    The clean up song always helps the kids put away toys in a timely manner. I also bring out the step stool to the changing table and sink so they can feel more independent and notice the routine for diaper changes/ hand washing. We also hold hands and do a march/ “dinosaur chant” when we head anywhere out of the classroom.

    You can make healthy habits fun for kids by creating a game out of it, singing songs while doing it and doing the habits together.

    Singing can help make healthy habits fun. Also, making it a group activity could help make it more fun and interactive.

    you make healthy habits fun. you could create a game or song or even dance. Show the child that you are doing it as well. children learn by copying and if they see you doing something most likely they will want to do it too.

    to turn habits into pleasure, you need to come up with them in a playful way or make a competition. Children love to play and compete with their peers

    Kids loves games. So if you turn everything into a game, their routines will become fun for them and easier for you.

      Games are a great method to create healthy habits. Be sure to let your students make a few of their own choices within the appropriate options.
