4 year old Luke's preschool is a firm believer in sharing time with our children; so much so, in fact, that several times a year his teacher sends home a Family Coupon Book that contains "coupons," each coupon listing a simple activity we can do with our child just to spend some time with him/her.
I'm listing this month's coupon ideas, because I think it shows how simple it is to share a few minutes of time with our pre-schoolers:
- Make and drink some hot chocolate together
- Make and eat some popcorn together
- Draw a picture together
- Sing a song together
- Play at the park
- Match mittens or socks together
- Bake some cookies (and eat them, too!)
- Write a letter to a friend, and take it to the post office
- Play a game together
- Set the table together
In spite of the crazy, hectic daily schedules we all call our lives, I've found through these coupon ideas that it's really a simple thing to spend some time with our pre-schoolers (oh, and you get to eat a lot, too!).
