Fun Activities For Kids

Fun Activities For Kids...

According to Erik Erikson's Psychosocial Theory, kids learn to be independent, capable, and hardworking during their childhood years.


Fun Activities For Kids

However, appropriate opportunities must be provided for them to learn how to be all these.

If you neglect providing your child with activities to facilitate learning and responsibility, your child may end up feeling inadequate and inferior, and be lazy.

If this is so, you must grab this stage and make the most of it! Activities for children should be learning grounds but that does not mean it should be boring.

Kids are just bursting with energy! They crave for fun. Spontaneity bores them.

Fashion your kids' activities in a way that excites them but at the same time, also teaches them in knowledge, skills, and attitudes.

Here are some fun activities for kids...

1. Crafts Making

Painting, drawing, and colouring are some of the fun activities for kids under crafts making.

This activity is an avenue to unleash your child's creative potential.

Allowing them to mix and match colours and deciding on the right materials to use will enable them to learn how to be independent in their decisions.

Giving them the chance to show off their finished masterpiece will boost their self-esteem.

2. Outdoor Games

Outdoor games are fun activities for kids because they get to play with other children.

They can meet new friends, which means that their social skills can improve.

Aside from that, they learn how to communicate, lead, be led, and be part of a team.

Outdoor games are also fun because kids are able to explore a different setting. Kids are able to scream, laugh, run, jump, sweat out, and get wild!

Your kid just cannot do these things at home. The following are some of the popular and exciting outdoor games...

  • Hide and seek
  • Heads up, sevens up
  • Red light, green light
  • Capture the flag
  • Skip rope
  • Tag
  • Cat and mouse

3. Scavenger Hunts

I think almost every child is an explorer by heart. Kids are in a moment of their lives that they explore to learn.

A scavenger hunt is an activity whereby an organizer lists some specific things and hides them all over a designated area.

The participants are tasked to find these items within an allotted time. Scavenger hunts are really fun activities for kids because they get so excited in searching for the lost items.

Their minds are exercised because they are trained to think where the items are most possible hidden.

Children just love the idea of playing detective! They love to exercise all their five senses! They look for the items.

They touch the soil and feel inside pots. They smell and taste around. They even hear their opposing team's ideas on where to look for!

And even if they were not able to find the items, the activity has gotten them giggling and ecstatic.

Seeing those beautiful smiles on their faces, what more could you really ask for?

4. Nature Camping

Children love the outdoors! They think that they can find really beautiful things around.

They are right! The outdoors has a lot to offer a young mind.

Camping outdoors is one of the really fun activities for kids because they get to see the beauty of the woods, smell the fresh air, feel the cool breeze, and touch the leaves and flowers of a variety of plants.

They also get to do things without the use of technology. They learn how to start a fire without matches and cook above bonfires.

They can also get to see fireflies at night and hear the sounds of so many insects.

Camping has a really good way of showing the other side of life - the one that is not cramped with work, pollution, and fast paces.

A kid can really enjoy the company of loved ones in the serenity of the environment.
