HELLO WONDERFUL PEOPLE
We know that engaging children in their spare time are a big task. Most of the 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 does not involve any kind of physical activity. But we as parents skip 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 get the time to do so. But I feel 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 goes 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 those naughty minions that do not study and does not let other studies either.
I find Flintobox as my savior here.
The theme of Flintobox for June for my 7-year girl was space and it included 4 activities that allowed my daughter to Explore, Create, Play and Read.
1- Our Solar System- It is a solar system puzzle which my daughter is very good at. She was so surprised to know about all planets detail and how they look like. Now she keeps on asking the question from that puzzle that has “Did you know?” Quiz. We have a jolly time traveling through the solar system.
2- Race To The Moon – Exciting game, assemble the puzzle then make a plan and strategies race to land on our natural satellite Moon. Who lands first wins. Three players can play at a time.
3-Mission Moon– Sensorial activity for your child to create a moonscape with rocket, astronaut, and stars!
4- Star Patterns– Gazing at star look so fascinating but when the child comes to know how star pattern forms and which are they called. they are more excited to find the star pattern in the night sky
5- Reading book– Got flinto storybook caught my kid attendance main and she took up and read all the story at once. her best friend is Flinto now.
