My daughter loves to look at photographs, remembers summer vacations in winter, this develops her memory, and does not allow her beloved grandmother to be forgotten. As a rule, we take photographs of the rest before leaving home and consider them on the way back. Both the impressions are fresh and the occupation is interesting – the more photographs, the longer the child is busy.
On the train you can give a boiled egg to peel – my very daughter loves. You can also take a soft toy (a bear, for example), cut a circle the size of an apple on your stomach (pope, wherever you want) to pull out the filler, and instead stick the colorful shreds of fabric sewn with a ribbon of different structure). , hole in the bear close. Then the child ‘opens’ the bear and takes out, like a magician, rags and examines them.
My daughter is 2 years old. We take a toy with us and “take care” of it – we read books to a child and a toy, give food, drink, sing songs, show what is outside the window.
If you have to sit for a long time – we play kalyaki (my son draws a kalyak, I finish, then vice versa), sea battle, the gallows, tic-tac-toe. We draw stories in pictures: I ask the characters, then the child thinks what happens to them, and I quickly draw – something like a comic book. In the car, if we drive far, far – we are looking for who will find more funny names, signs, advertisements. If there is, where to go (in the train corridor, for example) – you can walk – like an old woman, like a model, like a sick raccoon …
We have one game that really helps pass the time – it’s true, it is for grown children and adults. Some topic is taken – colors, seasons, color names, holidays, animals, etc., each participant should remember and sing a line from a song in the text of which there are words on this topic. The one who lasts the longest wins. Very captivating! The second game is simpler – suitable for not very long trips by car: each participant considers cars of a certain color, who counts more – he won. You just need to remember that in the game about cars the one who counts the white always wins, so if the children think equally fast, you need to give colors that are distributed about the same.
The son is very motion sick when he reads. Therefore, our salvation is an mp3 player. We upload audio books or fairy tales to it, and the child can listen for a long time. And then we play what he heard – stage a fairy tale or some fragment of a book.
“We have not arrived yet?”, Or how to deal with whining on the road
There is one proven way to deal with the endless questions of children like “Are we still long?” To do this, at the beginning of the trip, give the child a certain amount of money with the condition that he will be able to spend it immediately when you arrive at the place. The second condition: for each question “How long should we go?” etc. he must return some of the money to you.
At the same time, inform the baby every half hour about where you are right now.
