If you can take a day off work and let your child skip school, they will remember it his entire life.
You can spend some enjoyable time together: take them to the local bookstore and eat their favorite ice cream. But you will need to make it clear that it is an exceptional day.
Just be sure to know they aren’t missing out on anything that day at school.
Reading a tale before bedtime is a good habit to get kids to sleep. However, always reading the same stories can get monotonous.
It is important for kids to have a daily routine but occasionally, small changes in their daily habits can stimulate their brains to think in different ways, which will provoke curiosity.
It can be something as simple as changing the bar of soap they normally use, for foam soap and letting them discover the new texture, play with it and determine which they prefer.
Do you know how music affects your brain? People who study music actually tend to use both sides of their brains.
This makes them better at lateral thinking, which means being able to solve problems through a creative approach.
Discovering new cultures is a great way to nurture curiosity. And local food is an excellent way to find out more about a new culture, its flavors, manners, and tradition.
Take your kids for a lovely meal in an authentic Japanese, Thai, Indian, Vietnamese or Spanish restaurant, whatever you think they will enjoy more.
As a parent, it can sometimes be tough to let your kids do what they want. They can often want to do the most inconvenient things. But as long as their latest idea isn’t dangerous, it is better to let them explore the world in their own way.
At a certain age, toddlers develop the desire to do things by themselves, and it is recommended to let them try. Saying things like “that’s not how you should do it” can negatively affect their curiosity. You may better let them make mistakes and learn from them.
If this is an option, take your kids to a foreign country to experience new cultures, see diverse places and meet new people.
One of the main reasons why we travel is to satisfy our curiosity and traveling makes us more curious. So getting your kids into this stimulating circle at an early age, will help them get pleasure from visiting new places during their whole lives.
By asking questions to your kids, you will pick their brains and make them think about different possible solutions to a problem or matter.
Some questions ideas are:
Kids are continuously asking questions and sometimes they can be quite tough to answer. To be able to give them a constructive response it is necessary to understand why are they asking that question.
For instance, when they ask you ‘why do you have to go to work?’ they don’t want to hear a list of reasons. They have a desire to spend more time with you.
Experiencing the process of making a cake – from the ingredients to the final result – can be quite amazing for a child.
And, doing it themselves, will awaken all their senses: hearing how to do it, seeing the transformation and colors, touching unusual textures, smelling the cake while it is baking and finally tasting it!
You could leave a good morning note under their pillow, organize a treasure hunt for a snack, or invite someone they like for lunch and don’t tell them until the loved person arrives.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
