Get Active With Your Children and ChildFund on Pinterest
As an international development organization that
focuses on children, ChildFund works in some of
the world's poorest countries to provide children in need with essential
resources, as well as opportunities for them to enjoy playtime and other
essential parts of childhood. With summertime here, you may already be thinking
of ways to keep your little ones occupied, and our newly updated Pinterest
boards have plenty of ideas for fun activities with your children, as well as
information on our programs and how we are making a difference around the
Fun in the Sun
This With Your Child Pinterest board is a treasure trove of simple ideas
that will keep even the most energetic children entertained. Many of the
pastimes pinned to this board aren't just fun but are educational, too. For
example, the United States Bingo game allows children to become more familiar
with the names (and shapes) of various states around the country and is an
entertaining way to combine learning with some friendly competition.
If it's a sunny day, why
not help your children make their own homemade ice chalk for some
sidewalk-painting fun? Alternatively, you could start a small flower patch in
your yard by using ice cream cones as biodegradable plant pots. This is an
excellent way to teach your children about nature and have some fun outside at
the same time.
Although our Pinterest
boards are a great source of inspiration for summertime activity ideas, we
also update them regularly to keep our followers and supporters up to date on
the work we're doing around the world.
Some of our boards focus
on highlighting the plight of less fortunate children in some of the world's
poorest countries, as well as what we're doing to make a difference. We have
included boards to promote world health initiatives like World Malaria Day and
awareness of other events, like One Day
Without Shoes. Our various boards are also a great way to learn more about
the countries in which we operate.
Social media platforms
like Pinterest enable us to share what we're doing thanks to the support and
generosity of our donors. In addition to our Pinterest boards, our Twitter feed and Facebook
page keep you up to date with what's happening at ChildFund and hear about
our supporters' experiences as child sponsors.
