As we get ready to welcome a new year, it’s the perfect time to also roll out the red carpet for new activities for our children. When the hustle and bustle and excitement of the holiday season is over, children can have something to look forward to as you introduce them to new activities that could turn into their favorite hobbies.

We’re going to explore why it’s so important for kids to try new things as well as what MakerKids has to offer children of all ages in 2024.

The Importance of Children Trying New Things

Beat Boredom

We all know how easily kids get bored. Why not beat boredom with new activities? By introducing a new activity, children can explore new ideas and have the chance to ask questions. As they learn a new skill, they can use their creativity to expand ideas and see where they go.

Boosts Confidence

If you want to see your child’s confidence soar, introduce them to a new activity. As they learn new skills and how to master them, they will become more confident. This confidence will then radiate in all aspects of their lives. Whether they’re in the classroom or with their friends, they’ll feel more confident and want to try even more new things!

Stirs Creativity

When kids try something new, an entirely new world is being opened up to them. They are seeing and doing things they’ve never done before. This can stir their creativity as they learn the ins and outs of how to master their new activity. They may even be challenged to solve problems and learn to work with others. These are also skills that they will carry with them throughout their lives.

Kick off the New Year with New Activities at MakerKids

MakerKids offers many fun and engaging activities for kids to try in the new year. We offer coding, robotics, and Minecraft courses for children in grades 3-8. Our classes are not only a great way to beat boredom, but also an excellent way for kids to keep busy during the winter months. If Mother Nature is going to keep them inside, why not allow them to learn a new skill?

In our coding classes, kids will learn everything needed to code their own game. From character development to beta testing, we have it covered.

If your child has more of an interest in robotics, we teach children how to use online simulator technology to make electronic creations like wire solutions, as well as learn how to make lights light up. New for 2024, our robotics program is introducing 3D printing. This is another exciting skill that can open up new worlds for your children.

You can’t forget our Minecraft courses where your child’s interest in Minecraft helps to introduce them to other STEM topics like robotics and coding. At MakerKids, there are so many new topics for children to learn and master!

If you’re interested in introducing any of these amazing topics to your child now or at the start of the new year, contact us at 416-385-3577 or online. Try something new!
