3 Rules of Christmas: Don’t Overwhelm Kids With Too many Gifts

Recent figures show that parents spend, on average, $330 on Christmas gifts per child – a figure that can be crippling for some families and, one which often leads to out of budget expenses. 

As advertising and marketing continues to grow, so does consumerism and the result is: unnecessary stacking of material objects. Many children wake up on Christmas morning to an overwhelming – and sometimes unnecessary – amount of gifts. 

For young children, the sheer volume of presents to unwrap can enventually suck the excitement out of the big day. The pressure on children to keep up a level of enthusiasm and gratitude can become compulsive and result in a grouchy child acting up on what should be a happy day.

If all that isn’t enough, it also leads to the expectation of excess cycle – if a child receives ten presents this year, he or she might expect the same or more next year; another Dudley Dursley in the making?

It can also cause financial or “setting right expectation in kids” anxiety for parents.

 So, what’s the answer?  Smart presents. If you agree to it, share this article with a friend now!

Before you cry, ‘But all of their family and friends will give a lots of presents,’ hear me out.  I’m not suggesting that you revert back to the olden days where a child would receive nothing more than an orange and a gift box; just that you take a more ‘quality over quantity’ approach to benefit both your wallet and your child.  

Don’t Overwhelm Kids With Too many Gifts

Many parents who have discovered that stocking fillers equal empty wallets are turning to the 3 Gift Rule in order to keep Christmas special and reduce anxiety.  In essence, the 3 Gift Rule seeks to tick three important boxes when it comes to managing children’s expectations.  These three gifts are categorized as:

Something They Want – No doubt your child has spent the last couple of months extolling the virtues of a particular toy, game or piece of tech that they’ve got their eye on.  This is where Something “They Want” comes in.

Something They Need – This middle level gift speaks to items which, although not hugely desirable, are necessary and of significant expense. This gift is useful in instilling in your child the fact that ‘things’ cost money whether they’re necessary or desired.

Something They Read – It should go without saying that every child, however young, will benefit from being introduced to the world of books.  Something “They Read” can cover a child’s first ever storybook through to those expensive textbooks for the college years.

Remind them why they’re celebrating

Whether you’re religious or not, it’s worth using the “3 Gift Rule” as a reminder to children that there is a meaning to Christmas beyond that of a ‘gift grab’.  The tradition of gifting at Christmas is an old one and one which has its roots firmly entrenched in the story of the birth of Jesus Christ.  Traditionally, Christmas gifts would mirror those presented to Jesus by the three wise men; Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh and, some families still choose to model their gifting around these items.  Although you’ll be hard pressed to find Myrrh in Macy’s or your local shopping mart, these precious gifts can be interpreted for the modern world as follows:

Gold – Not to be taken literally, this doesn’t have to be jewellery but, instead, the ‘Something They Want’ item – a gift which your child desires and will treasure.

Frankincense – This is an aromatic resin used for essential oils and is said to have spiritual qualities.  A translation of this gift under the heading ‘Something They Need’ could be an item connected to well being such as a dance, gym or yoga class membership.

Myrrh – A natural resin used as a perfume or anointing oil, Myrrh was said to traditionally represent death.  Although this may seem a grim topic for a gift, this lends itself naturally to ‘Something They Read’ and can take the form of a book about an inspiring leader or adventurer from history.

You don’t, of course, have to follow the three wise men in order to make wise gift choices within the 3 Gift Rule. 

3 Gifts – 3 Valuable Life Lessons

As well as simplifying the gift buying process at this frenzied time of year, the 3 Gift Rule allows parents to have the finance conversation with their children.  Contrary to popular belief, you’re not robbing your child of his or her childhood by letting them know the value of money.  If you haven’t yet had this conversation with your child, the run up to Christmas is the perfect time to do so.  This can have three major benefits as follows:

Making Memories – If you ask your child about their favorite gift from last year, there’s a good chance that they received so much that they’ll struggle to remember.  The 3 Gift Rule allows for more memorable gifts.

Encourage Generosity – For children, Christmas is a time when they, quite naturally, think about themselves and what they want.  It’s also the perfect time to introduce the idea that others are not as fortunate as they are and, to encourage charity and generosity by sacrificing a small gift or two for themselves.

