Do you have “holiday brain” right now? It’s that time of year when we all find it hard to concentrate either because we are mentally checked-out to the holiday celebrations already and/or because we are overloaded with extra to-do’s that keep piling up! I know I’m in full holiday brain mode and my kids are, too. They are coming home from school each day chatting about how few days are left before winter break and all of their plans for filling those days with holiday fun. It’s hard enough to get them to focus on homework, let alone keep them engaged at school. How do we empower their personality and keep them excited for learning this time of year?
To help kids fuel up for school and engage them throughout the year, Monster™ has partnered with Kellogg’s to provides some awesome ideas for empowering our child’s personality and keeping the enthusiasm for learning alive and well during the holiday season. Plus they are offering Rural Mom readers the chance to win a very cool set of headphones to help your child express their personality and “Color it Loud!” Read on!
With all the holiday distractions, how do you keep your children engaged during this exciting time of year? In our home, we encourage lots of family time and try to incorporate a bit of educational play with board games and having our teens take the lead on holiday baking (measuring, planning and so on) which teaches them some excellent life skills in the process.
I also like to let them play their favorite music during homework time as it helps them to create a more positive experience. For them, it doesn’t feel like such a chore to get your Geometry paper completed when they are humming along to upbeat tunes. I’m not always in the mood to hear their music or it may be a distraction to the rest of our household, so I find that a quality set of headphones like Monster N-Tune is a terrific solution. We also love that the N-Tunes can be connected with the music share feature which allows both of my sons to listen to the same music, video, movie and so on together from the same device. I’m so impressed with the quality of sound and design, that we’ve already purchased two additional Monster-N-Tune headphones for our home use… and Santa will be delivering one more!
Looking for more ideas? These top back pack basics from Monster and Kellogg’s are are also excellent ways to engage our children with the learning process and to inspire them to let their individuality shine!
- Keep them satisfied. Whether they’re sassy and savory or super and sweet, pack them a smart snack to suit their personality and get their juices flowing. Smart snacks are baked, low in fat and available in pre-portioned, smart-sized packets.
- Creative catalyst. Inspiration can strike anywhere from the bus to the playground. Give your kids the tools they need to capture it with a small sketch pad and a supply of colored pencils. Keep a compact set of supplies in their backpack so they put every idea to paper every time!
- Music motivation. It doesn’t matter if your style is hip-hop, alternative or country, nothing defines your style and gets you moving like music. As we mentioned earlier, Monster N-Tune on-ear headphones brings your favorite music, movies and games to life with unmatched clarity and depth; hand-tuned with precision and bass designed to blow you away. Their compact sleek colorful design completes any style and will fit perfectly in a backpack.
- Stylish security blanket. Every kid has it, that one piece of clothing that makes them feel like a king or queen. Put that shirt, scarf or hat – whatever it is – into their backpack so they can easily sport it whenever they need an extra confidence booster at school!
Our kids are unlike any other, so promoting their personality power is important to help them express themselves during the holiday season and throughout the year!
