Every parent wants to provide their children with a perfect environment to grow in. Home is the first place where a child begins his/her education. Family plays a key role in this journey. It is home where a child develops his/her cognitive skills and learns new things in their every step.
Hence parents want to provide them with proper educational materials. But most of the time, parents are unaware of how to decorate their child’s room, or how to make an environment learning-friendly.
As a child learns from each of his/her steps, my blog will provide their parents with five amazing and easily applicable ideas to help their child grow up. Also, which materials should be chosen for developing the cognitive skills of toddlers from five to eight years old.
1.Keep it Tidy and Needful :
When a newborn arrives, every parent wants to give their baby a perfectly decorated room that the baby can enjoy. Yet, parents always forget that a little innocent newborn does not understand materialism. It only wants to observe everything from the very early stage. Hence, parents need to build a needful room environment with minimal items. Kids love a tidy, clean, simple environment where everything should be within the reach of their hands and where they can grow their cognitive, as well as imaginative skills. Let that curious little creature observe the world by its creative perception.
2. Necessity over Quantity:
No one likes messy floors Right? But kids’ room has to be messy because they play and forget. As a mother, I believe creative minds need more space to think. Though kids don’t understand these words. So it’s our job to maximize necessity over quantity. From birth to becoming toddlers, they grow so fast; which is the reason, new mothers face so many obstacles to measure how many clothes, footwear, jumpsuits, rockers, etc they need to spend on. Every mother loves to buy toys for their kids, but after one or two times of play, kids unintentionally lost interest in them. I’m sure every mother who is reading this blog right now, can relate to it. I understand this is so frustrating, hence the solution is: controling your mother’s emotions during those moments, and focus on necessity over quantity. And for that, one should do the following:
3. Create a colorful wonderland:
We all know kids respond to colors. But do you know that many kids are scared of some colors? This condition is known as heterochromia iris, which is when various colors appear within the iris of a single eye. This can cause blindness. Thus, it’s important to introduce your child to colors from a very early age and the children’s room is the perfect place to decorate it with various colors, to create a wonderland for your little Einstein. Use bright colors, such as blue, green, yellow, pink, and purple. Also, colorful wallpapers can be added, as it gives a kid’s room an innovative style.
4. Organize Room with Meaningful Play and Tools:
Kids love anything and everything that attracts them. They cannot decide which one is good for them and which is not. So it’s our responsibility as parents to present them with a perfectly organized meaningful play materials, such as small wooden Montessori blocks, colorful flashcards, real-touch animal props, Tangram, Busy Book, etc. For outdoor play, we can also arrange a slide in the garden, Jumper, or can have fun with water in the swimming tub. Every child loves to do activities, and play the games related to their daily life. Hence choosing the perfect tool game equipment for them is so important. So that, they learn with those games and be positively active.
5. Bookshelf for Elegance ;
In this digital era, many toddlers cannot comprehend the value of reading books. So, they need to introduced to books from an early age. Parents should decore their kids’ room with various picture books, story books, cards, painting boards, Scatch books, etc.
To organize the books, parents can buy a beautiful bookshelf for the kids’ room. This will transform the kid’s room into an elegant yet smart haven for the kid. Also, kids can easily take books out of the bookshelf to read and put them back whenever they wish.
In this blog, I want to encourage parents to focus on kids’ meaningful learning over a materialistic lifestyle.
A perfect kid’s room should be motivational, active, and environment friendly, where a compassionate mind and creativity can be developed. And these cannot be found in the materialistic or even in the digital equipment.