Lessons on budgeting – It’s never too early to explain to children that a splurge now may mean going without something in the future.  Most children will understand the benefit of having a little less for Christmas in order to have an extra treat at other times of the year.

Want, Need, Read (W,N,R)

If this is your first time with the 3 Gift Rule, you may find that you struggle to get started.  The following is my guide to a little 3 Giftspiration:

Something You Want

This is usually the easiest of the three as most children ‘want’ something pretty much all the time. If not,  ideas can include:

      1.  VTech 8-in-1 Kidi Concert in Pink to add a little music to your child’s life.

      2. A Potter Art Workshop for your little wizard

      3. A Build Your Own Toys & Machines for your mini-engineer

Something You Need

It may be that your child has an interest which should be nurtured and, this can be considered to be Something You Need.  Examples include:

  1. A cool rucksack or school bag is a great way of crossing the divide between want and need.
  2. Give the gift of hours of fun with their very own little robot.
  3. STEM and STEAM courses – As well as boosting education and a future career, our STEM and STEAM courses are also great fun for kids. Courses like Electronics For Kids can be the spark that a child needs when finding his or her passion.

Something You Read

Whatever their age, children tend to enjoy stories – particularly those with relatable characters.  Some good examples are:

  1. For your little ones, I’d Really Like To Eat A Child is great fun – and a really good way of introducing books to young children.
  1. Rescue Mission With My STEM Invention is a fun and engaging read for 6-10 year olds and is perfect for inspiring a love of reading.
  1. For older children, The Secret Lake Mysteries is a cracking read and will keep your child gripped until the very last page.

Alternatively, try firing their imagination with a magazine subscription based on their interests.  They’ll enjoy reading these – and will feel terribly important receiving their very own mail!

By cutting down on expensive presents which will be forgotten, you’re certainly not being a Grinch.  You’re being the parent who is determined to keep Christmas memorable and special!

Ideas that Spark Creativity and Curiosity in Kids

Raising creative kids is easier than you may think. Some kids get lost in the wonder of their imaginations easily. Others need a little more prompting.

As parents, we assume that creativity is an inborn talent and that kids either do or do not have it. But, just as all children are not equally intelligent, all children are not equally creative. Creativity is more skill than inborn talent, and parents can help their kids develop it.
Creativity is not limited to artistic and musical expression—it is also essential for science, math, and even social and emotional intelligence. Creative people are more flexible and better problem solvers, which makes them more able to adapt to technological advances and deal with change—as well as take advantage of new opportunities.

Many researchers believe we have fundamentally changed the experience of childhood in such a way that impairs creative development. Toy and entertainment companies feed kids an endless stream of prefab characters, images, props and plot-lines that allow children to put their imaginations to rest. Children no longer need to imagine a stick is a sword in a game or story they’ve imagined: they can play Star Wars with a specific light-saber in costumes designed for the specific role they are playing.
But as a parent, we need to supply them with enough ideas for keeping their curious minds active and engaged.

But how do we get a never-ending ideas reservoir to nourish their creativity? The answer is WIZFLIX: Art & Science Online Courses for Kids.

You can instantly access the complete library with hundreds of creative projects: Drawing Bootcamp, Potter Workshop, Build Your Own Toys and Machines, Watercolor Wizards, Electronics and more!

Best Summer S.T.E.M Activities For Kids

Picture the scene… it’s your average Saturday morning in June. The kids are up early. You haven’t even had your coffee, but they are asking for breakfast. They want to download a new app on the iPad. They want to watch a movie. They want to do a craft that requires multiple how-to videos. They are bickering over what to watch, what to play, who gets to go first, and before you can intervene, they say it in unison: “WE’RE BORED!”

Sound familiar?

Fast forward to July. It’s summer vacation and school is out for the next few weeks.  While we love not having to deal with the hustle and bustle of the school year – the homework, the reading logs, the projects, the extra-curricular activities – the school does give our kids a comfortable routine and a structure to their day and, ahem, gives parents a reprieve from the  Saturday scene above…

Of course you’ll do the Pinterest searches, let them play video games and watch movies; you’ll take trips to the park and the craft store. You’ll listen to the cacophonies of “I’m bored,” “What are we doing today?” and, “ Can we watch Netflix?” You’ll do those things because you’re a great parent – but even the best parents sometimes run out of ideas.

