Don’t miss these little bonding moments with your toddlers

The bond between mother and child is unique and lasting, starting from pregnancy and influencing life well into adulthood. A mom is often the child’s first friend, playmate, and teacher.

But a modern working mom’s time with her child is incredibly limited. As such, moms must set time every day to bond with her child—and take every chance to turn regular activities into quality time for herself and her kid.

There are various fun and educational activities moms can do with their kids every day. The kids will not only enjoy these activities but will also develop valuable skills and habits needed for life.

Arts & Crafts
A child’s imagination and creativity know no bounds, that’s why it’s important to do activities that will help develop their artistic skills. Doing arts and crafts projects with your child will expose them to a world full of visual imagery, which can be a new channel of communication between parent and child.
Always a pleasure seeing my sons draw! They draw every single day!

Gardening
Growing a garden is a surprisingly relaxing way to teach kids about the importance of nature and the environment. It also teaches them to be responsible, as plants are placed under their care.

Playing Sports
Kids need to have fun and be active, and sports enables them to experience both. Physical activities such as running and playing badminton will give kids the energy and strength they need as they grow. Playing sports with your kids will also teach them how to play fairly and win a game with a ‘teammate.’ 
My kids and I don't do sports. What I do is just chase them around and let them run, run, run!

Cooking
If there’s one thing kids love doing, it’s eating. Since they already love to munch on their food, teaching them how to cook will make them appreciate what goes into their meal. This activity can make kids realize their dreams of becoming a chef—or help establish healthier eating habits at least.

Bath Time
One of the most relaxing and intimate bonding moments between a mom and her child is bath time. Bath time with the kids can be used as another means of communication between mother and child, creating conversations that both of them will fondly treasure. 

In our family, it's my husband who takes care of bath time. He's more fun kasi!
An activity as simple as bathing your toddler can create a lasting bond between a mom and her child. Cetaphil Baby further strengthens this bond thanks to their line of products that gently touches your toddler’s skin. 

Bath time with the kids isn’t only a great bonding activity, as it’s also one way of showing your kids the importance of taking care of their body, keeping their skin clean and from acquiring unwanted skin diseases. The Cetaphil Baby products are made up of ingredients that keep your child’s skin moisturized while also soothing sensitive skin, making it an ideal bath time essential for kids.

When I do bath duties, I give my feet a good scrubbing while Piero pours water over them!

Cetaphil is a skincare brand that has been recommended by dermatologists for over 70 years and is today used by millions with delicate skin from all over the world. Recently, the brand carried its gentle cleansing ways over to baby products with the launch of the Cetaphil Baby line. For information, visit www.cetaphil.com.ph
