In A Bug's Life

for Toddlers

Today we will enter the beautiful world of caterpillars and snails and learn fun facts about them.

Session Preparation

1. Intro Video

2. Expert Talk:  The Importance of unstructured and imaginative play in the early years

3. Let’s Get Started:​ ​Yoga inspired by butterfly movements was never so much fun!

4. Learning is Fun:  Let’s mould shells for snails using our favourite playdough colours
5. Creative Expression and More: Do you know the story of Little Miss Muffet?

 

  • I attempted to hum the tunes of the songs/rhymes
  • I attempted to babble and pronounce ‘caterpillar’ and ‘butterfly.’
  • I attempted to roll the playdough into a spiral shape.​
How to use this?

This is a development tracker that will help you identify your child’s skill and level of competency. You may want to revisit the KLAY @Home sessions if you think your child needs more time to hone the skills addressed in the sessions.

During Mealtime: Meal and snack times are important times of the day when the entire family can come together and bond. You can use this time to talk about the day, your favourite games food or books. 

You can also offer choices whenever you can to initiate conversation, like “Would you like apple or pear slices?” or “what should we make for dinner /lunch?”​

During the Day: Toddlers love bugs. And what makes it even more exciting is that they are so accessible. No matter where you live, there are always bugs you can find around you. You can talk to your children about how ants are attracted to sweets, how spiders spin a web, how a grasshopper walks with its hind legs, and how a caterpillar turns into a butterfly. You can also show your child pictures of bugs or read to them about it.

Panel Discussion: Together, Apart – Uniting Efforts for Children in the New World Order

With children out of school, physical distancing as the new norm, and children’s rights under threat, the new world order has “turned back the clock” on years of progress made on children’s well-being. However, it’s not all bad. As a human race, we’ve been built to adapt: we’ve seen a tipping point in technology-enabled education and the promise of a new education policy in our country.

What can we, as influencers of change in the education space, do to create a better tomorrow for children? Join us for a panel discussion where we can come together to unite our efforts to secure the future of the nex-gen and create a better tomorrow for children.
