Teaching Kids Through Games

Seriously if you teach your kids from books cover to cover the tendency is they will get bored and inattentive. However, if you let your kids learn while they play, they will enjoy at the same time remember things you planted to their minds.

There are variety of old time favorite games. For my preschooler I like playing games that is educational. Whether it could be outdoors or indoor games, I make it a point that they are not just playing but learning as well. When the weather is dull we just play inside the house with board games, puzzles and building blocks. Allowing them to differentiate colors, exercise their minds to counting and reasoning. When we were at the park we usually kick balls, jumping ropes, slides, swing and touch games like a typical kids do. But I let them do the counting and give them a set of time. In this way I am not just training their counting ability but implementing a stop or time over rule. Kids should learn when to stop when you say stop or the game is over and it is time to clean up and prepare to go home. On our way home learning still continues, because I let them play a guessing game or a word relay game. Verbal games is good for their listening, speaking and reasoning ability.

Kids do love to play all the time, it is normal. Give them your time but don’t just hang out with them, rather make them enjoy. Kids always wants our attention, especially during our busy hours. What I did is to play with them teach them how the games should be, and if I see they are enjoying I started to go back to work. Time to time I check what they did and appreciate them for being good. Because giving them time to think and play alone is also a good practice for them to be responsible.

Above all, when my kids are active and playful I grab the chance to introduce new idea at a time. This is the best time because they are still attentive and aggressive. Don’t miss that chance before their tantrums hits you.

Cool Lego Castle For Your Kids

You couldn’t find a single group of boys and girls around the globe that didn’t want to be brave knights and heroes or royal princes and princesses – it’s just an impossibility. For whatever reason, the medieval ages have always held a romantic view over all of us, young and old, and that continues still to this day. Kids just love all of the excitement and adventure that castles and this time. Has to offer, and when you’re able to let them fully enjoy their playtime with a Lego Castle play set – or the Lego Castle collection – you’re going to be turning loose their creative and imaginative juices like never before.

Lego Legends of Chima Eagles Castle
Hands down one of the biggest play sets that Lego makes, this Lego Castle is going to seriously turn some heads and make you the envy of the neighborhood when your kids are playing with their little friends. Not only does it come complete with a Lego tower and Eagles wing, but it also has three mini figures with all kinds of weaponry and armor, different animals that actually move and attack thanks to the included rip cords – allowing you to have a fever pitched battle for the Lego castle tower.

Lego Monster Fighters Vampire Castle
This my favorite, even bigger than the Lego Castle mentioned above, the Vampires Castle is the kind of incredibly detailed playset that Lego has been known for four decades. Giving you a number of different hidden hideouts, secret rooms, torture chambers, and all other kinds of tricks and treats throughout, you’ll be able to use your Lego mini figures to try and find the vampire living inside and defeat him and his evil henchmen. At over 18 inches high, this is one of the truly incredible Lego Castle products.

Lego DUPLO Princess Ariel Undersea Castle
Not everybody wants to spend their time fighting over the Eagles Tower or trying to vanquish a centuries old vampire – sometimes the girls want to get in on the action as well and play with some of their favorite Disney characters. Nothing beats being able to have a underwater Lego Castle built exactly like the one in The Little Mermaid – except for maybe having your very own Lego Little Mermaid and Flounder to play with in this amazingly detailed play-set.

Lego DUPLO Disney Princess Cinderella’s Castle
But maybe The Little Mermaid is not your little girls favorite of the Disney princesses – perhaps she’s more of a Cinderella girl. Luckily, you’ll be able to give her an exact replica of Cinderella’s Castle constructed entirely out of Lego pieces and including all of the different accessories, furniture, and other little secrets you’ll just have to experience with her in this Disney Lego Castle.

Lego Castle Medieval Market Village

As we all know – and as more and more kids are finding out – castles were very rarely just these stone structures somewhere up on a hill. There was almost always a medieval town and village that was constructed just outside the castle walls, supporting all of the people who worked and lived in the surrounding area. Now you’ll be able to have that same kind of exciting hustle and bustle around your Lego Castle two, with this massive Lego made evil market Village. Complete with all different kinds of shops and figurines – as well as three different buildings inspired by classical European architecture – this will really make your Lego Castle come alive.
