5 Activities That Can Help To Boost Your Child’s Learning Abilities
What are you doing to help your kids learn? Are you giving them expensive encyclopedias to read? Are you giving them expensive toys which promise to boost your kids’ intelligence levels? Are you pushing them hard at elementary school so they can learn faster? Are you making them watch fancy kids-learning shows on television?
If you are doing any of the above, let us tell you that you are missing something very important. Sometimes, you tend to overlook the most basic things in life that can boost your child’s learning power and imagination. Here are 5 fun and simple activities that will help your child learn and remember.
Activity #1: Teach your child gardening
Confused? Well, don’t be, because gardening can certainly boost your child’s learning abilities. Once you take your little one out in the backyard, show him/her gardening tools, talk to him/her about plants and explain to your child how nature works, he/she will have a better understanding of life. We think that there is nothing better to help our children learn than from Mother Nature herself.
Activity #2: Take your child to the science center
Find your nearest science center and take your child for a fun day trip, and keep doing that every now and then. We understand that you may not be interested in science yourself, but a science center trip will light a spark in your child’s imagination. He/she will learn ‘how things work’ which is a very important element in your child’s learning curve.
Activity #3: Play a knowledge quiz
If you are looking for a fun way to help your child learn, this is it, ladies. Find out simple topics that may interest your child like names of planets, names of cities, etc. Bring home a big piece of cardboard and start cutting out little quiz-cards, with a question on each card. Pass the cards around to your child and your partner, and have a fun family time. Whoever knew that learning can be so much fun?
