Ideas For Stimulating Your Kids – FREEBIE Inside!

07 Feb 2018

I don’t know about you, but as a mom, I find the amount of content out there for our kids – quite frankly – overwhelming. Gone are the days of a finite to do list, where feeding, changing, playing outside and reading a story pretty much meant a job well done on the child-rearing front.

Content overload

Every day, we’re uncovering more research about the importance of ECD (Early Childhood Development), and with so many resources at our disposal, it’s hard to feel like we’re not falling short on how we choose to stimulate our kids each day. And so the dreaded Mom Guilt rears its judgmental head again….

This year, I am all about Minimalism, looking for any way possible to increase quality of life and decrease that nagging list of daily to do’s. (I’ve been talking about this topic quite a lot in my series of #LoveYourselfEnough blogs, in honour of the month of love.) One way to do this is to identify areas where you can outsource responsibilities to the pros to free up a little more time of your own to conquer what you’re good at.

Outsourcing to the experts

I stumbled upon Kids Book Club, and fell in love with this adorable concept that helps stimulate your kids with stories, props and age-appropriate activities. Immediately, I recognized that this was going to take one regular mom-hack off my plate, so I jumped at the chance to try it out. Kids Book Club delivers carefully selected age-appropriate books, activity packs and cute goodies to your little one every month. We know how excellent reading is for little ones, but who has the time to sift through book shops and online stores for the right kind of content, age appropriate words and pictures? Kids Book Club leaves it up to the experts, and delivers the perfect items to your door so you have one less thing to worry about..

It’s pretty simple too:

  • You pick the age group that suits your little one. (There are discounts for multiple kiddies.)
  • Select the budget that works for you – there are three options to choose from, with pricing options including R159, R189 or R289 p/m.
  • Get your items delivered to you after the 15th of every month, and enjoy exploring the stories and activities with your little ones – handpicked to stimulate them according to their ages and capabilities.

Great, right?

These are gorgeous little stories, fresh concepts and pictures, suitable yet stimulating activities and just overall gift-like goodies to share with your little ones. Instead of wasting time sourcing stimulating content for your kids, you can spend more hours sitting down with them and exploring it together. You can also upgrade to more advanced content as your kiddies grow.

Tried and tested

So what did Bella think about her first drop of Kids Book Club goodies? Well, this delivery came with two adorable and interactive animal books that she just loved. The little jungle book had tabs for Bella to pull on that revealed the animal being referenced – she couldn’t get enough of this! Then, she had an absolute ball with the little ‘Garden Route’ landscape and the stickers that could be plopped onto this landscape at Bella’s will, to create an adorable little scene of garden, hills, animals and people. The colouring in tools, animal pictures and little activities (a little maze and join-the-dots exercise), also went down a treat. The activities were also challenging for Bella, which is great. How will you know how capable your kids are if you don’t present them with opportunities to test themselves?
