Kid’s everywhere can now gain practical skills through an exciting new world of their own. I wrote a post about my kid’s fascination with DIY when it first launched a few months ago, but this new movie clip gets them buzzing with excitement.
Not only are my children often found deep in concentration with their own latest creation, but they are also fascinated scanning the huge collection of other kid’s inspiring creations online in the DIY community and checking out the many challenges that interest them to earn ‘Skill Badges’. It’s much like their local Scouts group but connecting into a global DIY community. It’s changing the way kid’s can share, inspire and learn from each other across the world.
Mr Six has been so busy working away on various creations and challenges we’ve now just got to upload his latest projects to his own DIY portfolio and earn some of those Badges.
Mr Four can never miss out and is proudly following right behind him working on his own portfolio and it won’t be long before little sister joins in too am sure.
Nurturing The Creative Mind Of Our Future Change Makers.
There is a concept known as 'beginner’s mind' which is said to be an attitude of openness, eagerness and lack of preconceptions, very similar to that of a child.
This site explores the 'beginner's mind' creative abilities of children at play and the connection to design thinkers and innovators.
Children are open to exploration, discovery and experimentation. They learn about their world around them by pushing the limits, discovering what’s possible and what’s not.
Children are hard-wired to be creative, imaginative and innovative- abilities that often diminish along the way.
Maybe we can better understand these inherent creative skills during play and learning, to help us encourage and support a new breed of innovative thinkers more prepared to solve future challenges of our world.
