In this lockdown, with a lack of places to escape, monotony has become our constant companion. While some try to break away from it by making viral videos, most of us aren't that lucky. As we ruminate over these viral clips for a few priceless seconds, the craving to have our old life back doesn't leave.
Like adults, children of our house too are dealing with a fusion of boredom and stagnation. With only a few hours exerted in online classes, they are left with not many tasks at hand. In a tough situation like this, especially one that is never witnessed before, parents are oblivious of the ways to tackle it.
Knowing the importance of creativity in the early years, we empathise with our parents' thought process. We are here to guide you on how to encourage your children to spread their wings of imagination. Because the best things are born out of the simplest yet strongest ideas. On this note, let's speak more about making our little ones the creative geniuses of tomorrow.
- Keep asking questions
Don't shy away from asking impromptu questions. For example, know their top 3 wishes or the image of their ideal superhero.
- Repurposing household items
Upcycling also stops the waste from saturating our already overflowing landfills. Help your child understand the value of this approach and the difference it makes to our environment. As they think out-of-the-box ways to reconstruct these items.
- Teaching skills beyond academic walls
You can begin by taking a download from your child of their learnings in the classroom. Relate these concepts to real-life situations. For example, tell them about the acidic and basic substances present in our house, show how water molecules expand on freezing with an experiment or the value of teamwork by using sports teams as reference. This clever method of making connections prepares children for the future.
- Using the power of storytelling
Even India's best selling author, Chetan Bhagat, vastly spoke about the power of storytelling. Much before his books were turned into blockbuster feature films, he was an ardent storyteller. The LEAD masterclass with Mr. Bhagat analyses how children can hone their writing skills from a nascent age. This session can alleviate your child’s thinking skills.
