Ways to bring out the creativity in your children!
Vacations ÔÇô itÔÇÖs a magic word for every child. They spend the entire school year looking forward to this time of the year. While vacations are the perfect time for children to have fun and relax, it is also the time when parents need to engage their children in different activities which hone their skills and help with their growth and development.
We have put together a list of fun activities that can help foster creativity in your kids and keep them busy all day long and reduce some of that stress for you.
Form a book club: Reading is fun and probably one of the best habits you can inculcate in your child. Make it a fun activity for them by creating a book club (either with family members or neighbourhood children) and they can select the books they would want to read, discuss and ask questions.
Introduce cooking sessions: Have your child assist you when you are cooking or have a baking session where your little one can help you bake delicious cakes or cupcakes. If you are an expat living in a foreign country, then this would be the best time to introduce your child to different cuisines, or maybe even organise a bake sale.
Plan a mock parliament: You can put together a mock parliament session for your children, their friends and host friendly debates. This will also require them to name their party, create slogans and posters and choose their topic for the debate. It can be fun and informative.
Learn an instrument or a dance style: Introduce your children to the world of music and dancing depending on what fascinates your child.
Introduce your child to sports: ItÔÇÖs never too early to play sports. Enroll your child in a sport of their choice and see how they love it!
Learn a foreign language: You children can either sign up for classes that teach languages or download mobile apps on your phone and learn the language together with your child.
Enroll your kid for a camp: Summer camps help develop inter-personal skills and will introduce them to various activities that will help shape their personality.
You could purchase subscriptions to some informative magazines like Nat Geo, or have a fun session on learning about different foreign currencies of different countries. In case your child is being nurtured by your parents ÔÇÿback homeÔÇÖ, you could always send money through a money services provider or purchase subscriptions directly.
Remember that a childÔÇÖs education stretches far beyond the four walls of a classroom. As a parent you can develop your childÔÇÖs creative learning and inspire them to think in a more challenging and innovative manner.
