Personal: Something Fun to Do with Kids

As many of you know, I have a background in education, and I have taught kids of all ages all sorts of things in my life. These days, I teach young adults, so I don’t have many opportunities to interact with young kids. I love watching young kids learn new things, and I also love to challenge them! I had the opportunity to observe my sweet (super sweet) nephews and niece trying new things when I was in North Carolina a few weeks ago, and I caught some of this learning on time-lapse video. Once I showed them the first fast video, they all wanted to be video-taped, so I now have a collection of videos that make me smile. Here are three of my favourites. I just love the kids’ facial expressions as they work through their activities.

First up is Duke. He was building a whale from a Japanese mini-lego-type kit I brought him.

Next, we have Holt who is a little inventor and needed help crafting a plastic helmet for his hedgehog who was taking skydiving flights down the stairs all morning.

Finally, we have Gigi who was writing a thank you letter. She’s putting so much thought into carefully spelling out words.

Time-lapse video is an easy and fun way to capture kids’ learning as well as their very cute facial expressions!

Oh, I almost forgot…Happy Halloween!
