Go shopping for supplies

Create hype the day you would like to go for shopping. Make him prepare a list of stationery that he has to buy including lots of color papers so that he could play around the world of origami. Encourage the kid to be creative and come up with own origami designs. Don’t forget the book store, buy age specific books. Stock up on some subject specific work books. If the kid shows disinterest in narrative writing, buy books with illustrations or pictorial representations. And most importantly allow him to choose his collection; do not force your intellect on him. Also, allow him to stack up some snacks that he loves, irrespective of their health value. Let them experience some independence from the daily monotonous lifestyle they follow during normal days.

Kid’s work station

Prepare a small corner in the house which the kids could be free to use in whatever way they want to without the fear of being reprimanded for messing up.

Value Building

Our Kids are so used to the luxuries of life and the concentrated nuclear families that they hardly are aware of the values like charity and sharing. They find it so difficult to adapt and adjust when put in a new atmosphere. Plan a trip with your kid to an orphanage or old age home. Ask him to form a group in the society where you reside and go collecting old clothes. It may not be appreciated by many parents but it is a great way to expose them to charity. Give them a letter signed by all parents mentioning the facts as to where the donations would go. There are many NGOs who could collect it from your doorstep. Old age homes could be the window to the value that being nice and sharing could cheer up so many faces. It would also help them to inculcate the value of respecting the elders.
