Children are the future of the world. As such, we must be able to nurture them into upstanding individuals. We have a responsibility to teach and direct them towards the correct path. As Children's Day is just around the corner, it's best to prepare for activities that the kids will not only love and enjoy but also activities that they could also learn from. Here are a few fun activities you can do with the kids; not only will they enjoy these activities, but they might also be able to learn something new as well.
Plant a tree
As technology and social media have taken over almost all of everything, getting the kids out to enjoy nature can be an eye-opener for them. Not only will they experience something refreshing, but it will also teach them the value of nature and the impact every one of them has.
Sit the kids around and tell them a story. Aesop's Fables can be a good start. These fables all have moral stories to tell at the end. If you want to do a little something different, you can tell them a story about how Children's Day came to be. You could also let them dress up as historical characters.
What kid doesn't love shopping, right? Even adults love shopping. Take the kids shopping, but this time, do something a bit different. Let them hold the money. Let them be the ones that pay for the things that they buy. This way, You're subtly teaching them the value of money and how to spend wisely.
Kids are very creative. Face painting is one activity that the kids let their imaginations run wild. It also gives them the chance to be whoever they want to be. Face painting can also enhance the kids' creative side. You might have an artist in the making.
Hold a bake sale. Kids love being artistic and being able to express themselves. Help the kids bake a cake and let their imaginations go wild with the design. This activity not only enhances their creative side, but it also teaches them how to bake too!
Hold a karaoke session
