At Kids Day Out we practice handwriting our names. All the fun activities we do with arts and crafts, building with small blocks and toys, lacing, cutting, and glueing help the children develope fine motor skills so that they can hold a pencil and write.
Remember when your favorite toy was a card board box? At KDO children learn to play and work together. They learn how to speak with their friends and teachers, how to share, take turns, and cooperate. Our children grow strong bonds of friendship that last through school and into young adulthood.
We learned how Zacceus cheated people, but when Jesus forgave him, he paid back all the money. The children learned that sometimes we can do more than just say we’re sorry to make it right. And God will always forgive us.
Kendallyn makes her snack into a tree for Zacceus to climb so he can see Jesus over the crowd.
Research shows that children learn more from hands on activities like this one than from using a device like a cell phone or tablet.
