With the advance in digitization, children are more prone to screen time these days. Cartoons, videos, online games are just a click away. However, the consequences of such exposure are sleep disturbances and depression.
Therefore, we must limit the screen time for our children by exploring creative methods to engage our children, such as interesting projects, educational games which will add a fun element to their routine life.
So, let us have a look at 5 such educational games which will make learning fun for our children.
Gardening helps children to experiment with nature. Let that biologist unfold in your child. Gift them a germination set which will have a pot, some clay, seeds and a watering can. Show them how seeds are sown and let their hands get dirty all this while. Enjoy the joy on their face upon the sight of the first sprout. The best part about this kit is you can always repeat the activity with some other set of seeds. Ask them to note minute details like what time was the plant watered, when did the sprout come out, time to germinate for various seeds and length of the plant every day as it grows. View Product
Balloon’s are everyone’s favourite. Be it, kids or adults! While they make a party colourful there is more to balloons than we thought. Your chemistry lab can be right at your home if you try out a fireproof balloon formula. All you have to do is fill a balloon with water and try to take it closer to flames. The results will surprise you while you also learn about the ignition temperature of any given element and thermal conductivity of water. While smaller children can also do this activity, it is even recommended for bigger kids aged between 12 to 15 years. View Product
Let’s Get Soapy
Bath time can become fun for children when you promise them a variety of flavoured, coloured or shaped soaps during the bath time, which they could make themselves. What if they made these soaps with their little hands. The activity will let them understand what soaps are made up of or how do they get moulded into various shapes and also lures them to look forward to bathing with soaps that they craft on their own!
Soap making kits can teach children the action of water-soluble sodium or potassium salts of fatty acids on water molecules. What’s more? Add some rose petals or aloe vera extract to your soaps and educate your kids about skin-friendly products. View Product
Boats and Elasticity
Paper boats during monsoon are the fond memories of childhood for many adults. Well, why not add some physics to your boats now?
We can prepare a boat making kit for kids powered by elasticity. Doesn’t it sound cool? The elastic energy will power the boat to propel in water
What will children learn from this? They get to experience the conversion of energy from one form to other while you get to explain them Newton’s third law. Your kids learn, play, build their cognitive and motor skills altogether. View Product
Build a Robot
If you thought only scientists could build robots think again. Robotics is futuristic and allowing your kids to build robots will certainly give them an edge and a strong base for their bright future. You can always experiment with adding various concepts to a robot-like using solar panels or making the best utilization of waste to make a robot at homes. Make driving bots, cleaning bots, washing bots, drawing bots, pick and place bots and give your child wings early in their education to think ahead of time.View Product
