It can be a simple toy, a favorite picture or anything that your child adores. This will make him keep trying for the activity and achieve success in it.
- Learning via Game
Children love games! Whether it is a simple game of running around or an aabra ka daabra magic, they are always more interested in playing it. So, make learning fun via games. You can hide the alphabets or numbers in a box…and pretend of doing magic and ask the child to guess what number or alphabet comes out of it! This way, they will not just learn but also be eager to do it again.
- Make it a Competition
Kids love competition! Seeing the others perform better, they push themselves to do better things. So, if you have other kids around, include them in activities to make learning FUN and competitive. You may do this to even make your child eat his meal properly. Seeing others eat, he/ she will also eat well.

A casio can help your kid learn to sing, a drum can help improve the hand grip and movements of your child, choosing alphabet puzzle is also a way to teach A-Z to your kid.

Cartoons are a big NO NO for kids. But, if it is something educational, like a show that teaches your kid manners, it is worth a watch.
