a way that is fun for the both of you and that doesn’t require flash cards. This is the type of learning that truly makes a lasting impression and it’s never too early to start. Here are a few ways I sneak teachable moments into the everyday with my little one. Maybe a few of them will help to inspire you!

15 Fun Activities For Toddlers and Their Not-So-Pinteresty Parents

I will be the first to admit that I am not a Pinterest mom. Of course I love to pin lovely things and clever ideas as much as the next mama, but my follow-through definitely leaves something to be desired. The fact is, I’m just not particularly crafty, I don’t love to cook and I detest activities that require a ton of supplies, prep and clean-up. I guess I’m just a minimalist like that. Thankfully my daughter has a grandma who is really into craftiness so she can go over there and make a crafty mess to her heart’s content, but it’s just not my thing. That doesn’t mean we don’t still do fun activities together though! These activities are a few that we love around here and that require little to no supplies or skill. My favorite kind of activity!
