HELLO WONDERFUL PEOPLE
We know that engaging children in their spare time is big task. Most of parents introduce their kids to the digital world because children find it fancy to play with and goes more inclined to explore it as it do not involve any kind of physical activity. But we as parents skips to realize the bad effects of this fancy and it comes in front of all of us in a very short span of time too.
When children say we are bored, a new topic emerges in our mind that what we would suggest them to engage our kids in a very fruitful way.
I personally love to do craft & creative work but I hardly gets the time to do so. But I feels from my heart that it would be nice if my kids too can develop their interest in any such activity that will help them to explore the world of their own creativity. I too as mother hate when my daughter go crazy about watching that stupid Doremon and all. Moreover sometimes I feel like that Doremon and shin-chan too are the part of my family. I simply do not want my kid to turn into that naughty minions that do not study and does not let other study either.
I find Flintobox as my savior here.
The theme of Flintobox for November was music and it included 4 activities that allowed my daughter to Explore, Create, Play and Read. IT made my little musician ready to rock.
Activities in FlintoBox
1- One-kid Band-My daughter made drum and ankle tambourine . Drum fascinated my little champ to bang on . Ankle tambourine which she made and wear on her ankle then danced like a star . She was so surprise and said “we can make it more mom , its so easy”
2-Musiquence – Exciting game which has different instrument picture and we have to make match of the same instrument that create curiosity among my kid about instrument what they are what they call or worked.
3-Rain stick -Rain stick is new to me too . This instrument used in ancient time. A rain stick is a long, hollow tube partially filled with small pebbles or beans that has small pins or thorns arranged helically on its inside surface. When the stick is upended, the pebbles fall to the other end of the tube, making a sound reminiscent of rain falling. It was played in the belief it could bring about rainstorms. My child explores the sound of raindrops by creating it.
4-Exploring Music-With simple craft materials, child creates interesting musical instruments like Harmonica and Megaphone , so was so surprise that simple thing can create music too.
