Fun Learning Activities for Kids at Home
Apr 23rd 2020
School isn't the only place for learning activities. At home, parents are teachers to their kids but it doesn't have to feel like a classroom. Get the kids excited about discovering something new with these learning activities at home as fun time!
Twist and Count
Got a Twister game in storage? Give it a smart new touch by playing Twisted Math. Write numerals on sticky notes and set them on the random dots. Stick labels with numbers onto the circles of a Twister mat. Give each kid in turn an addition, subtraction, or multiplication. Then, have them place the hand or foot on the answer. Players who fall over or give the wrong answer are out. The last kid standing (and solving the math problems correctly) wins!
A Jump-Rope Spelling Game
Forget flash cards! Tackling vocabulary homework while soaking up the sun in the morning is a lot more fun with this activity. Kids in elementary almost always have the energy to burn and spelling lists to memorize, that's why this game is such a brilliant idea. Head to the backyard or sidewalk and pick the caller and the jumper. To start the game, the caller reads aloud a word from the list. The jumper should spell it, skipping rope once for each letter (don’t worry, it's fine to stop between hops to recall the next letter!)
Kids can create their own bakery and bake goodies to sell to parents who would be their customers. Let them get some experience in selling cookies and keeping accounts by using monopoly money. Provide assorted cookies in different quantities to give a practical experience of sorting, classifying, and organizing.
Parents can use a great tasting cookie which is loved by everyone for this role playing, such as Danisa Butter Cookies. Made with an authentic Danish Recipe, this Danish butter cookies brand is a perfect snack to help in a learning activity for kids. The most favorite variant is the Danisa Traditional Butter Cookies with its golden baked color, buttery aroma and taste that melts in the mouth. This Danish butter cookies brand also has several other delicious variants. The Danisa Choco Cashew Butter Cookies is a combination of the earthy goodness of cashew nuts with real melted chocolate. The Currant Crunch Butter Cookies is made with fresh currants to create a perfectly unique blend of tart and sweetness with a crisp and crunchy texture.
Make an Onion Growth Chart
Inspired by the wall markings used to track kids' height, simple onion growth charts let young ones adopt a growing onion and track its progress. They'll hardly notice they're learning math and science along the way. Prepare a glass of water and put the bottom of the onion to sprout extra roots.
To make a measuring stick, use a wooden craft stick and set it next to the onion's container. When the green shoot that grows from the top of the onions reaches half an inch, have the kids measure it with a ruler, then use a marker to note the measurement and the date on the measuring stick. Repeat every two to three days until the onion starts to fully grow.
Last but not least, give the kids rewards after they successfully complete each learning activity, like a couple of treats. One traditional treat that's a must try is Denmark’s well-loved traditional butter cookies. Danisa Butter Cookies are absolutely delicious, the richness of the butter and the perfectly balanced sweetness is just right to please people all over the world and loved by many.
