6 things Nigerian kids want on Children’s Day weekend

Yes! It is another May 27th, a day set aside for children to celebrate. On this day, although kids will be away from school, very few of them expect to be at home throughout the day.

The minds of children are very imaginative and there are certain activities you can engage in to bring them joy. With this in mind, we share 5 of the things Nigerian kids want on Children’s Day.

Take them to any amusement park fun factory in Lekki

Fun Factory in Lekki Phase 1 will be filled with the cries of excited children. Your kids should be among them. They offer games, toys, bouncy castles, train rides, carousels, swimming pools and other creative and interactive games for children. If your kids are between the ages of 1 to 10, it is the perfect place to go.

Spend valuable time with them

Present economic realities demand that both parents are economically engaged. They rarely have time for their children since they leave home very early in the morning and return late at night. In between, the children are left with a house help or family member. However, for Children’s day they want you to spend valuable time with them because it is a long children’s day.

Buy them boxes of chocolates

Children love chocolates. If you have never bought chocolate for your kids before, you should surprise them with a box. Make it more interesting by having a despatch rider deliver it to them. They will be animated and show it off to their friends. The welcome they will give when you return from work will nearly bring tears to your eyes.

Have them join the March parade

March parade is the most prominent event on Children’s day. Smart looking and well-dressed children, gather at an open ground where they show-off their marching skills to the admiration of a government dignitary – local government chairman, government or any other government representatives. The parade is for the children to have fun.

Don’t scold them 

Kids are restless. Parents have to be extremely patient with them whether it is Children’s Day or not. There is every tendency for you to scold them due to their restlessness. Since it’s children’s day, you  can grant them a bit of freedom and overlook some of their shortcomings.

Allow them to watch cartoons

Cartoon is one of the favourite programmes children prefer to watch on television.  They know the particular time these cartoons commences. They will really feel bad if you stop them from watching their preferred cartoons, especially on Children’s Day.
