Nurturing Children's Health During Winter: A Guide to Safe and Enjoyable Cold Weather Activities

As winter approaches and temperatures plummet, it's essential to strike a balance between outdoor enjoyment and safeguarding the well-being of our little ones. While the cold season brings many a sense of joy, it also brings potential health risks, especially for children. Here are some practical tips to ensure your kids stay healthy and happy during winter.

1. Limit Outdoor Travel for Toddlers

Minimize outdoor excursions with toddlers during the
winter months. The harsh cold can be challenging for their delicate systems. Opt for indoor activities and playdates to reduce exposure to the chilly weather.

2. Embrace the Warmth

Distinguish between hot and warm. Ensure your children are appropriately dressed in layers to maintain a comfortable body temperature. Dressing them warmly is crucial for their well-being in colder weather.

3. Nourish with Healthy Foods

Provide a well-balanced diet rich in nutrients to fuel your children's bodies during the winter. The cold season demands more energy, and a nutritious diet helps strengthen their immune systems.

4. Shield from the Elements

Protect your child's ears from biting winds by using hats or earmuffs. Additionally, promptly dry them after baths, avoiding exposure to fans immediately afterward.

5. Warm Soups for Comfort

Introduce a variety of soups to their diet. Not only do they keep your children warm, but they also contribute to their overall health. Homemade remedies such as tulsi leaves with honey or turmeric milk can work wonders.

6. Prioritize Sleep

Ensure your children get sufficient sleep, especially during winter. Longer sleep times contribute to a healthier immune system. Establish a consistent bedtime routine to promote good sleep habits.

7. Layer up on Socks

Keep their feet warm by adding an extra layer of socks, especially when sending them to school. Cold feet can contribute to discomfort and susceptibility to illnesses.

8. Positive Winter Vibes

Encourage a positive outlook on winter by allowing children to enjoy the season's festivities. Avoid instilling a fear of the cold by refraining from repeatedly saying, "If you do this, you'll catch a cold." Instead, focus on the fun aspects of winter.

9. Home Remedies for Wellness

Incorporate safe and time-tested home remedies into your winter routine. Tulsi leaves with honey and turmeric milk are excellent choices for bolstering your child's immune system without side effects.

10. Embrace the Season

Look forward to the wonders that winter brings. Strike a balance between safeguarding your children's health and enjoying the crisp, refreshing weather. By following these tips, you can create a winter experience that is both safe and enjoyable for your little ones.

Daycare - A Home With Friends

 Today, daycare is a necessity for most working parents. Some of them go through severe guilt, especially if the child is unwilling to stay in daycare and they have to force the child to stay back. 

@ My Giggle Garden, we create a lively environment for the children so they don't feel reluctant to come over. Many of our children do not miss the center when the parents have a day off. One of the main reasons for their happy participation in our daycare is the friendship and camaraderie they have developed with other children and the staff. The bond they share is so beautiful and precious. Our daycare has become a home with their friends for many children. I feel so happy that the parents are at ease knowing that their children are safe and happy when they are working hard to secure their children's future.

Color Sorting

This is a simple color sorting activity for your child. You can use anything you have at home to teach the child to identify colors around them.

Even though this appears to be a very simple concept to learn, children have difficulty identifying different colors and remembering their names. Sometimes they can identify the red in crayon but not in their dress. Giving children different objects around their home will help them identify colors in real usable objects in their own tiny world.

Buttoning Skill

Fine motor movements play crucial role in child development. The child finds buttoning a very challenging task at first, but, when they finally succeed in doing it, a sense of achievement gives them a huge boost in confidence. It is very easy to give this activity to child. Any old shirts available at home can be used for this activity.

Education shouldn't be only about reading, writing or Math. It should involve overall development of the child - physically, emotionally, intellectually and socially.

International Tiger Day - 29th July 2023

We celebrated International Tiger Day @ My Giggle Garden, Preschool and Daycare. Punyakoti is a very famous song in Karnataka. It has unfortunately made most of the children hate tigers. Let us make them good about majestic beast once again.

Our little Tigers on International Tiger Day. This is celebrated annually on July 29. The tiger enjoys the reputation of being the largest of the world’s big cats. A tiger can be easily identified with its distinctive orange and black stripes on its face and body. International Tiger Day is celebrated across the globe so that all of us can raise awareness for tiger conservation. The day aims to build a worldwide system that will be dedicated to protecting tigers and their natural habitats. A safe and thriving habitat for tigers means that we conserve other species and our forests, too. Through International Tiger Day we can work for a future where humans and tigers can cohabit peacefully.
