How to Get Children Into Computing from a Young Age

This post may contain affiliate links.
Thank you for visiting Cori's Cozy Corner! Please make sure to like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and subscribe to our E-mails!

daniella computerKids love technology, and if you’ve got children you’ll probably be sick of them always being glued to a laptop, tablet or a smartphone – more often than not playing games. However, an interest in technology from a young age doesn’t always have to be a bad thing, as let’s face it – the world today is centered around computing and technology, and the more computer-literate and confident with computing that you child is, the better a chance they will have at landing decent jobs when they’re older. If your child loves technology and you’d like to get them to channel that interest by learning how to code and more about the technical side of technology, here’s a few ideas.

Child-Friendly Coding Programs

There are a number of coding websites designed specifically for kids, and they have a child friendly interface that will encourage your child to visit the site in order to learn. Made With Code by Google was specifically designed to encourage more girls to get into coding and has a number of different coding projects for any level and ability that are quite easy to follow. If your child has never had any sort of coding experience before there’s no need to worry – project levels range from complete beginner to intermediate to advanced so that your child can progress as they learn.

Code.org

Launched in 2013 to help more schools to include wider access to computer science teaching and also to enable underrepresented and minority students to learn how to code, code.org is not only a site that is an advocate for computer science and coding, it’s also a great place for your kids to explore and learn as well. Much like Made With Code, code.org has a number of different lessons and tutorials that budding coders of all ages and abilities can follow, and it’s not just coding that they focus on with lessons and tutorials included for all aspects of computer science – it could inspire them to be the next Aubrey Chernick!

Code-Inspiring Games

If your child doesn’t seem too happy about sitting through online lessons and tutorials, there are a number of different apps and games that they can play on and have fun whilst also learning the basics of coding. Kodable is one such game which scaffolds programming skills in order to help young children learn how to code. It’s designed for kids aged 5-8, and is free – or $7 if you’d like to upgrade to the pro version. It is designed to run on the iOS operating system which is great if you’ve got an iPhone or an iPad. For those who don’t use iOS operated devices, Robozzle is also a great game aimed at kids 6+ and even adults that will work on Android and Windows devices, and can even be played on a web browser using a laptop or PC.

Do you have a child who’s into computer science and coding? Which sites, apps or games was it that inspired them to learn more and sparked their interest? We’d love to hear from you in the comments.

Fused Glass Art Classes for Kids in Boca Raton at BANG Glass

Thank you for visiting Cori's Cozy Corner! Please make sure to like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and subscribe to our E-mails!

11143343_808900262541772_7611047412153163383_o (1)Last week my girls had the opportunity to take a class and create their own fused glass masterpieces at BANG Glass, a new fused glass art studio in Boca Raton, FL.  BANG Glass classes are taught by BANG Glass designer and instructor, Scott Avidon, a graduate of Pratt Institute with more than 15 years of experience in the industry working with such brands as Steuben, Bvlgari, Waterford, Kenneth Cole and Versace.  That’s A LOT of experience so he knows what he’s talking about.  My girls loved learning all about fused glass making from Scott.  20150728_102235 (1024x576)He showed the class examples of things he had made as well as examples made by other children.  20150728_102253 (1024x576)We all toured his studio where we learned how glass is broken, polished with a special machine, and also how it is melted in a kiln.  20150728_103309 (1024x576)The kids were all fascinated and asked Scott lots of questions.

I had always been afraid of my girls doing fused glass art because was worried that they would get burned.  That was probably not the best assumption on my part.  I guess I had always pictured it being something like the glass artists that make the glass figures at Disney and I thought there was flame involved.   You know what they say about assuming……so I want to make sure other parents knew exactly what this fun art style involves.  The kids get no where near the hot glass.  To create the fused glass art the children are given a piece of glass to use as their “canvas” and a bunch of different pieces of glass to create their design with.  20150728_110650 (576x1024)The kids can design their artwork on paper first or just play around right on the piece of glass.

20150728_110717 (576x1024)Once they decide how they want their design to look they use special glue gel to place the small pieces of glass where they will be.  20150728_113601 (576x1024) (2)After the pieces are finished and the children leave, Scott puts the pieces in the kiln, does his magic, and the pieces are ready for to be picked up a few days later.

Here’s what the pieces looked like before they were put in the kiln.

And here’s the final results-

My kids loved it and are begging to go back!  Are you looking for a unique activity for the kids before school starts?  BANG Glass is offering classes for children ages 8 and up on August 4, 6, 11 & 13 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon. BANG Glass art studio and showroom located at 2600 N.W. 1st Avenue in Boca Raton.

The cost is $35 per child, per class and includes up to two completed projects that will be ready for pick up in a week’s time.  Children under 10 must be accompanied by an adult.   Space is limited so reserve your space, call 561-430-5179 or email scott@bangglass.com.

bang glass2Adults can get in on the action, too!  BANG glass offers three-hour classes for adults for $65 throughout the week for beginners as well as professional artists, where you can create a project such as a custom glass tray or bowl.  I can’t wait to make something myself, too!

bang glassBANG Glass also produces custom fused glass dinnerware, bars, tables, sinks wall panels and lighting fixtures.  Scott does some amazing work so if you are looking for some fused glass for your home or office, check it it out.  For more information and class schedule, visit www.bangglass.com.

Great Hobbies Your Kids Should Try Out

This post may contain affiliate links.
Thank you for visiting Cori's Cozy Corner! Please make sure to like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and subscribe to our E-mails!

Finding a hobby for your child is never an easy thing to do. But the advantages of them having a hobby can be vast.

Taking Photos

We all have cameras at our fingertips on our mobile phones nowadays, and that includes our children. So, if they enjoy taking photos on their phone, why not get them a camera for them to take more and better photos on? This is something that children can get really passionate about and get a great deal of enjoyment from.

It could even develop into a future career for them if they develop genuine skills in photography. The demand for photographs and photography is greater than ever. Every top website, newspaper and magazine uses professionally taken photographs. At the very least, it will help them develop their creativity.

Playing an Instrument

It’s understandable that some parents remain reluctant to let their children learn a musical instrument. The thought of having the house filled with the sound of a child struggling to play an instrument isn’t the most appealing prospect in the world. But it’s a skill that can be great for them in lots of ways.

Children who play instruments tend to do better at school and have greater prospects in later life. Talk to them and let them choose which instrument they want to play. It should be their choice, that way they’ll be more invested in it. You could let them take online guitar lessons or have someone you know teach them how to play the piano. But let them take control!

Joining a Sports Team

A lot of parents are worried about the health of their children, so why not factor this into their new hobby? By encouraging them to join a sports team, you will make sure that they get their daily dose of exercise and stay in shape. Childhood obesity is one of the biggest problems right now, so playing sports is not just a good idea, it’s vital!

But that doesn’t mean it can’t be fun too. You shouldn’t focus on the fact that playing sport is good for them when you sell the idea to your son or daughter. That’ll just put them off the idea. Instead, you should persuade them by talking about how much fun it will be. And letting them choose which sport to play is a good idea too, don’t put pressure on them.

Acting

This might seem like a strange suggestion, but a lot of children love acting and performing on stage from a young age. This is something that a child either takes to and loves or just doesn’t. If you quickly find that they don’t enjoy it, don’t put any pressure on them to carry on doing it. They should enjoy the hobby.

Acting proves a great outlet for creative kids. It allows them to take on a new personality and, in the process, broaden their horizons. You’ll be surprised to learn that children who act tend to learn a lot about the world and other people. It teaches them empathy and understanding. But most of all, it’s great fun!

Hobbies are important for children, so make sure your children have one that they feel passionate about.
