Activities are a wonderful way to show kids that learning can be fun.
"Growing Tree Academy Preschool & Childcare Center" is one solution. We are exceptionally kid- and family-friendly, offering fun activities in a safe environment that allows parents to relax and spend much-needed time alone together.
We can also help you find fun activities that you can do with your children at home, bringing the family together to enjoy each other’s company.
With today’s video games, internet access and television, it’s often difficult for parents to compete for their children’s attention. What’s worse is that many kids have forgotten what it’s like to play with simple “low-tech” games, such as hopscotch or hide-and-seek.
With a little persistence and creativity, however, you can find plenty of fun activities to try with your children.
These activities for kids include hands-on projects and games that are both interesting and educational. With fun activities for students in preschool through high school, and subjects that range from math-themed playground games to up-cycled sewing projects, there is something to suit the preferences of any child.
It's no surprise to hear that kids need daily doses of exercise in their lives. Regular activity helps children build healthy minds. It also enhances self-esteem, boosts concentration, and lessens mood swings.
Parenting young children is difficult on any day. When boredom sets in and parents or caregivers need to finish chores, electronics sometimes become a temporary babysitter to keep kids busy. (Admit it, you've done it.) But when the lights go out, tantrums begin, as the electronic "nanny" vanishes.
Power outages are the perfect opportunity to have fun in an old-fashioned way and to encourage kids to amuse themselves using their creative abilities and minds. Along with the flashlights, batteries and candles, be prepared with fun activities and supplies that will keep the kids and family having fun when the lights go out. Share them with your nanny too, in case she's watching your kids when a blackout hits.
Here's a list of ideas to get you started:
* Build the Day Away
* Be Inspired by Books
* Fashion Old-fashioned Yarn Dolls
* Turn Art into a Game
* Break Out the Board Games
* Play Spotlight Charades
* Craft a Duct Tape Masterpiece
* Cook up a Tasty Treat
* Make a Camp Site
Turn an unfortunate power outage into a fun moment to connect with family. This is the perfect chance for the kids to use nothing but their imaginations and hands in order to pass the time.
When you bring your children to our day care center, they are exposed to many creative games, crafts and fun activities. Kids love our extensive facilities and activities, and often meet other kids they like to play and hang around with. Our staff treats kids as if they were family.
We also offer a variety of projects and games for holidays and special events throughout the year. You and your kids can do these fun activities indoors and outdoors, year-round, at your place or ours. Contact us for more information at (760) 945-9222.
