Dear Tiffany,
Yes you are right about importance of making cores fun, about being excited by doing them, about much time for cleaning flat after children.
I can add the importance of right invitation of kid to usual home work (washing kitchen utensils): “This plate is your mother. Let’s wash her back, belly. This saucepan is your father. Let’s wash his back, belly. This fork is your brother. Let’s wash his head, legs.” It is nice for 1-4 yr olds. For more old: “No. I can’t play with you. Help me with dish washing and I immediately…!”
All these (mentioned) is common knowledge.
I think about special games which make my kid handy: making toys. Parents must teach kids scissors, glue, wooden boards, nails, hammer, hand saw, pliers, wire…
The simple toys can be made from paper. For that parent must know principles of safe work with tools, materials, cloths. Must have an idea, technology of making the toy and all those tools, materials, cloths. Parents do not have time for that. I accumulate parents’ experience and use it in my practice with my great-granddaughter. It brings good result. I can help and need a help. Eugene. March 7, 2016

Yes I've learned from having three kids under three years if you make cores fun and be excited about doing them they will want to help at first it takes twice as long to clean but in the long run your children will be amazing little helpers

Dream to find Skype contacts with parents to initiate joint “craft” games. Sure it will activate children’s intellect and culture.

Siberia, wow. Your English is well written. Your great grandchild is luck to have you involved and teaching her more than to use computers.

Dear Sarah,
Yes, HANDY.
Greeting from Russian Siberia.
In my life I understood how important contacts with parents are. Especially early contacts. Now I spend all possible time to be with my kid, great granddaughter. She is 6. I try to make her handy and English speaking. For that I teach her simple craft skills. Topics are: toys from paper, origami, simple toys from wood, LED electronics in future. Of course it is game, not technical training. I like my result.
I'd like to find like-mindeds for closer regular contacts in teaching.
Regards, Eugene. March 5, 2016

Handy? Like able to fix things? I let my kids tinker with anything that is already broken. Old radios, clocks, watches, whatever. They take them apart and see how the mechanisms work.