It’s OK. We get it. But this summer, let us help you. Let us help you create an at-home summer camp filled with epic projects that kids will love. And, what if we told you that you could make it educational, too...

We’re not kidding – your summer can be packed with fun stuff that your kids will still be talking about next summer. And you don’t have to spend hours planning and preparation. 

Here’s what we’ve got for you.

Limited time offer! Solve your time management issues and give your kids the perfect summer in one easy step!

5 Advantages of Online Learning

STEM Activities for kids image

 

    1. You can learn whatever you want!

      You can pick the program of your dreams and hone your skills during your free time. It does not call for traveling away from home and struggling in an extremely competitive learning environment. You can pick any subject of your choice and master it.

    2. Comfort.

      Forget about attending classes for hours, sitting in an uncomfortable chair, and suffering from back pain by the end of the day. You will not be bound to a physical class session when you opt for WIZFLIX education. All instructions and needed materials are provided via online platforms, so you’ll easily access them from the comfort of your home.Comfort is a strong advantage, but it can go both ways. You mustn’t allow yourself to get too comfortable when studying from home, so it would be best to abandon the couch for a few hours a day and set up an inspirational environment in your home.

    3. Online courses are great for shy kids.

      Whether you’re at home, on the road or at a friend’s house, you can create your own perfect space to learn from the WIZFLIX courses. You don’t have to put up with any more disruptive environments like crowded libraries. Online learning offers better opportunities to concentrate on not being around other people. You can dedicate one room for quiet study, or if you’re shy, you don’t have to worry about interacting with other students.

    4. Self-paced learning.

      When you start browsing through interesting online courses and programs, you’ll notice the Self-Paced label on most of them. What does this mean? Self-paced learning means that the students can start completing the targets at any time, and he can arrange a learning schedule that meets their individual needs.

    5. Lower costs.


      The fact that online programs are cheaper when compared to the summer camps is enough to convince you to consider them. The average tuition for online courses depends on multiple factors, so it varies from one program to another. WIZFLIX is for $9.99 only, so that’s something you should always keep in mind.
      We saved the best part for last: many online courses are completely free of charge. MIT’s Scratch program for kids is online without any charges. Free courses don’t usually come with a certificate of completion, but they are still more than useful for anyone who wants to learn from prestigious educators.

Sumita has travelled the world to enjoy new experiences and learn more about the world around us. Using her knowledge to create mysteries and adventures designed to stimulate children’s minds and help them gain a better grasp of all relevant fields. STEAM is based on the idea that learning stands to be more effectively when each area is fused into a unified learning model rather than taught individually. The model is based on real-life, practical applications and aimed at increasing engagement with the subjects whilst making them more relatable and encouraging children to think about them in holistic ways.

STEM lessons are usually incredibly exciting, inspiring creative learning and interesting and can include activities such as building models. Parents and teachers are encouraged to provide children with ample opportunities to tinker, invent, explore and partake in cross-contextual learning. Various Governments across the world have announced initiatives to address the shortage of STEM/STEAM experts, such as the former Obama administration’s “Educate to Innovate” campaign, which was launched in 2009. The UK and Germany are just two countries who have expressed concern about the lack of STEM/STEAM professionals available to help children develop their knowledge.

IMPORTANCE OF STEM OR STEAM EDUCATION

STEM or STEAM is an acronym and stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math. Instead of each subject being taught individually and separately at school or home, STEAM aims to fuse them together into a unified learning model, which is also based on real-life, practical applications.

The drive behind STEM is to get more engagement with these subjects, and make it relatable to the world around us. Parents and teachers should help students integrate knowledge across discipline and encourage them to think in a holistic way, when it comes to Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math.

STEAM comes from the growing need and a shortage of individuals and teachers who have expert skills in these fields. Due to this alarming problem in 2009, Obama’s administration decided to launch a nationwide “Educate to Innovate” campaign to encourage and motivate students to do exceptionally well in STEAM-related subjects. This challenge is not unique to USA only; other countries such as the UK and Germany also need to work on increasing their STEAM-skilled pool too.

Usually, STEM focuses on computational thinking, finding solutions and answers to real-life problems and often accentuates learning which is project based. STEM lessons tend to be exciting and interesting and will include making things and building models. It is important that parents and educators give children chances to tinker, invent and explore and participate in cross-contextual learning.
