The activities developed by Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Registered Play Therapist, Jeanette Razo-Gonzalez, in two book styles that help a parent or other primary caregiver connect one-on-one with the young child in their care. For ages 3-8.
Learn how to connect with each other on a whole new level with activities that emphasize non-verbal communication. This category includes games in which you will guess the outcome of the activity or guess what the other is trying to express without using words.
When we teach Little Frogs they are special from head to toe, that positive message can create a buffer against negative outside influences. These activities provide Big Frog ways to foster feelings of connection, uniqueness, enforce a healthy body image, and build body awareness.
The activities in this category are designed to be challenging and present an opportunity to do better the next time. Activities that raise the bar and have higher goals each time, tend to progressively increase a Little Frog’s self-confidence as they accomplish each one.
Big Frogs and Little Frogs work together here to coordinate their body movements or actions. These activities emphasize connection and the rhythm of the relationship by paying close attention to each other, following what the other does, and observing all the little details and nuances that make us unique.
The activities in this section involve eating and feeding. Little Frogs love these activities because they involve tasty snacks! The aim here is to show how we care for each other in the relationship, and for Big Frogs to pay extra special, undivided attention to Little Frogs as they nurture them, increasing their connection.
The Keepsake Journal includes space for both of you to describe your favorite parts of your time together after each activity. Both of you may write or even draw your responses if it better communicates your answer to a younger child. Talk about your journal entries when you're both done!
