Some key survival skills for Kids in this Summer Vacations

gmail

Education teaches us a lot, but life requires some more essentials to be self-sufficient. There are many important life skills that children can learn outside school. And what better time than the summer vacation to do so? Why not get them involved in fun activities that can also help their overall growth and hone their personality? Here are some important life skills your kiddos can learn through fun activities. Bonus point: None of these involve gadgets!

1. FOOD to feed themselves
Unleash the inner MasterChef in your children! Invest in a child-friendly knife and get them to help you chop veggies. Bake cupcakes, toss salads or get creative with fruit popsicles – there’s a lot you can do together! It’s a win-win situation: you can spend quality time together and the kids end up eating healthy too.

2. Out-of-the-box living
The television doesn’t necessarily have to be an idiot box. Check out channels and services that have content tailored for children. There are meaningful movies and shows that expose them to other cultures or even inspire them to change the world. Just ensure you set limits as to how long they can watch TV in a day.

3. Become responsible for someone else
Has your kid been pestering you to get a pet? Get them to work with shelter animals as a volunteer. It’s a great way to help children understand the responsibility involved. And if you plan to get a pet anyway, then why not adopt from a shelter! Volunteering will help understand which furry baby is best suited for your family and lifestyle.

4. Practise a holistic lifestyle/Deal with stress better
It’s no surprise that yoga’s popularity has been on the rise, and with good reason. Practising it has a host of physical and emotional benefits. Kids who practise it are said to have longer attention spans and deal with stress better. We could go on about yoga’s benefits, but do you really need to be convinced anymore?

5. Earn, save and invest/Become a budding entrepreneur
DIY crafts mean fun for kids and a great opportunity to teach them financial skills. Get your children to learn how to make jewellery, soft toys or soaps. Let them tie-dye T shirts or even make lanterns out of old newspapers. They can earn pocket money by selling their handicrafts or you could show them how to save it in a bank.

6. Attitude matters / Winning isn’t everything
Life isn’t always about winning or achieving that target. It’s more about how you do it. A sport is one of the best ways to understand this. Enrol your kids in a sports camp to help them learn sportsmanship. Or let them attend a NLP workshop specially meant for children. They will pick up techniques to achieve their goals and become more confident.
