I’m not great at thinking of activities to do with my little kids. I want to do fun things with them, but just have a hard time coming up with activities. I can do elementary school ages with being an Elementary Education Major and I’ve worked a lot with teenagers, but Pre-K is where I’m a little lost!
I’ve complained to my husband that I just need some ideas without having to go through a million pins on pinterest. And one day he found the answer…
He texted me and said, “You have to download this app right now!” And he was so right!
I love Knoala!
Knoala is an app dedicated to help you come up with creative activities and play time with your kids. When you sign up (and it’s free!) it asks you your kid(s) ages and then shows you the activities that are relevant to that specific age. So with having two small children I can switch back and forth between the activities that they would like.
At the bottom of each activity it tells you what skills your child will learn, how many people have done it and liked it, and you can submit pictures of the things you’ve done for others to see. It’s great to see how you can do variations on each activity.
I also love the bookmark feature. When I find something I want to do with my girls, I bookmark it so I can refer back to it later. And you can submit your own activities! How awesome is that? And besides the activities, it also has videos for your kids to watch and story starters to help you think of fun stories to tell your kids.
Here are my current bookmarks.
On Monday I knew it was going to be a stay home day. So I picked two of the activities from Knoala to do: Go on a Safari and Name Puzzle. Both are Kami’s age, but I figured Clo could join along. And it was great! They had so much fun playing and really got into the creative play! And they even got along most of the time. So constructive play helped my kids be happier together.
Looking for wild animals.
Jumping on “rocks” so we didn’t fall in the water. Clo decided to collect the animals when we found them.
Name Puzzle. I put the letters in Kami’s name around the living room. She loved finding them and putting them on her poster!
When Alan came home from work, Kami told him all about how we looked for wild animals and ran away from them and fell in the water. (All part of the imagination that came from my 2 year old). It was great to hear how excited she was and she wanted to play it again that night and the next day.
So if you need some fun ideas to do with your kids, definitely download Knoala right now! And like I said, it’s free! So why not give it a try?
