Tips for WN Activity Success!

1.       Start small.  Pick one activity to try out.  Something that you think is fun and in your comfort zone. 
2.      Spread out the fun!!  Don’t plan to do everything in a day or even in consecutive days.  A good place to start is picking one day a week.  This gives you ample time to prep, implement, and clean up!  It also gives you time to have to reschedule. 
3.      Timing is EVERYTHING! Pick a day and time that works for you and your little ones. 
4.      Be Flexible!  Sometimes the perfect day and time just doesn’t work out.  Teething, work demands, illness, any number of things can derail the best laid plans.  Plan for back up times so you don’t feel like giving up entirely.
5.      Breathe!  It’s playtime! Remember the most important thing is that you and your little one are having FUN!!  If you stress … it takes the fun out of it for everyone. 
6.      Build the excitement!  Talk to your little one about how excited you are to get to play with them no matter how small they are.  It not only helps them know what coming but it helps you get jazzed for the experience!
