Struggling to keep the kids away from the TV this winter? Maybe it’s time that they ‘unplug’.
Growing up in a digital age, kids are more connected than ever and it can be tricky to come up with fresh, fun ideas to keep them busy.
We know that it’s a battle to keep them away from the screens, the rainy weather and never ending list of chores can make it all too tempting to pop on their favourite movie and face the mammoth day ahead.
Mums, It’s time to prise the children away from the TV. We’ve gathered our favourite activities to keep them entertained for hours on end, whilst benefiting their learning and development.
For your Future Mathematician
Traditional toys allow for a hands-on experience and offer a level of interaction that cannot be gained from digital games. The BRIO Abacas with Clock offers a playful way to introduce numbers and counting to your little ones, available to buy from Leo & Bella and Robins Nest.
For your Future Architect
As your children start to develop, there are a number of ways that you can help to creatively build and develop their problem solving skills.
Building blocks allow your children to explore through new sensory experiences; watch as they turn them over and explore the different shapes, colours and sounds or let them build them up and knock them down again. Recently nominated by Mother and Baby Magazine in their annual awards, BRIO’s Sensory Blocks are a must-have this winter. You can find them here.
For your future Story-teller
We all know that children are some of the most incredible storytellers, so it’s vital to nurture their growing imagination from a young age.
Traditional toys such as BRIO encourage children to create a miniature world through expanding building packs. Toys with connecting worlds create a rich playing experience, encouraging children to use their imagination and share their experience with others, further developing their communication skills. Let them create the world as they want it, and reinvent it tomorrow with BRIO Deluxe Railway Set. Pick up yours this winter: http://bit.ly/2s2AJeq
