Fun Activities to Stop Kids Saying… ‘I’m Bored!’
Children need to be active every day to promote their healthy growth and development.
Why activities are important?
Relief From Stress: In today’s world, there is a lot of stress. Doing extracurricular activities helps your child to have a good time and relieve stress. Working with other children can be enjoyable and fun. Most extracurricular activities have a relaxed and comfortable environment.
Increasing Self Confidence: Some children are not very great at academics. For such children succeeding in an activity outside of academics can be very rewarding and encouraging. Children become more self-confident and learn new social skills like problem-solving, negotiation, cooperation, etc. These skills will help them all through the life right from childhood till the workplace. Some children are quite average in studies but they really shine in some other area in life.
