The time that you spend with your little one is very precious and special for you. But what if the same time can be made more engaging for your kid where he/she can have fun and also learn. Did you say it is too early!
Why Start Early?
Research says that 80% of the brain develops in the first three years of age. This is the best phase for your child's intellectual growth. So what are you waiting for! Let's start now. Based on my experience as a teacher and education expert, I have come to believe that just spending 30 minutes of your precious time daily in a meaningful way can go a long way in preparing your child for the challenges in future.
How Does Your Child Develop?
'30 Minutes With Appy' programme will help your child grow in 4 areas and hence lead to an overall holistic development. But first understanding how your child develops will help you to guide him/her properly. Here is a brief description about it:
Here's What You Need To Do
Step 1: Watch a Video
Each month there will be some specific themes e.g. themes for month 1 will be Numbers, Alphabets, Myself & My family and Colours. A few videos will be suggested under each theme that you should show to your child. These video suggestions will be based on learning objectives that are suitable to this age group. You may subscribe to our newsletter to get a structured learning & developmental plan for your 2-3 year old on you inbox every week.
Step 2: Perform an activity
Do a small activity along with your child after watching the suggested video(s). These activities has been designed keeping four domains of development in mind. You will find suggested activities in our blogs for 2-3 year old kids each week.
Step 3: Repeat the activity
Repeat the same weekly activity or previously suggested activities throughout the a given week. Remember repetition is the key. More you repeat the videos and activities, more it will reinforce the concept. If your child seems to be disinterested, frustrated or inattentive, please stop the activity.

Activity for your 2-3 year old this week: Learning Colours
Learning Outcome: Identifying Primary Colours
Suggested activities with your child:
1. Colour Rhyme
Show rhymes/videos related to colours to your child. Ask your child to repeat the name of the colour along with video. Again show him/her same video without audio. Ask him/her to name the colours that they can see in the video.
2. Finger paint
Kids love finger painting! Finger painting is simply painting with fingers where instead of using a brush, a child dips his or her fingers into a pot or jar of finger paint. Try this with your kid and keep these imprint of your little one as treasure! Remember to introduce one colour at a time.
3. I Spy
Play "I Spy" around your house and let your child find objects with different colours. Or make your own "I Spy" book. Cut out pictures from magazines or books and glue them on the pages. Then flip through the book and let your child pick out the different coloured items. E.g. Put your finger on the object that is red in colour
4. Colours Treasure hunt games
Fill a bucket with sand/Rough Paper/Cotton and conceal different coloured objects in it. Name a colour and then ask your child to dig the bucket to find the right object.
5. Colour of the day
Assign a colour to a day. E.g. Have Monday as yellow day. Now try to show yellow to your kid everywhere. Show them yellow fruit, yellow food. Give them yellow colour to wear.
6. Play Dough
Playing dough is very good for developing fine motor skill of your child. Introduce child safe dough to your child. Give him/her one colour at a time and keep saying the colour of the dough. E.g. Baby. Here is your yellow dough. Make a nice model using yellow dough.
