Creating special routines or activities can be delightful for parents and kids. In this video, Muppet dads dance with their little ones, and Rosita loves it when her dad helps her with her hair. Watch the video with children, then think about fun little ways you could instill a bit of magic into routine moments. For example, you might:

  • Make up a silly routine (such as high-five or saying “see you later, alligator”) for greeting each other or saying goodbye.
  • Talk about something funny you saw during your day.
  • Do different characters’ voices when reading bedtime stories like Elmo and his dad.
  • Make up a game to play during bathtime.
