Making an origami phone and adding a brief description (essay) is one of the unique and cool homeschool activities my kid had done.
 Nokia 2000 made by the 7yrs boy.
Homeschool ActivitiesThis is an age of It and Phones/tabs/computers, PST, and other devices that had already replaced many other devices. Outdoor games are getting ignored and sitting inside is muting many interesting hobbies day by day.
The new generation(young children) is also under the deep influence of all these devices.
But!
What is the Role of homeschool activities to introduce a new generation with new technology as well as the right use of them?

Parents are not in the condition of saying “No” to devices and technology.As
 Kids are watching to moms and Fathers they are spending more time scrolling iPhone!
So! How A Good homeschooling is possible with good parenting Guide? Today we need to get more advanced and a step ahead to accept and molded new technology into rapid benefits. So I never push them to stop using these things. Yes, we have some strict rules and schedules to use it.
That’s why my elder 7+ yrs boy and youngers are also dreaming to grow big and waiting for possible reach to the iPhone.(I’m very strict with them to understand that personal iPhone allowed just to adults, of course, they have a desktop). I would really like them to get mine for a short time. And in that interval using tricks I always motivate them to do creative things and learn useful things (Read my article about Best ideas to use iPhones could get here)With the iPhones.
Now what the older one did? He made this origami iPhone using Paper and colors.
I was in a condition of a shock to see him under that much influenced by iPhones. I was collecting words to explain why he could not get an iPhone at this age. But the next moment I praised his work. And discussed how he made this. He told me that ‘this is a Nokia phone. And I had made another one for younger brother’. And those both were flipping phone.

So I can say proudly, home school activities provided him a big space to learn and grow. And using self-creativity he had made done a super job and his observation and memory were super high. No one around me is using a Nokia phone, but he watched that somewhere and using memory he had made a perfect phone with all the keys.

The phone was pretty good. He was glad and I too. But this did not end. We were going to add a new home school activity with this. 
I asked him to write down the features(essay) of his Phone.
And this was a great experience. His involvement in writing was pretty more than any other thing. He was writing and I was analyzing myself how much knowledge I can transform. Here is another picture of what he had written. (Ignore the writing as it was then not written to show off and also creativity doesn’t demand beauty)

  • Motor skills.
  • Writing skills.

    1. I like it very much… My little you feels alone at home and complains about getting bored with toys and syllabus books. I found it really helpful besides the typical crafts and other long turned articals. Thank you… I need more idea's to help my daughter. I will email you soon.

    2. Lovely idea to keep the kids busy & I like that you've added which learning outcomes this covers… good to know! Saving for future reference!

    3. I like how he wrote an essay on it. It's always good for them to write about something they are interested in. My eldest is 7 but I do not plan on giving her a phone for a very long time. #muslimahbloggers

    4. In a world where everybody has a phone including children it's very hard to teach children about the disadvantages of it too. I am strictly against kids using phone but my little brother is so stubborn that he always find a way to get my mother's mobile just to play a game. I have seen 10 years old using social media which kind of scares me. I don't know but I myself am strictly against this because you know it can affect children's mind directly.
      Love this activity though ❤

    5. Yes you are absolutely right Yousra Naeem. Mine kids are mentally prepared that they will get phone when they turn 18 years old.But to meet modern challenges and demands, we can't neglect its importance. You can read my artical about good apps with no bad effects linked down. And for games computer is much better with scheduled timing and also for learning purpose.thanks for complements.http://jugnofireflies.blogspot.gr/2017/07/best-uses-of-phone-for-children-what.html
