By: Ayzia Johnson Christmas is right around the corner, and the season of gift giving is here. Shopping for your child, your grandchild, or your niece or nephew can be difficult. This year consider giving them a gift that won’t break, or get boring. Perhaps the perfect gift this year will be the gift of learning.
What makes learning such a great gift?
A new toy on Christmas morning is fun and exciting, no doubt. However, all too often the excitement wears off, the toy breaks or is soon forgotten. Better than a toy, give the child in your life the gift of learning. Hands on, minds on activities help young children learn to love learning, increase their attention span, and begin to develop fundamental thinking and learning skills. For Christmas this year, give your child opportunities for hands on learning and discovery at The STEM Shoppe. Your child will make unforgettable memories, learn about the world through engaging experiments, discover how things work, and make new friends. The STEM shoppe is the perfect environment for having fun, practicing critical thinking skills and discovering creativity. The gift of a positive learning experience plants seeds of wonder and nurtures curiosity in young minds. Experiences at The STEM shoppe will help your child love learning. Video games and cell phone apps reinforce short attention spans and instant gratification. Science experiments, computer coding, and engineering challenges require patience and problem solving and give a child a sense of accomplishment and success at the end. Developing the skills of patience, hard work, and enjoying delayed gratification as a young child will lead to success in the future. The Christmas gift of positive learning experiences at the STEM shoppe will be remembered for years to come, and turn your child into a lifelong learner.
