Think about your children. They have grown so much in just a few years and they are asking more questions than ever before. They want to experiment and learn about the world and about themselves. They are at that age when everything is new and fascinating. They feel the need to touch everything around them and they are not afraid of doing so. Remember that cactus they joyfully grabbed onto with both hands? Yep, we’ve been there too.
That innate curiosity is a gift to be cherished and cultivated. You need to prepare for this phase of insatiable curiosity with the right tools. As a parent, you are probably already bombarded with more ideas than you know what to do with but very little is said in terms of how to fit those ideas into your daily routine. We get it. You just want to be the best parents you can be and make sure you are raising decent human beings. You want them to be resilient and prepared for adulthood and to for that they need a strong moral and academic foundation. That’s where we come in. We want to turn some of your learning time at home into an experience you and your children will remember fondly.
Ideally, the need to explore and learn about the world around them won’t go away anytime soon. This learning adventure should be encouraged so that it becomes a lifelong habit rather than a warm but distant childhood memory. So, let’s turn off the TV for a second and turn on a different kind of fun. But, how do you go about doing this in a world where attention is ephemeral?
After thousands of hours of research and hundreds of prototypes and focus groups we arrived at a recipe for engaging your children’s innate explorer. These steps apply to the first box in Know Yourself educational series. It focuses on helping children learn and discover the five senses. This is the first box that you will receive when you subscribe to the Know Yourself educational series.
First of all, make sure your children know what to expect, unless you want this to be a surprise, in which case you can move on to the second step. Kids enjoy a surprise just as much as a reward for achieving their goals. In some cases, you can link the monthly arrival of the box to an academic or behavioral goal that you are working towards with your son or daughter.
Mark your calendar and either open the box with your children or make sure to be ready to listen to their discoveries. I can assure you, there will be many since the box is filled with over 12 activities they can use and reuse. There’s also a limited edition Time Skater comic!
Your children will put up a show for you and here are a few pieces of the included in the first box:
The Know Yourself universe is filled with exciting adventures. But even more exciting are the characters that go on them! Known as the Time Skaters, each of the six members have super powers related to one of the five senses.
