The Bright Stuff
In need of ideas to entertain and educate your child? This one's for you.
Where can I get it? Kalahari.netWhat we thought:
As someone who works a lot with children and is constantly in need of new activities and games, this book was a goldmine. It focuses on fostering creativity, curiosity, independent thinking, perseverance, determination, individuality and problem-solving skills in your child.
Sure, they learn a lot through the school syllabus, but how much of your child's potential remains untapped? Now you can do something about it. The games in the book are designed to fit in with everyday family life, and what makes them extra useful is that they can be used to keep your children amused in the queue at Pick 'n Pay, on long car drives or during a family meal.
Not only are the activities fun, they are also specifically designed to nurture important skills and traits that will help your child excel. Through creative thinking they will learn to come up with innovative ideas all on their own and with regular practice will soon start to see the positive results.
Although it is written primarily for parents of children in primary school, I found my own thinking was stimulated by some of the exercises. It just goes to show, you're never too old to learn!
