Why experiments are important for children
Our world is full of magic and full of wonder. Early on in Year 1, children begin to ask why. Most of the time, it's not about getting ready-made answers from adults at all, but being guided on the journey of asking questions and finding answers. Age-appropriate experiments and trials can help children do this.
7 things children can learn from experimenting:
Experimenting broadens your children's horizons.
Logical and scientific thinking is practised.
At the same time, respect for the world with all its wonders can be cultivated.
Children learn to observe carefully.
Children can develop their own imagination through experiments.
Through experiments that appeal to the children's senses in a variety of ways, they can learn holistically.
Creative problem-solving thinking can be stimulated.
Everything for the first experiments in Waldorfshop
In their deepest being, children are explorers. The older they get, the more scientific their urge to explore becomes. Therefore, it helps them if they are not only supported by educators in the kindergarten or in the classroom at school, but also have the necessary materials and ideas for instructions for a variety of experiments at home. They need adults around them who accompany and support them with fun and joy in simple experiments.
Why does a stone fall to the ground faster than a bird feather? Why does sugar burn as soon as you sprinkle some ash on it? Why does ice float on water?
In our online shop, we have put together a diverse selection of products for you and your children to explore and experiment with.
Particularly noteworthy here are the kits from Kraul. The basis of this family-owned company was established in the 1920's. Inspired by the work at a Waldorf school, toys were created that encourage children to experience numerous adventures, experiments and trials in nature.
At Kraul, great importance is attached to the use of high-quality materials and local woods as well as to environmentally friendly production.
