If you’ve learned anything about your child (or students), it must be that they tend to get bored fast. There’s always something more entertaining to do here and there and so they throw away toys or leave areas incomplete and move on. This is why Educational Roundup presents you with a few activities to try with your children (or students) to keep them engaged daily.
The activities we have picked are as follows:
- Coloring books. Firstly, buy your child are set of crayons, paints, or even simple color pencils. and allow them to fill the void white space with an assorted pattern of colors. This may even allow the child to develop their artistic skills or simply find out what their favorite color is.
- Hide and Seek. The thrill of a temping game of Hide-and-Seek will allow the child to express their ability to hide in quick scenarios. They could use their tracking and perception skills to find out where their peers are. A contest on who finds the rest the fastest could rile the children up too.
- Whiteboard Games. Next, classics such as Hangman and Tic-Tac-Toe are a great way to allow your child to use their guessing skills. These simple methodic calculations can develop cognitive thinking skills. They can apply these skills in a wide area of fields as they expand upon their education. These simple games also allow your child to take the initiative into devising a plan to succeed all by themselves, so it’s a great way to hone their sense of accomplishment or learning by trial and error.
- Ball games. Moreover, sort the children in a circle or on desks and pass around a ball. The music plays and the children pass the ball around, when silence strikes, the child with the ball has to explain the word on the board or solve the mathematical sum.
- Pictionary. Finally, this is an engaging game that leaves everyone guessing, yes even you. One child draws an image on the board and the remaining children have to guess what it is. The one who guesses right gets to draw next. This is a good way to test new learned concepts by telling them to draw or explain something relating to English or Science. This will make learning fun while also reinforcing the children’s memory.
