Hoopla with your child!

April 30, 2016

Being busy all through the academic year, wading through the school routines, engaged with the school related activities such as home tasks, projects, exams and many more keep children’s brain active and ready to perceive more and more.

As the summer vacation sets in, a large percentage of children get relaxed and get involved with screen to such an extent that they lose interest in most of the learning activities they were much interested before.

This results in children experiencing learning loss which will affect their performance graph when the academic year starts.

In addition to academic risks, children can also be at an increased risk of weight gain if they are not active during the summer months.

So, as parents, we take on the challenge of keeping our children physically busy and mentally active during long summer days. Summer is the perfect time to let your child’s imagination run wild and stimulate creativity.

We, the team @ Sproutz,  is taking an initiative to provide you some ideas to relevantly engage your children during the summer months…
