4 Awesome Things for a Great Kids Summer Experience


Have you ever thought of creating a summer experience for your kids? Kids can be learning valuable skills while having the time of their life with a little forward planning and creative, parental involvement.

1. Communicating in a multicultural community
Do your kids have friends at school or nearby that are from a different cultural background. Odds are that they do with Australia being having a gorgeous diversity of people. Learning a language is much easier when you are a child and can be a lot of fun – especially when you reinforce language classes with other activities like:

Practice with a friend that already speaks the language;
Research online about the country(s) where the language is spoken;
Watch videos in the language being learnt;
Eat food from that country for a taste of the culture.

2. Getting into the music groove
Learning music starts with understanding the beat and that can start at any age. If your kid is a bit older, lessons with an instrument that they love are a great idea for the summer holidays. Other activities that can surround music include:

Going to outdoor concerts in the parks – check your local area for things that are on or make it a special trip into the city for a fun, musical day out;
Set up a backyard practice area in a tent or makeshift ‘studio’. Encourage them to put up posters or pictures that are music related;
Invite their friends over and make homemade instruments. They can have a ‘jam’ session in the practice tent and you can record or even video it to share. Encourage them to dress up for even more giggles.

3. Dance like no one is watching
Learn to dance at a young age and you will never be self-conscious as an adult – or probably not! Dancing is fun and a natural expression of our body movement. Besides, who can stop themselves dancing when their favourite music comes on?

If your children love to dance, have them attend a class where they can learn more and meet others kids with the same passion. Fun dancing activities can include:

A kiddy dance party, if it’s a nice day have it outside in the backyard. Invite friends or dance classmates. Have some decorations (making these can be another activity), some snacks and drinks to fuel their energy. You can be DJ and have lots of fun while the kids are dancing the afternoon away;
Encourage kids to choreograph their own dance. Get them to dress up and video it to share.


4. A Picasso is born
If your child loves to draw they will love art classes where they can learn about colour, form and texture. You can support their classes with fun activities like:

A trip to the park, city or beach with a sketch pad to draw what they see;
A trip to a local art gallery to see the masters;
Invite friends over and they can complete portraits of each other.
These are just some of the ideas that we have thought of, the list of possibilities is endless.

What age is the best to start learning music?


Kids are curious about creating from an early age. Almost from the time that they become aware of their surroundings they are discovering the why, where and how of the world. So when they show an interest in music at what age will they benefit from participating in a formal class?

Getting kids started

Up until the age of around three, expose your child to a variety of things. Play them different kinds of music, encourage them to move to the sounds, and help them to develop their natural appreciation and rhythm.

At this age it is more about exposing kids to different things so they can develop what they like and perhaps have a talent for. This gives you an opportunity to spend time with your child as a parent whilst helping them to learn informally.

Beginning formalised classes

Children at the age of three can begin generalised classes. Sign them up for music classes that are generalised and not about learning to play an instrument, as most don’t have the motor skills, but more about recognising beats and melodies and understanding what the different instruments are.

Focused learning

Between the age of five to ten, kids can learn to play their preferred instrument (as long as it is not too big for them physically). The idea at this age is for them to become familiar with music rather than to become a brilliant performer.

After the age of ten, they are physically stronger and have the ability to build on the skills that they have already learned to improve the way that they play their instrument.

What class to choose?

We have heard the stories of kids being forced to learn things that they don’t enjoy, some of us have even been in that position ourselves. Children love to explore, especially at a young age. Ideally, let them investigate a range of things in a fun way.

They are learning an array of motor and problem solving skills as they are discovering different ways to create so it is never a waste of time when you invest in your child’s learning.

If they show interest in learning a particular instrument, organise introductory classes for them before making a considerable investment of time and money.

Making learning fun

Fun is an important part of learning music and children need the encouragement to develop a natural affinity. Incorporate music into fun activities when they are young. As they transition into formalised learning search for a teacher that your child can relate to and has a teaching style that encourages your child to progress and learn more.

When did your child start learning music?

5 Things To Do on the Day of the Exam

Everyone has those nervous butterflies zipping around in their insides on the day of the exam, but when you have just minutes before the teacher distributes the exam paper, what else can you do to make sure you will do your absolute best? It is already the day of the exam, so there's nothing you can do, right? But, the day of the test is not too late to engage in some helpful activities that will increase your score on an exam.


1. Prepare Physically.

On the day of the test, head to the restroom before you ever get to class. You will not perform your best if you need to use it. Get a drink of water so thirst isn't on your mind, either. Eat a breakfast that involves brain food! Exercise, even if that is a simple walk around the block in the morning before you get to school.

Prepare yourself physically before you take your exam, so your body isn't zing-zonging messages to your brain that will distract you. Nothing says, "Poor score" like a hungry belly growling during testing time, or restless legs itching to get up and move. Take care of yourself first so your brain is functioning at its best.


2. Review The Facts.

Go through your review sheet or flashcards one last time before putting them away. Your eyes may glimpse some small fact that you didn't really get the previous nights you were studying, and that small detail could show on the test. Glancing through your notes, handouts and study guide may be just what you needed to remember it.


3. Calm Down.

Before you test, you need to take steps to overcome your test anxiety, and there are several things you can do on the day of the test to help you get there. Allowing yourself to get anxious about your exam will not help you score your highest; in fact, anxiety can actually decrease your score because your brain will be working hard to calm you down instead of trying to remember what it was that you learned. So take some calming breaths and relax. You'll be just fine if you have prepared yourself!


4. Flex Those Muscles.

And I'm not talking about flexing metaphorically. I do mean flex your actual muscles. No, you don't have to do the whole, "Which way to the gym?" bicep flex, although I'm sure it is a wonder to behold. Instead, complete some focused muscle relaxation. Just clench and unclench your muscles one by one. Start with your hands, then calf muscles and quads. Flex and release any muscle group you can from your desk. By bunching and releasing your muscles, you will rid yourself of any remaining anxiety leftover from your calming activities before.


Don’t stress, do your best, forget the rest! All the best of luck!!
