Guide for Parents

Read through the activity and get familiar with it before preparing and starting the activity with your child

Have a look at what material and equipment you need for the activity and prepare them all with your child before you start the activity. For example, if you’re crafting, cover the table with tablecloth and put on an apron for you and your child. Or if you’re going to have a physical activity make sure that there is enough space around and the environment is safe for your child. Finally, make sure that you’ve all the materials and equipment you need.

Tell your child what are you going to do and get inspired together by going through the activity together

Take photos during the activity to make the learning process more visible. It also helps you child to memorize and view the activity afterwards. It’s also fun to have a look at the pictures later on.

Encourage your child to learn new things and give positive feedback. Let your child try new things her- or himself and take a step back from time to time. As a parent you guide your child and pay attention to your child’s initiatives. If your child gets an idea which is not in the activity flow, go for it! Supporting the ideas and initiatives of your child enables more learning opportunities and your child is more engaged in the activities. It’s ok to take different directions during the activity and important to take into account the creativity of your child.

After finishing the activity, tidy up with your child together and put materials and equipment back to their places together

If possible, after the activity think together with your child how she/he can continue playing according to the theme of the project or the activity. For example, if you’ve just finished planting a seed and taking care of it, proceed playing with soft toys and take care of them in a play.
