When kids see their favorite characters in action and have their plush Elmo in hand, they can feel more confident and excited about reading. This can help get kids excited about learning new things and gaining new, useful life skills.

Your Child on TV!

Personalized DVDs
Keepings kids occupied can certainly be a difficult task. As a parent, it is imperative that kids are not only stimulated and occupied, but it is vital that whatever it is that they are doing is educational or beneficial in some way. As technology grows and becomes more and more popular, kids are more likely to plop down on the couch or wander the living room while they play with a tablet or watch the television. While it is important that kids experience a wide range of activities, DVDs and other visual media can actually be helpful for kids.

ABC Monsters Personalized DVD
Personalized DVDs from KD Novelties offer interactive and immersive stories for children to get into and learn from while also having fun and being entertained. The best part of these cartoon adventures is the child’s picture is inserted into the cartoon! Educational DVDs like the ABC Monsters Series can help kids learn the alphabet while taken on an imaginative journey to find the letter monsters. Kids will get immersed in the story but will still be learning at the same time. Other DVDs like Care Bears Fitness is Fantastic can get kids up on their feet while they have fun watching this educational adventure. Gregory and Me sets kids on an animal adventure  that spans the world, introducing kids to creatures that live across the globe that they can even interact with and learn a great deal from. Kids can become the center of their own imaginative adventures in other personalized DVDs such as in My Dream Book and Little Mermaid DVDs. Other personalized DVDs can help encourage kids to keep learning and to believe in themselves and their capabilities, such as the You Can DoAnything interactive DVD.


There are plenty of other personalized DVDs to choose from and they all include kids as the main star. The personalized aspect of these DVDs helps pique children’s interest in the material, and the interactive adventures help them have fun while they are also learning valuable lessons, acquiring new skills, and exercising their imagination.

Tips on How to Get Your Kids Motivated to Read More in 2015

With the New Year upon us, it's a great time to set reading goals for yourself and even your kids. Before another busy year gets underway we recommend setting these goals early in the year. Below find some tips on starting the goals and keeping the kids motivated and encouraged in completing them throughout the year.

  1. Make reading goals fun by treating them like games and offering incentives as rewards.  Little rewards like trips, treats and other simple prizes can be a great way to encourage kids to read more in the upcoming year.
  2. Get children involved in their goal setting by letting them design and create their own reading calendar, hence, turning their goal setting into an arts and crafts project. When children are involved in setting their own goals the response to completing those goals will be much higher than if parents created their goals for them.
  3. Take frequent trips to the library and allow kids to get exposed and engaged with new and different stories. Allow children to choose their own books to read. It's okay if they choose a comic book or a rhyme and riddles book, the goal is that they are reading.  It doesn't always have to be educational. When kids choose their own books they will make it a point to read and enjoy it.
  4. Build their self-esteem all while promoting literacy by purchasing unique stories starring the child as the main character.  KD Novelties offers personalized children's books for kids of all ages.  From educational, to fairy tales, to superhero adventures their broad selection of books can help keep kids busy for the entire year.
  5. For younger kids parents should role-play the stories being read or have a costume party based on the theme of the book.  For older kids having them draw or make a collage of the story will help them have fun and anxious to move onto the next book.

Write Your Own Holiday Storybook

When it comes to keeping kids alert and on top of their education and learning, it may be a bit of a hassle to get kids interested in anything other than the presents they received, holiday traditions, or other related activities. If parents are having a hard time keeping kids focused on their learning, there are ways to redirect their excitement by using their imagination as well as their creativity.

Kids’ imaginations run wild.  If parents are looking for a way to exercise their kids’ brains, they can ask them to write a book, story, comic book, or other medium depicting their perfect holiday or about what they experienced on Christmas or Hanukkah. This can be a great arts and crafts activity that kids can create on their own, with friends and siblings, or even with the help of their parents, grandparents and other family members. Have them draw, color, cut out shapes, craft collages, write short stories and descriptions and let their imaginations take them to exciting new places and possibilities. They can create a series of pictures, a holiday storybook or craft ornaments that collectively tell a story. Kids will be applying a variety of skills to create something fun and imaginative.
 

Not only will this help kids exercise their reading comprehension, writing, critical thinking and creative skills, but it can also serve as a memento for years and years to come for the whole family. Keep the trinket out all year round or make it a holiday tradition to read around the same time every year. This can serve as a great way for kids to apply their creative and critical thinking juices while also allowing them to create a wonderful family memory that will last for many holidays, and may one day be something that they can share with their future children.

Visit our website at KDNovelties.com for personalized books, music, and cartoon DVDs that will enhance your child's reading abilities ten-fold, while having fun too!
