Sure, video games aren’t the enemy when it comes to keeping kids busy - it’s such an easy way to give yourself a gap to get your own things done! But, the fact remains that spending hours in front of computer and cellphone screens, doesn’t do the development of anyone’s social skills justice...
As a mom, it’s important to continuously remind your kids that countless hours of fun can be found in doing other activities in and around the home, too. The OROS Man has made it convenient for you with fun-tivity ideas that have stood the test of time and are simple to explain.
Using white paper lunch bags and a range of colourful markers, create a chart according to which your kids can search and collect objects for each coloured square indicated on the bag.
Ask your kids to hunt for medium-to-large, smooth rocks in the garden. Set up a station with cardboard and newspapers, and show them how to apply acrylic paint using a variety of cheap paint brushes. You can also introduce googly eyes and strings of wool that may be attached with superglue.
Help your kids find long, yet strong, sticks in the garden or pick branches from trees to which they can add a bunch of leaves, flowers, seeds and grass. The challenge is for them to find ‘natural accessories’ in their environment that can be used to personalise their wands.
