3. Don't give up on certain activities if they don't engage the children right away.
It is rare for an activity to be programmed once and succeed straight away.
It is possible to improve the likelihood of this, however-
Firstly, invite a small group of children who you know will be engaged in the activity to come and try the activity.
Secondly, make sure wherever the activity is taking place, it is in view of other children.
The longer the activity runs, the more children will be intrigued by whatever it is you and the small group are doing.
Eventually, your small group will grow and the more participants, the more likely it is that each child is going to enjoy themselves.
Children will know next time the activity is planned, it will be popular because the last time it ran, it attracted a crowd, and children hate missing out on popular activities.
If this strategy does not succeed the first time, don’t be afraid to try again, or modify the activity based on what your children’s current interests are.
Alternatively, it may be down to the small group of children involved, or even the educator in charge...
