The Four Pillars Of A Preschooler’s Life
You know the old saying: to a child, LOVE spells T-I-M-E? It’s so true, isn’t it?
But it’s quality time!
My little ones feel most loved when we are having wiggle time, learning time, giggle time, and fun time of some sort.
Wiggle time: dance, jump, stomp, or have a calming stretch break.
Giggle time: watch a silly show, sing a silly song, and just be silly together.
Learning time: read together, watch educational shows together, and discuss the life lessons learned.
Fun time: schedule time for fun, whether it’s playing with toys or using your imagination, take a break from it all to just enjoy each other.
We are so grateful to Disney Junior for these magical experiences and we invite you to join in the fun with your little ones.
