SUNDAY FUNDAY: SOME JUST-FOR-FUN CONTENT TO MAKE YOU SMILE
Colouring is a great stress reliever but it can also be used as an educational tool. A few benefits of colouring include development of fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, focus, and creativity. These colouring pages from Education.com can be used as a just-for-fun colouring project but can also be incorporated into lesson plans as they have pages that can be used to practice addition, grammar, life cycles, and much more.
Tune into Birdsong Radio for relaxing birdsongs. If you live in an area where you don’t often hear birds chirping away, this is a great way to experience a part of nature from your home. Research has shown that listening to and being in nature can improve our overall wellbeing, so try spending a few minutes as a family each day and relax as you listen to these sounds of nature.
Staying connected with family and friends can be particularly difficult during this time, but luckily there’s apps for that! The Keepy app allows you to organize, save, and share your child’s artwork, schoolwork, photos, and mementos with your loved ones – the app is easy to use even for grandparents! 😉 Apps like Skype, Houseparty, and FaceTime are all great ways to stay in touch and keep your family updated on what your kiddos have been up to.
Stay tuned for more resources to help spark kids’ creative learning!
