Brain Building Moments


Babies are born ready to learn. And you already have what it takes to help them!

First 5 California has partnered with Vroom to provide you with over 1,000 fun and free tips and activities to help add learning to mealtime, bath time, bedtime, or anytime!

We know life gets busy, but with these fun activities, backed by science, you can turn everyday moments into brain-building moments!

Try this activity to get you started:

BEDTIME: Happy Thoughts (3 years old)

Before bed, encourage your child to share with you as many happy thoughts as they can think of, like friends, family members, or favorite places to visit. Ask them questions like, “Why does that make you happy?” Share what makes you feel happy too.

What Your Child Is Learning: BRAINY BACKGROUND

When you talk about feelings with your child, whether they're yours, theirs, or others, you help them learn other people may feel differently than they do. Being able to understand the views of others is an important life skill that will help them in school and in life.
