The global crisis and 24X7 lockdown certainly left the kids affected the most. With schools closed, children were confined to their homes, and it was a huge task for parents to keep coming up with new activities to keep them active and entertained. In situations when children can’t meet their friends, go out, and have normal school life, it takes a toll on kids’ physical and creative self.
However, as we step into a new year with positive energy, let us delve into some fun and interesting things to do in 2021 for kids. Let’s not wait any further and jump to some exciting and fun ways to make 2021 the best-ever year for child development and growth and become family goals for 2021.
1. How About a New Fun Hobby?
You can keep your kids occupied and enhance their creativity by introducing a new hobby. Children have the most imaginative mind. Put these minds to some good use with some fun kid’s activities, like crafts for kids, online music lessons, dance, gardening, story-book reading, yoga, indoor and outdoor games, and kids drawing, to name a few. The best part is, there is an unending list of hobbies to choose from.
Enrol your kids in any activity they seem a little bit interested in, and who knows they might become 2021 goals for your kids.
2. Nothing Compares to Gratitude
Kind kids reflect good parenting. Different people have different parenting styles. Every child must be taught to appreciate the little things in life, like a full meal, a healthy life, lovely parents, good friends.
Encourage them to thank the Universe or God for all the love they have bestowed upon them. Teach them that being respectful is important, not just to elders, but to everyone. This will inculcate a value of equality, empathy and respect in your children.
3.Sharing is Caring
Does your child get on your nerves when you ask them to share something with their siblings, friends and others? Why not teach them the importance of sharing this year? Help them understand the true meaning of sharing. Ask them to share their things with their siblings or even better, take them out and donate clothes, food, utensils, and even toys with others. It will make them understand how satisfying sharing can be.
4. Fix the Long-standing Schedule
Are you still fretting over not being able to follow the long due timetable for you kid? Why not fix it then? Your child needs discipline, which should include sleeping early and waking up on time.
Maintaining a study, hobby and playtime schedule is equally important. It will help your kid learn time management from an early age. Children’s growth is to a great extent, dependent on their respect for time.
5. Shower the Good Deeds With Rewards
There is a reason why schools have award ceremonies. Why don’t you put this in your list of parenting tips of this year and present your child with a reward for every good behaviour or achievements? This act will give them a sense of good and bad performance and motivate them to do better.
These rewards don’t have to be money or fancy toys, it can be as simple as a pat on the back, a hug, extra play time or making their favourite food.
6. A Happy Child is a Blessed Child
Nothing compares to a happy child! Different parenting styles have different tips for parents, but it remains incomplete if it does not include the vitality of happiness and staying positive.
Finding happiness even in adversity is an adult thing, but it needs to be taught to the kids at an early age. Kids create a ruckus over tiny little things like not getting their favourite toys, sharing candy, or doing their homework. Help them understand the difference between feelings and behaviour. They must understand being truly happy can supersede any other achievement in life. After all, happiness is a state of mind.
