It’s the Little Things that Count

Showing Your Child Love is Easy with These Wow Factory Tips

Children aren’t always easy to please. As parents we know it’s our duties to ensure our babies have a happy childhood. Kids don’t always require expensive trips, toys, and items to give them joy. Sometimes it’s the little things that count, and in this article, we’ll give you some ideas that will not only surprise your child, but it’ll also put a smile on your face as well.

Tip 1.) The Day of your child’s birthday, use a washable paint marker and write on the mirror before they hit the bathroom. This little surprise sets the pace for their whole day, and it will put them in a festive mood first thing in the morning.

Tip 2.) Leave a note in their lunchbox or book bag. When kids are at a reading level, they need to have positive reinforcements. By writing them a note with a nice quote or an expression of your love for them, you’ll be teaching your child to be thoughtful or maybe even more!

Tip 3.) Introduce new activities such as sports, dance or art. Children need to have their minds always stimulated. Learning new skills or developing their cultural side can lend to a lifetime of benefits. Don’t hesitate to ask them what they want to do before signing them up to something they may not have any interest. By exposing your child to adventures, you’re giving them the memories that are everlasting.

Tip 4.) Treat your child to a day at the spa. Kids love to be pampered and spoiled. Even babies benefit from massage therapy. Look for Groupon to local resorts that offer child services and book a day to hang out with them in this gratifying environment.

Tip 5.) Take a walk with your kids. Whether you hit the nearest hiking trail or you decide to stroll around the block, walking is a real asset for both. Not only does walking promote good health, but it’s also an excellent way to clear stress and opens discussions necessary for a healthy kid-parent relationship.

In reality, your kids are looking for attention from you as a parent. By taking the time to do something out of the norm, you re-kindle your special bond. The best part is these things take very little time, effort and are affordable for everyone. When it comes to the little things that count, the little things ARE your kids! Now make it a good day!

Cooking With The Kids

One of the most fun and educational experiences you can enjoy with your children is cooking. Not only are you teaching them how to feed themselves (which is one of the most important life skills); you are also spending quality time with them and allowing them to learn important skills such as measurement, timing, patience, and self-control. The best way to make your kids enjoy cooking with you is to make it a fun activity; they might lose interest if they feel like they are performing a chore. Here are some tips on how to cook with your kids.

  1. Teach them kitchen safety

Even for adults, the kitchen is one of the most dangerous rooms in the households. When introducing your children to cooking, the first step that you should take is to teach them kitchen safety. Ensure that they understand that they are working with sharp objects and fire. If a child is too young to understand kitchen safety, then they are probably too young to participate in cooking. If you are using gas to cook then your children need to know how to safely turn your cooker on and off. Ensure that they understand the smell of a gas leak and drill them on how to react to it. As an additional precaution, you should teach them how to put out grease fires, and possibly, how to perform first aid on small burns and cuts. You should only proceed once everybody is aware of how to keep themselves, and others, safe in the kitchen.

  1. Cook what they like

Every child has a favorite meal, and one of the best ways to get children interested in cooking (at least in the early stages) is to teach them how to cook their favorite meal. If your children love cookies, then you should introduce them to cooking by teaching them how to bake cookies. By learning how to make their favorite meals, they will be more interested in improving their cooking skills.

  1. Introduce them to healthy meal options

Once they grow up, your children are more likely to cook the food items that you taught them to cook. Therefore, take this opportunity to introduce them to healthier meal options. Incorporate vegetables, white meats, and other healthy food items into your cooking lessons. Teach them how to make simple salads or healthy pasta dishes, and educate them on the benefits of healthy eating. Not only will they save money by cooking for themselves, they will lead much healthier lives too.

  1. Don’t be too serious

Ensure that your children have fun in the kitchen. If you take your joint cooking sessions too seriously, you might negatively affect their enthusiasm to learn how to cook. When your child makes a mistake they should not be scolded, show them what went wrong and encourage them to try again. Children are very sensitive to negative feedback, especially if they were not initially enthusiastic about the activity. Make it a fun experience and your kids will learn an important life skill.
