Fun activities for older children to get involved in
Activities for Older Children
Every kid loves to search for treasure with a treasure map! You can do this both inside and outside no matter what the weather!Put some small coins, jewellery, candy or toys into a small container. Decide where the treasure will be hidden. You don’t have to bury it just make sure it is well hidden yet visible. Make sure the map looks old by crumpling up paper and painting it with an old tea bag. After it dries draw on the map and its landmarks. don’t tell the kids about the treasure hunt, instead leave the map where they can find it. Then watch the fun as they realise they are going on a treasure hunt!
RESEARCH HOW CHILDREN LIVE IN OTHER COUNTRIES
Assign each student/child a country. Get them to research how children live in that country and compare it to their own lives. Share findings with classmates.
TALK ABOUT CHILDREN'S RIGHTS
Children’s rights includes their right to association with both parents, human identity as well as the basic needs for physical protection, food, universal state-paid education, health care, and criminal laws appropriate for the age and development of the child, equal protection of the child’s civil rights, and freedom. Let’s discuss all these topics!
FORM A CHILDREN'S DAY PROJECT TEAM
Invite children from different classes to form a Children’s Day project team. This group can brainstorm activities for the school to celebrate Children’s Day, talk at community forums, or discuss ways to get the whole community involved in the celebrations. Then make it happen!
