The original idea, born from the quarantine with Love By Grace Kids, is about free online activities for children all over the world. This led me to think about how I could help the children in this beautiful community. That's how this project started.
Each week we will offer a different activity, with topics including: technology, science, cooking, history, crafts, etc. This is the new and wider concept of “soft skills” learning activities and emotional intelligence education. Through fun for children aged 3 to 10, they will have the opportunity to make new friends of similar ages in a healthy, fun, and dynamic environment, created in Eindhoven.
The idea of these activities is to support in :
1. To facilitate the children's process of adapting to this new country.
2. Our activities aim to create a connection between the children and the Dutch city and culture.
3. To build and strengthen the connection between the children and their parents during this period.
4. Activities focused on Intelligence emotional and soft skills.
I created a Facebook group
Every week I share ideas in the group such as: where to buy clothes, ideas of kids parties, places to have birthday parties, where to go to eat with the kids, and other ideas to make life easier. Every Thursday I have experts from around the world on a Facebook live event with different topics for kids (e.g. bullying, reading, creating activities for your kids, healthy food, dyslexia, finances, gentle discipline, and more). I have experts booked every Thursday this month, as well as two Saturdays. I have a Facebook live where you can speak with an expert in toddlers about different topics to help parents with the little :).
There is also a new session called “Expat Kids Be The Blogger" where every Thursday one of our expat kids and their family share their experience visiting in one place in Eindhoven or around the city. Every Friday is “Learning Dutch with Esther.”
Expat kids in Eindhoven is committed to supporting online activities for children during this time of Lock Down. I am currently doing free online zoom activities for the Lock Down. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 2:30 pm. This second session runs until Monday 08th February.
