#2 I love drinking water – How much should I drink?
Drinking stations are essential for keeping kids hydrated, especially during hot summer days. These stations, whether at home or school, encourage children to drink water regularly between activities.
Water is crucial for maintaining a child’s overall health and wellness. Here are some quick tips and benefits of drinking water!
- Children should drink 6-8 glasses of fluid a day, depending on their age, weight, activity level, and weather conditions.
- Drinking water has many benefits for children, including keeping their body temperature normal, aiding in digestion and waste removal, and helping with cognitive function.
- Proper hydration is key to helping your child avoid heat-related illness and other health complications.
At home, a drinking station can be as simple as a designated area for children to pour their own water or a more elaborate Montessori Water Station. These stations not only promote independence but also improve children’s self-care skills. So, don’t forget to keep your child hydrated and healthy!
#3 How to plan together with kids?
If kids can learn how to play games, they surely can plan too. They can be taught how to be responsible and take ownership of small tasks.
By using a habit tracker planner or sticker reward chart, make sure to reward young kids and be generous with praise.
Good habits start young, so make sure you are planning together with your child and following through!
