As the school term ends, some parents have no idea how to keep their kids busy over the holiday period.
Creative parenting expert Nikki Bush explains that it is a great time to connect with children.
She suggests that parents use the holidays as an opportunity to observe their children at play.
Watch them, see how they do things and almost listen to how their minds are working.— Nikki Bush, Creative parenting expert
Nikki Bush says parents should do the following:
- create an open 'play space' for your kids and allow them to freely use all their toys for several days
- provide a variety of toy sets for your kids to explore without restriction or order
- set a day where there needs to be 'tidying up' of that space
Bush advises that this will allow young children to tap into their creativity and imagination.
It's all make believe and imagination.— Nikki Bush, Creative parenting expert
