Activities for Children

Activities for You and Your Children & The Value of Parent Child Play

Today we start our new series on Activities for Children.

Each day we will publish one new activity for you and your child – or children – to do together. These activities will fall into one of the following groups:

  • Arts and Crafts
  • Creativity
  • Fantasy Play
  • Food Stuff
  • Group Play
  • Indoor Play
  • Math and Numbers
  • Memory
  • Older Kid’s Play
  • Recycled & Reused Household Materials
  • Science
  • Tiring Them Out
  • Toy Making
  • Words & Language
  • Activities That Need Time Only

These activities will help you spend meaningful time with your child while at the same time helping them develop a wide range of skills and abilities.

This form of teaching is fun and rewarding, and helps build a deeper and more meaningful relationship between you and your child – and best of all, each activity only requires materials that most households already have lying around. In fact, some of these activities require nothing more than your time.

Some of these activities may at first seem obvious, but most of us lead busy lives, and what might seem obvious at first glance, is not always so obvious amidst the hustle and bustle of daily life

These children’s activities are generally suitable for children between the ages of 2 and 12 and what’s great about many of them is that older children can enticed to play them with their younger siblings, encouraging them to spend meaningful time together  – and develop their relationships.

To select more children’s activities simply look at the menu of topics under “Activities” in the right hand column.

And above all remember to check back each day to see the latest activity for you and your child.

Finally, here is a great video for you on the educational value of parent-child play.

This series of educational activities for your children and you, is brought to you by Zane Education, the company that also brings you online Visual Learning for for children of all ages and abilities.
