At Buckley, we offer an array of enrichment activities — including rocketry, science, and Lego Robotics. With such a wide range of fun activities, here’s how they can help spark creativity in your child and prepare them for the future.
Encourages Critical Thinking Skills
When partaking in enrichment activities, there are a number of benefits it provides for your young one. Encouraging critical thinking skills is just one example of how enrichment activities can foster creativity in your child.
Enrichment activities allow for your child to objectively analyze and evaluate situations before arriving at a conclusion. For example, chess (one of a number of wonderful enrichment activities offered at Buckley!) will have children forging unique strategies and pondering their next move before ultimately claiming victory. Successfully conceptualizing a game plan in real-time is a great way to develop creativity in your child.
Discovering Solutions to Problems
Enrichment activities thrust your child into situations that call for unique solutions. Of course, problems won’t solve themselves, so what better way to foster creativity in your child than through such activities?
Take Lego Architecture (another enrichment activity offered here!) for example. Building items with Legos is sure to spark creativity in your child, but what do you do if you want to build a marvelously tall building? You’ll of course need to figure out how to build a base while utilizing the right Lego pieces.
Without supervision, children can flex their creative muscles while becoming independent in their decision-making through unique problem-solving activities. This is a crucial skill that will carry over throughout your child’s entire life.
Thinking Outside the Box
At Buckley Day Camp, we offer such activities like rocketry and science-related programs. So for those children who want to be astronauts or scientists, enrichment activities could very well set them onto that path.
Such activities will have your child questioning how things work — such as seeing a rocket fly up in the air. With their analysis, creativity in your child is forged when trying to understand the science behind such spectacles. For youngsters who may not have experience with science experiments, this allows them to come up with fascinating scenarios that help them understand how science works.
