Playing Barefoot

☀️🦶🏾🦶🏼Playing Barefoot 🦶🏼🦶🏾☀️

It’s perhaps the easiest and most cost-effective form of sensory play! Walking barefoot strengthens the muscles in children’s feet and ankles, improving balance and posture. It engages the feet’s arches, strengthening them, and improves the alignment of muscles throughout the legs.

When was the last time your children went barefoot outside? When was the last time you did?

Social Skills

🧸Why are social skills important?🧸

Social skills are vital in enabling children to have and maintain positive interactions with others. Many of these skills are crucial in making and sustaining friendships.

It is also important for children to have ’empathy’ (i.e. being able to put yourself into someone else’s shoes and recognise their feelings) as it allows them to respond in an understanding and caring way to how others are feeling.

What are the building blocks necessary to develop social skills?

🧸 Attention and concentration: Sustained effort, doing activities without distraction and being able to hold that effort long enough to get the task done.
🧸 Expressive (using) language: The use of language through speech, sign or alternative forms of communication to communicate wants, needs, thoughts and ideas.
🧸 Play skills: Voluntary engagement in self motivated activities that are normally associated with pleasure and enjoyment where the activities may be, but are not necessarily, goal oriented.
🧸 Pre-language skills: The ways in which we communicate without using words and include things such as gestures, facial expressions, imitation, joint attention and eye-contact.
🧸 Self regulation: The ability to obtain, maintain and change one’s emotion, behaviour, attention and activity level appropriate for a task or situation in a socially acceptable manner.

Studying the Bible with your child

✝️ We all know that it’s best to lead by example, and we are the example that our kids will mimic the most.

By reading the Bible to our kids every day, we show them that we place great importance on the Scriptures.

Here are a few examples of how to study the Bible with your children:
