Five Indoor Games for Kids to Beat the Lockdown! Since the country was put on lockdown due to the dangerous CO

Five Indoor Games for Kids to Beat the Lockdown! Since the country was put on lockdown due to the dangerous COVID-19 virus, schools and day centres have been closed. With children being at home all the time, parents are constantly worried about the children’s wellbeing. Besides the need to home-school them, children also have to be kept entertained. Naturally, they can be allowed to play games on the phone or watch videos on the phone or tablet or see cartoons on the television for a limited time due to the harmful effects the same has. So how to kill time at home without causing any harm? We present to you five indoor games for kids to beat the lockdown. 1.Do-it-yourself Balancing Beam: Kids find joy in walking in straight lines. So why not create a balancing beam within the house on your own?! All you need for this activity is coloured tape (The more, the better) and ample space to play (this could be your hall or drawing room). In the empty space of your house, stick the length of a tape in a straight or curved line. Now put on some fun music while you and your child take turns to walk one foot over another across the length of the tape. You can make the game more interesting by asking the child to walk backwards or with one hand on head or balance with one foot only on the line. 2. Hide and Seek: We cannot make a list of the best indoor games for a child to play without adding hide and seek to the list. A cult favourite of even parents back when they were kids, the game consists of one person covering the eyes and counting out loud while the others hide. The child who covers the eyes has to look for all the others who are now hidden somewhere. The last person to be found is the next person who has to take turns to find the ones hiding. While children play hide and seek, make sure no items are lying around the house that can harm the child. 3.Indoor Bowling: Bowling? Inside the house? Doesn't it sound fun already? All you need for this activity is some empty plastic bottles and a plastic ball bigger than the size of a tennis bowl. Create your bowling alley in the house by setting up lines of bottles. Now the child has to use the plastic ball to strike the bottles and make the maximum of them fall. 4.Indoor Obstacle Course: Create an obstacle course for the child in the area of the house itself. This obstacle course can be made spanning across various rooms. Create an area where the child has to target and throw balls into a bucket. Follow this with a lane where the child has to run, followed by a small fence-like structure made out of pillows on which the child has to balance himself/herself, followed by the child having to crawl below a chair or table ending with an area where they have to jiggle or dance. The possibilities are endless. Add a timer and let the fun game begin 5. Sock Toss: This is a great activity to sharpen a child’s gross motor skills as well as teach him/her how to aim. For this activity, all you need is a huge bucket or a cloth hamper and some socks. Roll up the socks to form a ball and place the basket/bucket/cloth hamper feet or two away (Depending on the age as well as the height of your child) and ask him or her to aim and manage to throw the sock ball into the basket/bucket/cloth hamper. You can make the game more interesting by moving a step back each time a sock is successfully thrown. Take turn throwing and the person with the maximum number of successfully thrown sock balls win. Shanti Juniors Preschool request parents not to dread such situations because they are not sure of what to do. But why not make the most out of the situation? Use the lockdown as an opportunity to spend some quality time with your children and enhance the parent-child bonding. We promise you, you won’t regret it.

How to Teach Day and Night to Preschoolers! Children are inquisitive souls. You will be amazed at the question

How to Teach Day and Night to Preschoolers! Children are inquisitive souls. You will be amazed at the questions they can ask at times. While growing up, amongst the most common questions is the question of why there are day and night. Most parents are baffled at this question. How could you possibly explain why there is a day and why there is night? Well, we are here to answer it and make explaining the same to your child easier. Let’s begin, shall we? The concept of day and night is one of the important things that we should teach a preschooler. It is the first step in introducing children to the concept of calendars, time, and tracking of time. The day is when the sun can be seen from where we are and its heat, as well as light, can reach us. Whereas the night is when the sun cannot be seen, the sky is dark and light, as well as heat from the sun, cannot reach us. By teaching preschoolers about the concept of day and night, we can get them interested in science. You can also explain how the sun might seem like its moving. But in reality, the sun is steady, and it is the earth that is moving. The next comes the moon and the stars. Take a blanket and head to your terrace, spread it out, lie down with your child, and show him/her the stars and the moon. Explain how the sun gives so much light because it is closer to the earth whereas, the moon and stars are relatively far. Further, explain how the moon like the sun revolves around the earth, but it takes almost a month to complete its spin, which results in shapes of the moon. So, the moon may look like a ball on a day of a full moon while on other days, the shape may be due to the moon phase. You can also tell children how all the stars have different intensities of brightness; and how the sun is itself a star. Three activities that can be used to teach about day and night to children are mentioned below: 1. Take two balls, one bigger and one smaller and show children how if the bigger ball which is the sun is steady, and the smaller ball being the planet earth moves, then only one part of the smaller ball faces the sun while the other doesn’t. Thus there is a day where the sun faces the earth and night where it doesn’t. 2. Plant seeds in two separate pots and expose one to sunlight while the other is not exposed. Ask children to monitor the growth of the seed and the affect sunlight has on the plant. Use this opportunity to explain the importance of sunlight for plants to grow. 3. Ask children to draw white stars on a black paper. Further, ask children to paint the paper with yellow colour. As the crayon resists the paint, the white stars will stand out. Explain how the sky looks different at night as compared to day time using this activity. We, at Shanti Juniors have discovered a unique methodology after intense research based on children’s response to the surrounding environment. I-Cube Learning Ladder (Inquiry, Interaction & Innovation) is a teaching process practised at Shanti Juniors which inspires 4Cs (Curiosity, Confidence, Creativity & Continuity) in a Child. For admission, you can call on 9979666660 or you can visit Shanti Juniors Preschool near you after Lockdown gets over.

Teaching Indian Values to Preschoolers! Indian culture is the amalgamation of all beautiful things. But; the most precious among all these things is the abundance of values. Instilling values from an early age are instrumental in shaping a child’s character, and personality as the values instilled at an early age stays with the children for the rest of their lives. Mentioned below are seven Indian values that every preschooler should be taught: 1. Love for Family: Family is a gift that lasts forever. With the company of the family, troubles become easier to bear, and happiness is doubled. Family means having someone to stand by you in all difficult times no matter what. Children should be taught the importance of family from the beginning so that their love for their family keeps on growing. 2. A Religious Spirit: Children should be given religious information so that they can learn lessons that religion teaches. But more important than that is to teach them that all religions are important, that no religion is bigger than the other. 3.Honesty: We all teach our children that honesty is the best policy. But we should also teach our children that if they lie about something once, they will have to speak numerous lies to cover the first lie. While with honesty, they can state things as they are and even though it might briefly be upsetting at times if their parents find out what mistake their child made, the parents will appreciate the honesty of the child. 4. Respect: Respect is one of the greatest virtues of Indian culture. Children must be taught to be respectful not just towards elders but also towards those who are younger than them. Because, if children want to be respected, they have to respect others. But respect has to be earned. 5: A Helping Nature: Children should be made to understand that a helping nature is integral in life. This means children should be taught to help their siblings with their homework, parents in the housework, as well as friends in anything they require help in. Besides that, children should be taught to help the needy by giving them food, donating clothes as well as toys. Animals need help too. Children can help animals by giving them water in summers, providing shelter in rains or harsh winters and giving them food whenever it is possible. We at Shanti Juniors believes in being equal partners with parents in the journey of nurturing and educating children during their most crucial tender years. It is for this very reason that we have struck a balance between modern teachings and Indian values so that children stay true to their roots always. At Shanti Juniors preschool, a child learns Sanskaar (values) through which s/he becomes Saakshar (educated) and ultimately the child becomes capable, Saksham i.e. to contribute in his/her surroundings. Hence, we say – Yahaan Shanti Juniors mein Sanskaar, Saakshar aur Saksham se hota hai bacchhon ka sampoorna vikas!

There is a myriad of activities that can be done with children, but what to do when you have checked off everything on that list of things to do?! Why not snuggle in and watch a movie with your preschooler! To help you choose the perfect movie to watch with your child, we compiled a list of five all-time favourite movies for preschoolers. They are: 1.The Lion King: A movie that has the entire jungle kingdom is an instant favourite for preschoolers. The movie has lion cub Simba who wants to follow his father’s paw prints and rule over the land by leading their pride. But upon his father’s untimely death, Simba runs away on being tricked by his evil uncle who wants to rule over the land too. Later in life when Simba grows up, he must fight back to take what is his. In this journey, he has some faithful and unlikely friends who help him at every step. We promise you, your kids will love this movie! 2.Wall-E: This movie is a brilliant way to teach children about the need to protect the environment. Wall-E is the last robot on planet Earth whose main job is to pick up the leftover trash but the space adventure takes an interesting turn when he meets another female robot named Eve. The movie has very few dialogues in the first half which makes it easy for children to understand the movie. 3.The toy story series : Toys that can talk and move like normal humans in a story will be a forever beloved movie for children. The movie begins with the introduction of a little boy named Andy and his favourite toys. Trouble begins when Andy receives a new toy and the other toys then get jealous. But they all must stick together to be successful in their pursuit of going with Andy as he moves into a new house. 4.The Incredibles: The evergreen movies for preschoolers would obviously be incomplete without a superhero movie right?! The movie has Mr Incredible living his regular dull life as the government has banned all his superpowers. But he has one last mission to complete which is to defeat a power-hungry robot. But when trouble comes, he will need his family to succeed in the mission. The movie besides teaching children how good wins over evil, also teaches the importance of family and how to work as one team. 5.The Harry Potter series: Though this movie is perceived as an early introduction for children, it is not the case. The movie is the ideal way to introduce children to the world of magic. It follows the story of Harry, a boy as he grows up in the magical world and his journey as a wizard. Accompanied by friends like family, Harry’s journey is divided into seven parts. The movie is based on the famous Harry Potter series by J.K.Rowling so you can read the books with your children too! The Harry Potter series is a world in itself, something your child will hold with him throughout his/her life. The movie is loved by both children and adults alike. So, what are you waiting for?! Grab some popcorn and snacks, close the curtains, cozy up and watch movies with your little one!
