[Note: This post is exclusive to KidFriendly DC and announces the launch of an exciting new summer activity for local families. It was written by the folks at the Kiddovate Foundation.]
If you are looking for a fun summer activity to do WITH your kids, we’ve found it. It’s not a camp, class, or cookout. And it doesn’t require driving, diving, or dishing out cash. It’s something you can do at home, for free, with the whole family. And your kids will LOVE IT.
Sounds impossible, but it’s true! KidFriendly DC was among the first to learn about the launch of The Kiddovate Family Challenge! Check out this video to see this month’s challenge yourself — the KidFriendly DC crew was eager to jump in, and your kids will be, too!
The Kiddovate Family Challenge is an exciting family activity that encourages kids and parents to work together to solve monthly creative challenges. Imagine building a rubber band powered vehicle, innovating a new kind of firework, or using recyclable materials to construct the ultimate toy store. These are the types of challenges that families participate in each month, and winners receive great prizes from big time sponsors. (In July, the sponsor is Six Flags America!)
Parents feel great about participating in Kiddovate’s STEAM-based challenges; and kids are so engaged that they will actually turn off their iPads and start building! Besides being fun and engaging for the whole family, the Kiddovate Family Challenge inspires innovative thinking, teamwork, collaboration, and hands-on building with everyday materials like old shoe boxes, egg cartons, and empty toilet paper tubes. Seriously, you have to see this video.
The Kiddovate Family Challenge is subscription based, but it’s super cheap when compared to alternative activities, or even movie tickets! For just $4.99 per month your family gets access to the monthly challenge and you become eligible to win fantastic prizes geared at creating even more family fun.
Great news for KidFriendly DC readers, if you sign up for the Kiddovate Family Challenge soon, the first month (July) is free! Please don’t miss out on the chance to join in the fun and ignite a flurry of creativity and innovation in your own home.
Again, check out this video to see this month’s challenge. Spoiler alert: You and your kids will be designing and prototyping a totally innovative water park experience. You guessed it, winners receive AWESOME prize package to Six Flags America.
Sign up for the Kiddovate Family Challenge today to have so much fun “making a splash” with your kids.
Yes, the prizes and recognition are great. But, beyond that, your family wins something priceless: time together as a family, making memories and having fun. It might sound simple, even cheesy, but in a fast paced world where turnover and timelines move at a rapid pace, taking time to roll up your sleeves and engage with your kids is a precious commodity. Challenging yourself to listen to your kids’ ideas and help bring them to life can be transformative in a family.
So, “take the plunge” and start making waves with this awesome family-friendly activity, from the folks at Kiddovate who are working hard to help today’s kids become tomorrow’s innovators.
