Talk. Read. Sing. to your little ones

Today’s post is sponsored by First 5 California, but my love for their Talk. Read. Sing. program is all my own!


As a parent to four I know how important those first few years of our baby’s life is especially all those learning moments. I have two little ones who are not in school yet and we spend a lot of time playing, singing and having fun.

Shelby is three and loves to sing. She also loves everything with crafts. I try to spend time with her one on one with preschool activities so she will be ready for school and will be ale to socialize with other kids easily. I have found that with her and having a new baby we have to have a routine.

After the older kids go to school and after Shelby has had her breakfast we sit down and do a few activity pages.


First 5 California has some amazing ideas on Activities you can do with your little ones. Even Mikey being 7 months old I do a lot of activities with him. From playing with toys, to singing. He also has his own cute little books!

I'm going to smack this ball on this book to mKe sound! #6monthsold

    Very important to socialize with your child. I only did a bit of singing, though, had a terrible voice 🙂

    Reading to children is one essential element in child learning. I agree that getting down and playing with the kids is great for their development in many areas as well as communication.
