Autumn … Rain outside the window. On the street in this weather there is nothing to do, and many children are frankly bored. Of course, it’s good if your child has friends and they will come to visit, only mothers are not always thrilled by the fact that children carry the apartment. What to do? Watch as the child sits all day at the TV or give the apartment to be torn apart by the little vandals? Why not make a … creative contest? The apartment is intact, and the children are busy!
Do not believe those who say my child does not know how to sing, draw, dance …. Maybe your baby will not sing the aria of Lensky, but all his creative impulses come from the heart.
Of course, children are not interested in just sculpt, draw or dance, they need motivation and excitement! In your power to do all this, given some points:
- Each competition consists of several stages: preparation, rehearsal, the competition itself. And children may need help from adults.
- Each competition must have prizes. Stock up on small souvenirs, and do not forget about letters or diplomas! Only a diploma and a diploma should be with each of the participants. For example, the most talented, the most creative, the most active, the most diligent.
From this competition will be delighted girls 5-10 years. The number of participants is at least three! Preparation for the competition, the competition itself and the summing up, most often takes from 30 minutes to 1.5 (depending on the number of participants).
The essence of the competition: Each of the girls should come up with an image, make up and dress up. And then go out on the podium and not just demonstrate your costume, but also protect it. This can be done in prose and in verse, and you can sing or dance. Judges are, of course, adults! But you can make a secret vote, where the girls themselves will choose the winner.
You will need: a bunch of old clothes and accessories (handbags, shoes, handkerchiefs), jewelry, akvagrim or children (hypoallergenic) cosmetics, several mirrors.
Do you have kids in your apartment who like to draw? Organize an exhibition-competition drawing. And unusual. Now to help mothers sold colored sand, finger paints, sets for painting on glass, etc.
This competition can be held with both 3-year-olds (with the support of their mothers) and 12-year-olds.
After all the works of art are ready, arrange the exhibition with a buffet. Just like adults!
For children of different ages, a talent contest is best suited.
The essence of the competition: every child for a certain time (for example, 30 minutes) must prepare a number: a dance, a song, a poem. In addition, you need to choose a suit. Older children (eight years old) can be given additional roles: director, sound engineer, choreographer, show host.
You will need: a pile of old clothes, cosmetics, jewelry, a toy microphone or something that can replace it, some kind of scene, perhaps a curtain, musical accompaniment.
For dessert, several mini-contests that can be held at a children’s party.
Loved by children and adults competition.
The essence of the game: to divide the children into two teams, each distribute leaves with those words that should end each line. For example … a window … for a long time … a game … it’s time or … children … rather … a round dance … a year. The task of the teams is to compose a poem in a minute.
You will need: several sheets of paper (according to the number of teams), ballpoint pens or felt-tip pens.
The essence of the game: Children are divided into two teams. Various musical instruments are distributed to one half, for example, a maracas, a synthesizer, a drum, a pipe, a whistle, spoons, etc. (besides the noise instruments, there must also be one where you can output the melody). The task of one team: to depict the thought of leading melody. The second task is to guess this melody.
You will need: musical instruments.
The essence of the game: Lead lets in a circle leaves with undistorted animals (dog, crocodile, camel, giraffe). Each of the children must draw a part of the body, which at this moment is called the leader. For example, the presenter says: Eyes. Each of the participants draws on the received leaf of the eye. At the command of the leader: We transfer the drawing, the children pass it on in a circle further, and the leader continues to command. At the exit get very funny and colorful animals.
You will need: drawings with not finished animals, felt-tip pens by the number of participants.
Children are welcome to any initiative, they like to try new things and compete. Try to play with them together, and immediately feel a charge of energy and vigor!
