When filling a long school vacation time, it becomes important for parents to plan a variety of quality activities to build emotional attachment, rather than allowing little to spend the rest of her vacation time playing the gadget.

Often encountered some obstacles faced by parents, such as children who tend to spend more time playing the gadget, while parents are confused to find ideas that fit the activities of their children, but want children to remain productive. According to Ratih, all physical activity can provide stimulation to provoke a response that can train the growth of brain. Especially because it can develop some aspects of children's intelligence, including psychomotor, cognitive, emotional, and psychosocial aspects. "Most importantly, the activities held by parents provide stimulation to complement the life skills provided at school. This is important in the process of character formation of children, "said Ratih.

Well, for the parents, do not worry! Educative activities for the Small do not have to be expensive and difficult, really. Here are four select educational activities that can be done with the Little at home:

1. Drawing using fingers (finger painting)

Invite your Little one to draw with his fingers with natural ingredients in your kitchen. Just use the starch flour and food coloring available, and let the Little be creative while realizing his imagination.

2. Make a doll or figurehead picture of the child (me in a puppet)

You only need paper folding (origami), ice cream sticks, mattress yarn, glue, scissors, and buttons and beads as a sweetener paper doll to be made.
