Putting The Pieces Together

Summer is definitely here! It is so hot during the day time and we can not go outdoors to play even if we want to because of the scorching heat! My kids want to ride their bike and scooter but we can only do that late in the afternoon to avoid sun burn and heat stroke.

So how do I keep them busy at home? Aside from watching videos, I make sure we do some arts and crafts. We also do a lot of reading. We also play games and puzzles. Recently, I noticed that my son loves to put puzzle pieces together so we bought him some new puzzles to play with. I was astonished to see that he can put the pieces together easily and that he was able to actually finish the puzzle. I am a puzzle fanatic myself and I am glad that my son has developed some sort of perseverance on his own – to finish the puzzle.
I believe that putting puzzle pieces together increases one’s determination and focus on doing something. It also helps the hand and eye coordination of a person. Aside from that, it is also a good family bonding activity!

    Giving our kids a task to keep them busy can also save our energies too as parents. Buy playing a puzzle or letting them indulge in our home cooking give our child a chance to develop their intellectual capabilities. It will also add to their self-confidence when we let them do whatever they want because that's the time they can gain a sense of independence.

    The amount and direction of spin would decide how the ball will bounce off the floor or backboard or even the rim.It would also be used by a team mate to catch the ball. All would also put drag on the ball, which is also friction. Even air movement could cause it. Think about playing outside on a windy day to indoors on a court.
