[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Nursery
Rhymes
[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][/FONT][FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Reciting nursery rhymes to young children
helps improve their language and memory, and develops important rhythmic
patterns.[/FONT]


[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Children love songs with repetitive action - like this one, where
you touch the parts of the baby's body as you name
them:
[/FONT][FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Head, shoulders, knees and toes,
knees and toes,
Two eyes, two ears, a mouth and a nose;
[/FONT]


[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]As the baby gets older you can
recite 'One two buckle my shoe' as you climb the stairs, particularly once your
baby starts walking. Also sing rhymes like 'Baa baa black sheep' - and when you
get to the 'three bags full' hold up three fingers, then bend down one finger at
a time as you 'distribute' the bags.[/FONT]


[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]As you recite the rhymes, you can
start talking to the child about the animals or objects being mentioned in the
rhymes. For example, talk about the wool together, how it is shorn off the sheep
and what happens next. Find a woollen garment for your child to
feel.

[/TABLE]

[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Each of these bags
has a different magnifying strength. The children can use these bags to magnify
things around the house, such as fine print in books. They can even do the
Fingerprints activity. These magnifiers are also useful when children are
exploring flowers and insects.

Flower Printing - how to make print on flowers


Small flowers and leaves
2 Waxed or grease proof papers
Iron


1. Arrange the flowers on the waxed paper.


2. Place another sheet of waxed paper on top.


3. Iron carefully with a slightly cool iron. The wax in the paper will bind together and seal the flowers inside.


You can start out by going for a walk with the children. Help them pick flowers and leaves for
this activity.

This will help the children appreciate nature

Getting Creative


Spend some time with your child, and enhance his creative instincts.


Here's a great, funky costume that you can make with your kids. And which kid wouldn't enjoy colouring his clothes with a marker! There's no limit but your imagination, so let it run wild!


You will need:


An old pillowcase
Permanent markers in various colours
A 'naada' or string
Colourful pieces of fabric


Method:


Take a pillowcase and cut a hole at the stitched end, so your child's head can go through it. Alternatively, let your child's head remain in the pillowcase - just cut two holes for the eyes. Cut holes in the corners as well, for arms. Take a permanent marker and make some interesting designs. Or, take other pieces of cloth and staple or stick them on to the costume.


Sew the bottom of the pillowcase so that you can run a cord through it. Pull the strings of the cord together, so it gives a gathered effect at the bottom.


It's a perfect costume for your child to wear at a fancy dress party, or a party with a spooky theme!

Bottle painting



Wash an old bottle well, and let it dry. Once dried, paint a scenery or any design on it.

You could also fill it up a few large blobs of different coloured oil paints mixed with kerosene.

Add some water and shake it around, to produce the marble-like effect.

Pour out the water, and leave it to dry overnight. The next day, call your electrician and ask him to have it fitted with a bulb.

Get it fitted with a little lampshade, and you have an excellent lamp for the kids' room!

Candle colouring


Take a candle and rub it over a sheet of paper.

Make a rough drawing with the candle: a house, flower, birds, mountain..

Using light strokes with different colour pencils or with watercolours, shade the entire sheet of paper.

Watch the candle-sketch emerge! Alternatively, light a candle and let the wax drip onto your paper, forming dots, lines or any other design.
When the wax has hardened, paint over the sheet with water paints.

After the paint dries, peel out the wax.

Wax, as you know is waterproof. Thus, the area that had been covered with wax will still be white (or the colour of the paper).

Block printing


Block printing are designs made from a stamp, which are repeated again and again, in a regular pattern.

You could do this with the help of a potato. Yes, a potato makes an excellent block.

Cut a potato in half.


Cut out the potato so that it forms the stamp of a flower.
Dip the potato in paint and stamp it neatly on a clean sheet of paper.

Repeat the stamp right next to it, to form a row of flowers. Do this for the entire page. If you want, you could alternate two blocks.
