How To Keep Your Kids Entertained and Learning

 

Without being sucked into Pinterest for hours

or

Spending a truck full of cash on 'stuff'

or

Having to hire someone to keep them out of your hair

5 Reasons Why You Should Trust Me

I have been teaching and working with kids for almost all my adult life (I'll let you guess how long that is but let's round it a quarter century!) which means I know how kids tick.

I have been a curriculum and educational games developer working with both in-house and international publishers which means I know what kind of activities help kids develop better skills even when they think they are just having fun

I am Montessori trained and have raised my son the Montessori way so I understand the importance of open-ended activities and how they help kids to expand their imagination and release their creativity

I have written guest posts for many child related sites and magazines, including Action Pack, Montessori Now, Crafty Crow and Rhythm Of The Home all with an emphasis of learning whilst having fun

I love learning about new ways to teach, generate ideas, mixing learning with having fun, trying out new ideas, testing theories. Basically I do all the donkey work so you don't have to!

Imagine If...

Imagine If... You never have to hear those fatal words "Mom, I'm Boooorrrreeeed" (said in suitable high pitched, nails on blackboard, whiney voice) ever again.

Imagine If... You have to go and find your kids and remind them it's lunch time, rather than them binge eating the whole of the contents of the pantry in one day because they are boredom snacking

Imagine If... You could get on and do your work without being pestered and interrupted every 3 minutes because the kids are bored and instead they are occupied, busy and out of your hair.

Imagine If... You didn't have to try and entertain your kids through the holidays, they could do it themselves leaving you to get on and do what you need to do.

Imagine If... Your kids were learning and having fun, being creative and using their imagination and you didn't have to anything more than log into the Boredom Buster portal. (They can choose what to do, whilst you put your feet up and have a nice cuppa)

What's Inside?

Inside you will find numerous short video challenges (we will be adding more as we come up with new ideas).

Each challenge is totally open ended allowing kids:

.

  • of all ages to join in

  • non gender specific, take an idea and run with, in a tutu, in football boots, in and tutu and football boots...

  • no specific equipment needed, just use what you have around the house

  • most can be done alone, side by side or as a team effort

  • designed to encourage kids to use their imagination - there is no right or wrong way of doing it

  • allows kids to be creative, no plans to follow, trial and error, testing and trying again, very much encouraged

.

You also get access to the Inspired Mama group where you are encouraged to post your kids achievements, big and small.

Their photos and videos will then be added to the Boredom Busters gallery. Which is also a great place to check out ideas and inspiration.

What age group is this good for? +

It was designed for roughly 4 to 12 year olds, I say roughly because all kids are different, we have had older, teenage brothers get in on the act too. Two to four year olds could also do many of the challenges but would probably need some help.

What if my child is not creative? +

I believe all children can be creative and have an imagination to unlock but the problem these days is that they are rarely given the chance to truly be creative. They are often given restraints or rules to follow at school, paint a picture but it must be of a tree, write a story but it must follow these rules... even tradionally open ended toys such a Lego now have rules to follow (built the set by following the instructions)

I have nothing against kids learning to follow instructions and rules but on the other hand, it shouldn't be taken from their chance to be creative, explore ideas, try and test things, tinker, build, paint, make something fantastic and failure miserably. These are all IMPORTANT life skills that our kids are missing out on when they are not given the chance to create.

Do we need to buy anything else? (are there hidden costs like most apps?) +

Nope. Not only are the challenges open ended, you really don't need to buy anything special. As long as you have a supply of recycling bits and bobs, toilet roll middles, a cardboard box or two, sellotape, pens and paper, a craft box maybe. Just make use of what you already have. Of course you can always add things like modelling clay into the mix.

What happens when all the challenges are completed? +

Part of the beauty of Boredom Busters is that you can interpret the challenges in several different ways, so you could do the same challenge 10 times and still come up with 10 different outcomes.

Not only that, we will be adding more challenges as we think of them. There is no end to the fun!

What do you mean by open ended activities? +

Open ended means that the outcome depends on the person doing the challenge. There is no wrong or right way, we give a challenge with s few suggestions to get the brain cells ticking over then whatever comes out of it, is the result.

The process for open ended activities is just as important (if not more so) that the final result.
