Helpsters Help Out
Our little ones LOVE to help out! Whether it’s in the kitchen or in the yard, they’re willing to help us with tasks!
BUT it hasn’t always been this way! Now that we find ourselves at home, we’ve had lots of opportunities to teach the children how to help out more. From helping to roll ice cream sandwiches in sprinkles to putting away their toys, our children are learning what helping out looks like.
Just as the kids are learning to help out, it’s our job to help them make sense of what’s going on around them. The world is a little complicated right now. We haven’t been able to visit with Grandma and Papa in weeks. We’ve had to celebrate birthdays without our extended family. We can’t visit their favorite parks to play in. For the little ones, this can be difficult to understand. That’s why I am so thankful for a new series from the makers of Sesame Street.
Helpsters Help You
“Helpsters Help You” features Cody and a team of vibrant monsters who love to solve problems! The mini-episodes help teach children how to solve some of today’s problems like what can you do when you can’t visit your favorite park because it’s closed.
