    Get Thanksgiving-Ready Using These Techniques for Teaching Kids Table Manners

    Last updated 14 hours ago

    With the holidays rapidly approaching, now is the time to prepare your kids for Thanksgiving. Whether you are hosting the holiday or going to someone else’s house, use the following tips to teach your kids proper table manners:

    Remind them to Say, “Please” and “Thank You”
    Even if your children are very young, they can still learn how to say “please” and “thank you” as they sit at the table. You should practice saying these words every night at your family dinner so they start to get used to the habit of doing it. The more that you use these words around your children, the easier it will be for them to start remembering to use them on their own.

    Teach them How to Sit Still
    When any child wiggles or moves around at the dinner table, it might inspire the other children to start doing it too. A few weeks before Thanksgiving, you should start working with your kids to keep them from wiggling during their holiday meal. You might want to make a game out of it by offering a small prize like a sticker for the kids that are able to sit still the longest.

    Encourage them to Eat with their Mouths Closed
    Children tend to over exaggerate the chewing motion when they eat. Spend some time encouraging them to eat with their mouths closed so the rest of the Thanksgiving party does not have to look at what they are chewing. You can show the kids the difference between chewing with an open mouth and a closed mouth so they understand why it is important to do it.

    Tips for Packing Your Kids' Bags for Holiday Travel

    Last updated 3 days ago

    If you are planning to travel with your kids this holiday season, it is important to pack well so you have everything you need to keep the kids entertained throughout the trip.

    Be sure to pack some toys that can keep your kids busy while you travel. Do not bring toys that make noise or look like weapons, though, or you might have trouble going through airport security. If you have a baby, you should only bring a handful of diapers and buy the rest when you get to your destination. Check out this video for more tips on what to pack.

    Tips for Helping Your Kids Stay Healthy this School Year

    Last updated 17 days ago

    Children are notorious carriers of germs. Once a child gets sick, his or her classmates usually follow. Use this guide to learn how to keep your children healthy even when they spend time with other kids in preschool and daycare programs:

    Stay Current on Immunizations
    Getting your kids immunized can help boost their immune systems enough to fight off certain illnesses. Talk to the doctor to find out if there are any shots that your kids should get before they start daycare or preschool. You should also make sure everyone in your family gets a flu shot. 

    Teach Your Kids How to Wash their Hands
    Soap and water are great defenses against germs. Show your kids the proper way to wash their hands so they can avoid spreading germs. Children should wash their hands with soap and water after using the bathroom or after they touch something that might have germs. Show your children how to saturate their hands with soap and explain that they should keep washing their hands for about 20 seconds.

    Feed them a Healthy Diet
    Proper nutrition can help your kids fight off illnesses. You should make an effort to give your kids a lot of vitamin D to help them ward off sickness. Fatty fish and fortified milk are good sources of this vitamin, which can help the body fight against bacteria and viruses. Fiber is a nutrient that helps the immune system combat bacterial infections. Wheat, grains, nuts, and leafy greens are good sources of fiber. Fruits like oranges with vitamin C can also help your kids fight off colds.

    Children’s Learning Adventure has some of the best childcare, preschool, and after-school care programs to help your kids gain confidence and independence in their ability to learn. We create an environment where your kids can feel free to be kids. To learn more about our programs, visit us online or call (888) 674-1487.
