Four Ways To Keep Baby Busy And Avoid Cabin Fever Tantrums

Baby Activities For Cold and Snowy Days

Harsh weather and snow has arrived to many places and with it the challenges of keeping your sanity and keeping your baby engaged, happy and busy when you are trapped indoors.

Just like adults, little ones also need stimulation and sunshine to remain healthy and strong. In some areas of the country outdoorsy activities are no longer an option once the snow hits or days become too short, too windy or too cold. If this is what you are experiencing and cabin fever has you at the end of your mama rope we want to let you know that there is hope. Being indoors does not mean that the fun needs to stop. Grab your baby sign language flash cards, and join us as we take advantage of the versatility of this wonderful teaching resource.

Learn Holiday Baby Signs

Christmas is around the corner and this is a great time to familiarize your baby with signs that are only relevant during the season. Print our most used holiday signs and practice with your baby through the use of signs while learning holiday songs

Play a Match The Card, Sign & Object Scavenger Hunt

Pick 10 cards of objects familiar to your toddler and have him locate the objects around the house. When your baby locates the object repeat the word and guide them through hand modeling as you introduce them to the signs.

Create Card Groupings And Focus on a Theme

We love to introduce our babies to categorizing by sorting the cards by group. We have a stack with animals, one with food items and another one with locations such as kitchen and bathroom. We select a grouping and guide our babies through play dynamics such as guess the sign.

Learn Signs for Extended Family Members

Winter is the time when we visit and get to know our extended family. Take advantage of this opportunity to introduce your baby to signs like aunt, uncle, cousin, nephew etc. Consider posting pictures of different family members and practice the sign combined with the first initial of each family member. This is a fantastic way to learn the alphabet and become familiar with abstract concepts that teach your baby to identify how they relate to others within their family circle.

If you want to go to the next level and keep your child busy while learning and staying stimulated, consider purchasing the Ultra Baby Sign Language Kit which contains numerous resources inclusive of DVDs from the Baby Signing Times Collection a classic you don’t want to miss

Give Your Baby Gifts That Last a Lifetime

Yesterday as I scrolled down my Facebook feed I noticed that many new moms were asking about gift ideas for their baby’s first Christmas. The plethora of options was overwhelming. There are endless toys and gadgets that make the decision-making process overwhelming and on occasion painful.

These conversations led me to email a good friend whose area of expertise is child development. I asked her what types of gifts mattered the most during the early formative years. I was surprised and delighted by her responses. These suggestions make a great deal of sense. Take a moment to review them as you get ready to begin your holiday shopping lists:

Give The Gift of Good Nutrition

The way we relate to food starts early on. Invest in gadgetry and experiences aimed at teaching your baby about food variety and the importance of choices. From beautiful bento boxes to tools aimed at portioning what you do for your kids as far as their relationship to food will set the stage for a successful and healthy life

Give The Gift of Attention

Don’t go looking for gifts that isolate your baby. Instead, search for toys that allow you to engage and communicate making the toy not a means keeping your kid busy but instead a resource to facilitate conversations, didactic progress and person-to-person interactions

Give The Gift of Generosity

Even early on it is essential to teach our babies to give and engage. During the holidays provide your toddlers with two of the same to allow them the opportunity to gift others and experience the joy of sharing and learning to receive gratitude in return

Give The Gift of Learning

Be intentional when selecting toys. Find materials that not only entertain but also serve as learning aids. Introduce your baby to numbers, letters, words, objects and categories. Flash cards, model toys and books are timeless ways to empower your little one in their path to learning.

At we have dedicated the last decade to delivering useful and durable learning materials that have made a world of difference in the lives of thousands of families around the world. We carefully curate our kits to ensure there is something for everyone. Visit our store to learn more or take advantage of all the free printable goodies available on this website.

And when he talks, it sounds like this:

Sarah learned her first 10 signs at six month and it made our lives much easier. Instead of screaming, she could tell us when she was hungry, thirsty, or tired. She learned another 50 signs by nine months and that was a blast. Now she is talking much earlier than the other children in her preschool and we think it is because of her signing.

We can’t imagine missing out on all the little things she shared with baby sign language. Thank You!


Teaching Toddlers Thankfulness Using Baby Sign Language

Regardless of your parenting style we can all agree that manners do matter and are often the key to successful social interactions. We all want to raise pleasant well integrated kiddos whose heart is always in the right place. With this in mind we are all looking for ways to effectively teach abstracts like gratitude, empathy and cordiality.

Thankfulness Is Not a Basic Need

When we teach baby sign language we do it with the main goal of equipping our babies to convey basic needs. It is all about empowerment and making the pre-verbal stage more bearable. The first baby signs that you teach your baby should always be associated to primary needs. Go for the basics and work on those signs until your baby masters them. Once you have a basic foundation you can move to the next stage of learning and begin incorporating abstracts.

Manners Are Best Taught Through Imitation & Repetition

Teaching our babies about thankfulness is all about us. From birth we can instill a culture of gratitude by consistently thanking our baby for appropriate behaviors and thanking others when our baby is watching. Thank your older child for fetching a bottle or a diaper using a sign combined with words and always making sure your voice is full of positivism. Consistent gratitude is contagious. Pass it on!

Use The Signs for Please & Thank You During Meals

Mealtime is a fantastic setting to learn thankfulness. Let your toddler help out and thank him for his helpfulness. Sign please when appropriate and use your thank you sign every time an opportunity arises.

Introduce Thankfulness During Story Time

There are many wonderful books suitable for the first years that tackle manners through storytelling. Babies love to participate in interactive reading. Invite your baby to sign please and thank you when appropriate as your read a story or a poem about gratitude.
