Educational fun

Written by on May 12, 2014 in Activities, Kids - Comments Off on Educational fun

With half term around the corner comes the inevitable question ‘what to do with the kids’? You want them to have fun and learn something at the same time. You want them to tap into their (perhaps hidden) talents and engage them in original, thought-provoking activities – and not only during half term. Well, we have found the perfect activity finder for kids in and around London: myKidsy.

myKidsy aims to provide innovative after school, weekend and holiday activities for kids. Their goal is to save parents’ time on planning, so you can engage in quality time with your children. But MyKidsy is much more than just an activity finder. myKidsy helps parents steer their kids free time into educational fun.

It is about helping parents of the new digital app-economy find trusted courses that will incentivise and motivate their kids into hobbies and activities that will contribute to their further education and growth into becoming citizens of the future society: with empathy for nature, love for the Arts and sciences and in touch with their bodies and being active.

Yasmine-300x225myKidsy was founded by Yasmine Mahmoudieh, a working mother and internationally acclaimed designer and interior architect responsible for award-winning innovative design and architectural concepts for some of the world’s most outstanding luxury hotels such as the Kempinski hotel in Moscow, the Intercontinental in Berchtesgaden, the Radisson Blu hotel in Copenhagen and Berlin. She has also designed office complexes, shopping centres and private residences worldwide as well as on the interior concept of the Airbus A380 and the first design hotel for disabled people in the world. Her vision for myKidsy is to deliver the most rewarding and novel activities that will prepare our children for the future and to get kids active and using their brainpower.

Activities through myKidsy range from art-sessions with famous illustrators, film-making, learning how to make robots fly, computer coding as well as an introduction to subjects as varied as philosophy, entrepreneurship and yoga.

How cool, I wish I could have had these classes when I was a kid…
