Having plunged into house efforts, do not forget about children. In kitchen - between times - it is possible to find the mass of opportunities for occupations with the kid. All necessary at you near at hand. Think of advantage not only for a stomach, but also for mind!
Mother spends a lot of time in kitchen, and the kid all the time turns under legs. “Go, play, do not disturb“, - usually not without irritation she speaks, missing at the same time a unique opportunity to be engaged with the child in development of his memory, the speech, imagination and perception.
we Develop the speech
- In kitchen the kid gets acquainted with words, new to it: carrots, beet, turnip, broccoli, avocado... Pronounce names accurately and clearly, you are not lazy to repeat several times, and after a while ask the child, “as it is called“.
- Acquaint the child with the generalizing concepts. Investigating the purchases brought from shop explain:“ These are fruit: apples, pears, orange, banana, it is vegetables: beet, onions, potato, carrots“.
- Ask riddles, for example about carrot: “The maiden in a dungeon, and a braid - on the street sits“, “The long red nose on the top grew into the earth“. The child with pleasure will think out riddles also:“ Smooth, orange, long, sweet …“ Remember
- or read fairy tales “Turnip“, “Vershoks and Backs“. Consider together where at vegetables vershoks and where backs. Try to divide products into two groups: what have edible vershoks or inedible.
- Call products, and the child (is more senior than two years) let defines in what words there are sounds “and“, “to“, “m“. At first for it it will be difficult therefore it is necessary to pronounce words accurately (exercise trains phonetic hearing). - Try to obtain that the kid correctly used pretexts. Spread out fruit and vegetables in different places - in a table, on the shelf, under a case. Look for together: “Where carrot?“ - “In the refrigerator“, “Where apples?“ - “On a table“, etc.
- Compare objects:“ This glass is higher, this cucumber is longer, this macaroni is thinner, these candies are more sweet“. You watch that the child correctly formed comparative forms.
we Improve thinking
- Pay attention to the size and a form of products. Ask the kid to spread out small and big or round and oblong products (cucumbers, vegetable marrows, tomatoes, apples) in different baskets.
- Sort vegetables, fruit, berries by color. For example, suggest to select all green or all red. Ask to choose from three vegetables “not green and not brown, not big and not small“. Such occupation will serve for development of logical thinking. Some vegetable or fruit hide
- in a box with an opening in which it is possible to push a hand. Suggest the kid to feel a subject and to try to define what is it, and then to pull out - and to be convinced of correctness of the chosen answer. Deliver to
- before the child several jars, capacities with the closed covers (they have to differ in the size and a form). Suggest to open all jars, and then to close again, having correctly picked up covers. Or give them opened at once - it will complicate a task.
- you Learn to learn taste and a smell of different products. The children who reached certain “skill“ will be able to do it blindly: to guess what of products before them.
- Fill grain in opaque sacks: fill two with peas, two - a semolina, two - haricot, two - large macaroni, fill two cotton wool. Sew up or tie them. The child`s task - to the touch to pick up identical. Show to
- several fruit, then ask the kid to turn away and hide one. Ask what fruit disappeared (good exercise for development of attention and memory). Begin with two objects, then increase their quantity.
It is trained small motility
- Fill in a basin or a big bowl grain - millet, rice or any other. Outline small toys, coins there and show to the kid as they can be looked for and dug out. Put nearby a small box where the child will put the found “treasures“.
- Tell the kid the fairy tale about the Cinderella. Remember how birds helped it to sort grain. Mix two grades of grains, give it two cups and suggest to sort grain.
- Teach the child to sift grain through a sieve. Mix two types of grain, for example rice and a semolina, haricot and a semolina (depending on openings in a sieve). Show separately particles of rice and a semolina. “How to choose from here all rice kernels? It is even difficult for your small and dexterous fingers to make it. But you will be helped by a sieve!“ Explain why so it turns out, having filled in a sieve at first one grain, and then - another. The separation of one grain from another for the child is similar to focus, he can be long enough busy with such business.
- Fill a semolina layer on a baking sheet - the child will be able to draw a finger, to write. Easily stir up, leveling a surface, - “sheet“ pure again. by
- Make to the kid massage of hands by means of a walnut. Tell the tale of how the nut fell down from a tree from wind, and then met children who began to play with it: to hide and find it in a cam (the cam contracts and unclenched); to twist on a roundabout (one palm on another with effort to roll around); to lower from a hill (the hand is pressed to a table by the palm back, forming a hill, other hand to roll a nutlet from finger-tips to a wrist and back). Then it is possible to take for a drive a nut on a table a palm - forward and back as if it the machine. All this to do several times at first one hand, then another. At the end of the game the nutlet hides in “pool“ where instead of water - peas. It is not simple to find it there at all.
- Fine occupation - together to form the dough into figures (the recipe simple: flour, salt, water, little vegetable oil). At will it is possible to add paint or food dye. Dough has to be salty - then the child will not want to taste it. Figures can be painted, decorated with macaroni, grain, buttons, cockleshells.
the imagination and imagination
- Children with pleasure dream. Compose together the fairy tale and a story about different products. For example, while you cook soup, can tell a story about its components: “Five potatoes and carrot decided to swim for a while together in a pan. (By the way what they are colors?) But at first they need to take off top “clothes“ - give, help them? Their friend onions wanted to join too them, but when he began to undress, all around bitterly began to cry“... Suggest the kid to continue the story, looking at your actions at a plate. It is possible to count together vegetables, then to hide one of them and to ask who is not present on the place. Compose
- with the child of a counting rhyme or rhymes, suggesting it to continue the text: “From - for the woods, from - for mountains there was red … a tomato! With it the green good fellow fragrant … a cucumber! Long thick turned on a flank... vegetable marrow. Both for Russian cabbage soup, and for borsches we will buy much... vegetables!“ Involve in game in “sochinyalka“ of the house - let it will become the general cheerful family occupation. Decorate with
- together with the child a table. Display food on a plate in the form of the picture. For example, usual cutlet with French fries can be presented in the form of a cheerful attractive face if to put two circles of a cucumber and ketchup on a plate: from above, in the form of hair with a bang - French fries, below - eyes from cucumber circles, in the middle - cutlet - a nose, from below you draw ketchup a smile. Think up to a mug a name. Suggest the kid to make compositions: a ship from a cucumber or an eggplant, a flower from a garden radish, a shish kebab on a skewer from multi-colored pieces of fruit or vegetables with cheese. Believe, having very little changed the view of cooking and table layout, you will be able to make these affairs cheerful, informative and giving pleasure to all family members. And everything that is done today with loving care and attention, tomorrow - will return a hundredfold.
