Preschooler Tips

by Andrea McCorriston
(Miami, Qld, Australia)

Andrea has sent us in two very cute preschooler tips to use with your children.

Magic Fairy Cream

If your little child has a sore tummy, ankle, arm or a bump just put some 'Magic Fairy Cream' on it.

Simply mix some glitter into your normal (and child friendly) moisturizer and there you have it!

Don't use this on any broken skin areas of course.

Bed Time Trick

If your toddler doesn't want to go to bed because he/she has a 'sore tummy' - just put a band-aid on it and send them off to bed ... because, you know, a band-aid fixes everything!

Magic Kisses

Annie's Reply:
I love your fairy cream Andrea, that is a great idea! And of course there are so many child orientated band-aids now - all the more magical!

Your ideas made me remember our kissing game - never underestimate the power of Mommy kisses! We used to have a whole range of magic kisses to fix up bumps and knocks.

I used to ask which kiss they needed to feel better - and of course mostly we needed to go through the whole range, ending in monster kisses which cause lots of giggles.

Butterfly kisses are when you flutter your eyelashes against their cheek.

Pixie kisses are tiny little feathery kisses whilst making tiny pixie noises a bit nibbly yummy!

And monster kisses are gobbly tickly wet lip smacking kisses - particularly around their neck or tummy to tickle! Shrieks of laughter with these and a bump or scrape is soon forgotten!

Thanks for your great tips for preschoolers Andrea - feel free to send in more if have them!

Click N Kids would have to be one of my subscribers most popular programs, and from what they say, it is mostly because the kids have fun while they are learning. In fact they don't even realize they are learning! Click N kids are using the Looney Tune Characters now in their phonics program, which of course kids just love.
