School and learning can be fun. It really can be. That might be a tough sell to make to your kids as you're trying to teach them about math or science in your home. No kid believes that learning can be fun. If you want to have your kids learn and have fun at the same time, then you're going to have to put a little work into it.
There are a lot of educational games out there that are a whole lot of fun. Playing them won't even seem like there's any learning going on. Something like the game Number Munchers will have your children learning about basic math skills in a way that is more inviting to them. Who doesn't want to have fun while learning? Skills kids learn through a game like Number Munchers at any early age can be used down the line when they're applying for their first mortgage loan.
Science is another subject just prime for having fun while learning. Many kids learn at a young age their love for science through science experiments. There are so many wild and weird science experiments that can be conducted that kids don't even think of them as learning. Pretty much anything can be used in a science experiment. An old training manual can be used as part of a science experiment to make paper helicopters.
Boom! The Power Of Rhythm demonstrates how your company or group can benefit from their team building sessions. This experiment has proved very successful for many companies and schools over the past 25 years.
Kids love building things and putting things together with their own hands. You can see the wheels spinning in their head when you tell them to make you something. They want to do it. Why not try to teach them something at the same time? Instead of sitting there, reading your brochure while they're off experimenting on their own, you should educate them on what's happening. If you explain to them how an experiment works while they're doing it, it will go a long way in aiding their growth.
Take any household item you can find and do some science experiments with your kids. Your hair remover could be used to measure expandability, paper clips can be used to test out radio waves, chocolate can be used to test out melting conditions, vinegar and baking soda can be used to make erupting volcanoes, etc. All those science experiments are easy, fun, and can be done within the house.
