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
For teachers looking to build a well-rounded curriculum, Gryphon House authors have used their science and early childhood education expertise to develop more thoughtful science experiments for kids and toddlers. Our collection of experiments helps to encourage children to grow into young investigators through hands-on exploration exercises. For younger children, our preschool science experiments offer avenues to leverage children’s curiosity and energy. Through these exploration activities, children learn investigative concepts by moving around, and through traditional observation.
By using active, engaging science activities, children are encouraged to experiment, discover, and analyze. With Gryphon House’s books and free resources, educators can integrate STEM methods into daily or weekly activities. Our available resources also lead parents through easy to follow science activities for toddlers, in order to help foster their child’s continued science education at home. Take advantage of children’s natural curiosity through our free, hands-on science activities. Our explorations cultivate young minds by encouraging children to question and explore their surroundings.
