Learning through creativity

There is nothing greater to me than my kids doing what they love and growing in it.

Matthew has got a big love for building models and doing paper crafts. Oh and let us not forget about Lego.

As parents we try and  encourage our kids to do the things they love to do and also learn more from what they love. As many would call it interest driven learning.

So how would they learn by building models?

They not only learn more about creativity, but also concentration skills. They learn about different countries (geography), the history of buildings and regions and much more. For our home school the biggest advantage is that they remember what they learn.
Here is some of  Matthew's creations.

Let's not forget about Makayla and her wonderful creative mind. She is always busy making some kind of arty object or trying to make some new clothes for Barbie. Currently her heart is set on cake decorating. We have got the first issue of Cake Decorating and we subscribed to the upcoming issues.

Watch this space for pictures of her delicious creations.

So go ahead and get your kids busy. Happy creating :)
