Holidays are stressful enough with kids and keeping them entertained all the time is often a challenge, let alone when you have to keep up the good work they have done at school and the teacher is not around. We have found some fun educational activities for school children to do during these school holidays. New educational titles including popular sticker books will certainly come handy.
Books and storytelling can be parents’ best companions during the nursery or school breaks. Kids require constant entertainment and we always try to seek extraordinary forms of entertainment in the belief that we would impress them but the truth is that good books and stories are equally entertaining with the educational advantage. Here is London Mums’ recommended Summer books and stories for children by age group.
In the last couple of weeks I have watched a few mainstream movies but none of them really impressed me. The cinematic beauty this Summer comes from independent low budgets films and in the kiddies’ space two in particular caught my imagination because they are sensationally written: Boyhood and Earth to Echo.
Kids-driven Sci-Fi Earth to Echo is E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982) meets The Blair Witch Project meets the Transformers.
Films can be great story starters to introduce kids to storytelling and the Summer can be a great time as children need to be entertained. Outdoor activities are essential but during the downtime and relaxation time, a combination of movies, games and books is brilliant to get them busy for a long time.
