  • Thats a lovely post on improving motor skills Indu. There are many online games of matching the shapes and all and with a touchpadf or laptop, it is great to use. I tried it with my grandson and he loved them.

  • The ideas shared are quite interesting to engage children during home. However, I would like to share one thing that please let the child do the activity of fixing nuts and bolts in strict supervision of guardian. I am not discouraging this point but just want to ensure the safety of children as kids might take those stuffs in their mouth or nose and that is not safe.

  • wow. such quick and easy ways to engage kids at home. not just 3-4 years..m sure my almost 5 yr old son would also love them and he will be engaged for sometime before i can finish off the work in these home quarrantine days.
