School Holiday Activity Ideas: Paperless Drawing with myFirst Sketch Book
The summer holidays are officially here, and whilst ‘freedom’ has returned, I’m focusing on finding low cost, fun activities that are socially safe enough for peace of mind.
Long school holidays are not ideal, as it can be tricky to find things to do that entertain kids without breaking the bank.
My son has taken an interest in creative drawing recently and I love it, because it’s so beneficial.
Sketching is a calming activity which makes a lovely change from gaming or shooting me with Nerf guns, and it’s something that gets his creative juices flowing.
It’s even free to do and can be done anywhere, which is always a bonus!
To help keep this interest alive, I’ve found a way he can create art using a new digital pad.
myFirst Sketch Book was designed by a team of dads to help bridge the gap between technology and traditional toys for kids.
They recognised the need for children to engage with the advances in technology that the world’s developed in a safe way.
This inspired them to create a range of innovative gadgets for children of all ages with varying interests.
A digital camera was their first gadget, which has become the number one brand in Korea, and they’re now offering digital sketch books to enhance children’s learning.
