8 Practical Ways to Show Affection to Your Preschooler
Here’s a video my almost-3-year-old Theo & I made to share our favorite snuggly and silly things.
These are eight of the fun and easy ways that I practically show affection to my 1-5 year old kiddos, and enter into their little preschool hearts and have fun with them:
- 0:59- #1– zuburts & kisses, “big ones” and “baby ones”
- 1:31- #2- “Practicing Piano”
- 1:45- #3– “Counting Ribs”
- 2:05- #4– “Neck Check!”
- 2:25- #5– “Forebumper, Eyewinker, Nosesmeller, Moutheater, Chinchomper, Gully-gully-gully-gully-gully!”
- 3:35- #6– “Check if your arms work!”
- 4:15- #7– “God Made You So Good!”
- 5:15-5:25- my 5 year old interrupts us
- 6:15- an explanation of boys and #8– “stinky feet”
- 7:00- what ages I do this with, and why
You may already have things like this that you do, so I’m not saying these are better than yours. But a good many of us did not grow up with little brothers and sisters, and don’t always know how to enter into our children’s worlds and interact in ways that are fun and connective. I offer these to you to add to your preschool-snuggle repertoire, or to just confirm that what you’re doing is exactly fine.
Either way, I hope it’s an encouragement to you to LOVE YOUR KIDDOS.
