Tomorrow, April 21st is Kindergarten Day! In 1837, Friedrich Froebel started the first Kindergarten in Germany. Froebel built the school on the principles of the innate interests and curiosities of children and formatted to the way children learn best; through song and play, arts & crafts and close interaction with nature!
I’m sure you can look back with joy on your early days as a kindergartener! This year, play with the principles Froebel based Kindergarten on- encourage and inspire creativity in your kids through arts & crafts! Once a week, make time to sit down with the family to do an after-dinner-scribble. With one piece of paper, have everyone take turns drawing/coloring/scribbling and add to the picture. Create a story, a scene or try encouraging the family to show something they observed in nature. Have everyone participate and share in giggles as you sit back to look at your finished art!
