Kids playing electronics … it’s time to play something else


  • It is a challenge to keep kids occupied – especially when they are home from school.
  • So unfortunately, many kids turn to the electronics that keep them away from building imaginary minds and creative skills:
    INFO: nurturing creativity & imagination for child development
  • Well lets change that – by building a playroom in the basement where they can play, build, and be the child again that you solely miss.
  • A play room with table and chairs – toys – a chalk board for creative drawing – and whatever they need to explore the imagination and time to play.

Your reading nook should covert to an activity


  • Following reading and e-time, maybe a fun table activity in the drawing area.
  • A place where they can color – paint – and create with building blocks whatever comes into their imagination.
  • Layout the playroom if the basement area permits, section off areas that can function as the reading nook – the activity table – school room and more. It will give our children multiple options that can occupy their time that can build creative behavior. What comments can you share?
