When cooking, encourage your child to help. For example, if a recipe calls for 3 eggs, ask him or her to get 3 eggs from the fridge. She'll feel like she's helping and counting will help develop her math skills.
Turn chores like laundry into learning activities. Ask your child to identify colors, help you separate lights and darks, or count the number of socks. These activities will help build math and cooperation skills.
Bedtime should follow a schedule. For example, bath, teeth brushing, bedtime story, nightlight, kiss good night and sleep. A consistent schedule helps children learn to go to sleep by themselves.
Turn an errand into a fun learning game that helps your child make sense of the surrounding world. If your child likes trucks, look for trucks as you drive and see who can yell "truck" first.
Connect language to everyday experiences - it helps your baby learn to speak and eventually read better.
