At TechCamps4Kids we understand how delicate the brain is and, while we love technology, we also know the value of taking a break from technology to rest and recover.  After all, you don’t find professional sports people training 24 hours a day – so why should it be different with technology?

With this is mind, here are 5 fun ways to keep the kids busy these holidays.

 Decipher Code

Let kids create coded messages to you using ASCII Binary which is based on 7 digits using one’s and zeros.

Read a Comic

We found that many kids do not know how to read a comic.  Comics are a great way to teach kids to read, improve on imagination and help kids understand story board and content.  You can purchase comics from your local news agency.  Of course, Marvel and DC comics are popular but there are also other comics such as Richie Rich, Archie and Casper!

Create a Comic

Once kids have conquered how to read a comic, the next is to create one.  TechCamps4Kids published a book on ‘Comic Creations for Kids’.  This is a helpful easy to read book, giving kids tips and ideas on how to create their first comic.

Visit a Library

There are so many Libraries in Perth with great things to see and do.  Why not visit your local Library to see what they have planned for kids these holidays?

Membership to a Library is free.  All you need is Photo ID, verification of your home address and to your application form (which you can acquire at the Library).

Write a Story

TechCamps4Kids are looking for junior contributors.  Have the kids write a story about space and/or technology.  It could be fiction or non-fiction.  Who knows, their story might make it to press!
