Fun Ways To Teach Your Kids

Children develop from a. Dry early age, and their first 10 years of life and crucial for their development and educational later on in life. Teachers, of course, provide most of the teaching a child needs in their weekday, however, they aren’t the only ones who should be teaching valuable lessons to your child.

 

As a parent, you should try every day to teach your child different subjects and get them interested in science, nature, and maths. There are plenty of early learning centers which you can send them to, but you can also do your bit by teaching them in a fun way at home and out and about. Here are some of the ways you can teach your child today.

 

Go Outside

Children love nothing more than to be outside and active. Take this as the percent advantage to teach your child about nature and science. For example, you can buy a Collins bird book online for your child and when you are out and about in the countryside they will be able to identify different species. If you have a pond in your back garden or there is one near your home you can go and investigate the species of frog, newt and insects in there too. Children learn best by getting their hands dirty so this method is a brilliant way to get them interested in nature.

 

Play a Game

When you are teaching your child it doesn’t have to be a chore. When you are at home you can make learning into a fun game between you and your child. For example, you can teach them maths with marbles or balls. You can even teach them square roots by using a Connect 4 Board. When your child puts together a square which has 4 counters down and 4 across: as them to count the number of counters in total. 16 is 4 squared, so this will teach your child in a simple way what a squared value really means.

 

Get Crafty

Children love to be creative and this is a fact you can exploit to teach your child about maths and even about art. You can cut out shapes to teach your child about the different shapes for maths, you can write things down on colorful paper to make them feel as if they are playing while learning: and you can even make a playhouse out of cardboard with them and this will actually help them learn how to measure. You can use great resources online such as with pandaparents to give you inspiration and make your children learn lots of amazing things.

 

Visit a Museum

If you want to have a fun day trip as well as teach your child about science and history then going to a local museum is the perfect option. Museum,s are filled with amazing artifices, interactive displays, and information which will get your child completely immersed in the subject and make them interested in different things. Once the trip is over you could by them a book about what they have seen to encourage them to do their own further reading afterward. A lot of children are fascinated by history and science so this could be a great way to teach.

 

To The Stars

 

One of the most magical things you can teach your children about is space and everything in it. Taking the time to teach your child about planets and the solar system will be a great way to open their eyes and make them want to learn even more. For example, you can show them some NASA learning resources which will help your children understand more about the planet. And as a fun evening trip, you can take your child into the country and let them watch the stars in the sky. You can even bring a sky map so you can show them the constellations too. It will be a great way to teach because children find stars magical.

 

Play Science

 

Interactive learning is the most fun way to learn for your children, and also a fun way for you to teach them. There are tons of different experiments you can perform for your child to get them into science, and one of the things you could do is make your own putty. Children love playing with putty so if you show them how to make it, it can be really fun for them. You can teach them about chemical reactions with baking powder and vinegar, and you can teach them about

6 Activities to do with children that are free!!

I have three amazing grandson’s, ages 4, 3 & 2. We love to do activities and stay busy. They are always wanting to try something new! I try to think of fun things to do with them, that not only will save me money but will be memorable for them. I love knowing they are going to remember doing things with their Mimi and Poppy even when they get older.

  1. Attending church functions

Churches have a lot of fun activities for children. Our own church, has a children’s church monthly, kids classes and they do a pot luck after church every week.  All of this is free of course and not only fun for your child but you will meet amazing people!

2. Fly a kite

Children love to do anything outside, we love taking kites out and spending hours flying them. Living near a beach is great because of the breeze to help us get those kites high in the sky.

3. Go to a park

I love to pack snacks, drinks and toys for our park, they will play for hours as long as we have everything we need. They could care less if we eat out as long as they are having fun, so you could even make sandwiches and have a picnic. If the weather doesn’t permit outside fun, we do a board game day and have a picnic inside!

4. Rock painting

Living in Rockport, Texas, there is a group that actually goes around to parks and hides these amazing inspirational rocks all over. My grands love to spend time painting rocks for their parents, some to hide and for each other rocks. We make an adventure out of it, going around to find the perfect rock, then once we are done taking them to parks to hide. This is very inexpensive to do!

5. Fishing

Having boys this is an easy one, their poppy loves to fish and takes them every chance he can to share this with them. They are now hooked (no pun intended). We can spend hours fishing, as long as they are biting. Most states don’t require children to have fishing licenses.

6. Plant a garden

We plant a garden every year and the boys love to “help” little do they know they are learning so much about providing for their family and taking care of the earth. They love to work in the garden with their poppy and he gets “free” help.

These are just a few things we do to spend quality time with our grandsons without spending a fortune. I would love to hear your suggestions or how you save money spending time with your loved one!
