The Ultimate Diwali Holiday Guide: How to make them fun and Educational

Exams are over, it is the Diwali break and your children want to do anything but study. But like many other parents, you want to make sure your children keep up the habit of learning instead of it being just a hurried pre-exam activity.

Enter the PC.

The PC is an essential which makes learning both fun and educational for children of all ages and levels. During the holidays, it provides the perfect opportunity for children to test what they’ve already learned in school, relate theory to everyday life and be as creative as they like. [1]

Here are a couple of PC-backed ideas to make Diwali both fun and educational for your child:

1. Online Gaming

Gaming is often seen as a “waste of time” but the right games can actually be helpful. The website – Learning Games for Kids helps students to improve English grammar, learn new words, get more familiar with scientific and mathematical concepts and other important skills needed for school in a more memorable and fun manner.

2. Online Scrapbook

This is a great project that will keep children involved for days and is the perfect way to capture Diwali in its element. Scrapbooking teaches children the art of chronicling and recording moments, exercises their creativity and learn how to present things in the best possible way. A platform such as Canva preserves memories for life in the most artistic and individual style. [3]

3. Create a Video

Teach children to record video content and create videos on the PC. This allows them to understand not only the tech basics but key concepts like storytelling and using video as a key method of communication.

4. Short Online Courses

Sign them up for a short online course in an area that fascinates them. [4] This keeps them busy and engaged at home while allowing them to further develop their interests. It doesn’t have to be a school subject but any area that they want to explore.

The PC is there to balance entertainment and education for your child not just during the Diwali holidays but all throughout the school year. After all, it is one of the first learning gadgets that the children of 2017 use! [5]
