Keeping children busy with progressive and productive activities helps to build cognitive skills, memory, and overall learning habits. When and if a young child “likes” a game or book, they can spend hours repeating the game.
This is a good thing. It helps to lower the cost of keeping them busy and enables the parent to have more quiet time.
Preschool teachers have known and used this secret for decades. Find what children love and make it available to them when you need downtime to rebuild your energy or just to take a deep breath. The learning tools, games, exercises, and activity books on this page are popular recommendations to help improve your preschoolers’ learning habits AND give you more quiet time around the house.
