Movement activities for young children help to enrich and develop motor skills, cognitive skills, and social skills by improving blood and oxygen flow—which aids in cerebral development and brain function. Gryphon House Publishing’s activities focus on keeping children of all ages engaged and active in order to continually explore their world, and learn to fully express themselves by showcasing their unique personalities.

Who hasn’t fantasized about finding buried treasure? The joy of discovery, the mystery of a new and valuable item? What’s not to want?! And children are no exception. Treasure boxes offer children lots of new items to explore and discover, helping them build important sensory skills while letting them stretch their curiosity. The best part? Even the simplest items can be treasures to young children; plastic beads, bits of fabric, simple shakers—everything is invaluable to a little learner!
Children start developing eating habits right away. From the time they get teeth and begin to eat solid foods, children already have a pattern to their mealtimes and are beginning to determine what foods they like and dislike. This is why it’s so important to teach nutrition early! With the right teaching, children can learn how to choose healthy foods and determine what their body needs to feel good, making it easier to continue those healthy habits in adulthood.Cooking
People talk a lot about being brave, whether that means doing things that are exciting or dangerous, speaking out against things we dislike, or helping others (and ourselves) in difficult situations. Young children think about being brave as well.Lesson Planning
