Destination Imagination brings thousand of kids to Knoxville

Destination Imagination

They’re smart, a bit eccentric, they have a sense of humor and a few of them can sing. According to Ken Schwall, that pretty much describes the thousands of kids in Knoxville this week for Destination Imagination.

WBIR News

More than a thousand students from all over the world are visiting Knoxville this week.

Destination Imagination, a group dedicated to enriching the global community by providing opportunities for kids of all ages, is once again hosting its final competition at the University of Tennessee. This is the 12th year that Knoxville has hosted the group.

Destination Imagination KidsThe event kicks off on Wednesday with an opening ceremony at Thompson-Boling Arena, and continues through Saturday.

More than 14-hundred teams from 42 states and 16 countries qualified for the competition. The teams will compete in events designed to challenge them to come up with creative solutions, utilizing science, technology, engineering and math knowledge, as well as improvisation, theater arts, writing, project management, communication innovation, teamwork and community service.

“America’s Got Talent” finalist David Garibaldi and “American Idol” contestant and DI alumna Rachel Hale will perform for the students at the opening ceremony. Garibaldi, a performance painter, will create a painting with his body movement (and brushes) to the music’s beat at the Welcome Center. Rachel Hale will sing the national anthem.

Hours of Fun with the Trendy National Geographic Space Laser Pegs Set

Visit – Trendy Mom Reviews.com

This month, we are going to feature trendy toys and activities that help to make summer break more exciting. We are going to start with our favorite toy so far – the trendy National Geographic Space Laser Pegs Set! My son is going to attend a NASA Space Camp later this summer, so I knew that he would love this set.

We think that this set is one of the best toys for summer vacation because it is an extremely engaging set that can entertain for hours. It allows children to use their imaginations, practice following instructions, and learn about space. The designers of this set put a lot of thought into this product. There are 24 different models that children can build with the pieces. There are also infinite possibilities of designs that children can invent on their own.

AstronautActivityForPreschooler

Personally, my son jumped up and down when he saw the box. He couldn’t wait to tear the box open so that he could start building. The first thing that he created was the trendy astronaut. I was amazed how focused he was on following the instructions. I was also amazed at how quiet he was as he played for hours with this set. The 24 different designs will keep children busy for a very long time, so we feel like this toy is a really good deal considering how much our son plays with it. We also like the educational aspect of it because our son asks questions about the different models. The models inspired him to learn more about space.

The National Geographic Space Laser Pegs Set is first Trendy Toy Pick for Summer Vacation. It is educational and fun!

May the Fourth Be With You

Star Wars Day was created by fans to honor and celebrate the Star Wars franchise created by George Lucas. May the 4th is considered a holiday by Star Wars fans to celebrate the franchise’s films series, books and culture. The date was chosen as “May the 4th” due to its sounding similar to the series’ phrase “May the Force be with you”.

Finding the Best Toys For An Autistic Child

autistic-toys

Parents of autistic children sometimes have a complicated time when trying to choose a toy for their child. They want a toy that their child will treasure and enjoy, but one that is able to serve as an educational tool. But since there is a full spectrum of children with autism, no one child is alike. Below are an array of options to consider when buying toys for autistic children.

Options for Sensory Stimulation

Children with autism are more likely to have sensory issues. This means they need more help with activities, games, or toys that will hone the senses. Their issues can range anywhere among the five senses- sight, touch, smell, taste, and hearing. This gives plenty of leeway in looking for a specific toy.

A great general toy for autistic children with sensory problems, however, would be something like a mini trampoline. This provides exercise and help with sight and touch. A cheaper and handmade “toy” consisting of crates filled with things like sand, beans, or marbles that they can play in reinforces their sense of touch. Another economical option is to string up some Christmas lights around your house to improve their sense of sight. If they’re the kind that make noise, then you can use them to benefit their sense of hearing as well.

Building Social Butterflies

Like all people their age, children with autism may a hard time making new friends. However, a symptom of autism that some might have is not picking up on social cues. This can make for awkward play dates or interactions at school. Finding games to sharpen their social skills can be a lifesaver. Choices like board games can be a huge help. Board games, which need to have more than one person playing, will assist in picking up social skills. The whole family, or just a few friends can pitch in and play.

Another option are building block toys like Legos. While they can be played with individually, the level of enjoyment is raised when more people join in. It can be a learning experience for your child to focus on playing with other people, not getting upset over losing, and practicing how to take turns.

Improving Motor Skills

Autism may also affect children’s motor skills. Motor skills involve things that require coordination of the muscles, like throwing a ball, writing, walking, or running. This can make what others think of as normal, daily activities, an uphill battle for autistic kids.  If they’ve been struggling with these skills a long time, it can give children with autism a real loss of confidence. There are a few toys out there that can help with these skills, however. Stackers, puzzles, do-it-yourself kits, and coloring sets are all great choices to help improve an autistic child’s motor skills.

If you’re still not exactly sure on what toy you should buy to help your child cope with autism, call or click to find out more about Laser Pegs today!
