  • It is recommended to tell the name of the story before narrating the bedtime story. This is will the children to recall the story whenever needed
 
  • Ambiance creation: Explain the characters, the scenes in a way so that the kid can visualize it. To make the story more real-life & dramatic, the characters can be enacted by the parents.  
 
  • Let the kids ask questions: Having queries on the story & characters would entail engagement from the kid’s point of view. Encourage asking questions!
 
  • End the story with a moral: Initially, the kids might not be able to connect with the moral. But later when it is made a habit, the learning would certainly connect with the story.
  • Have fun: Just remember, the objective of bedtime storytelling is to have fun! Fun for both the Kid & the parents. Unless it is seen as a fun activity, it will become monotonous. This is not a period in the school, this is one of the primary habit building activity for your kid. This activity would help in the relaxation of both the parties & generate beautiful bondage for the rest of life. Unless the fun element is generated, it won’t continue for long & either party would lose interest in it.

Moral stories for Kids

A frog was born & brought up in a Well. Morning Sun rarely reached the water surface on the well

The frog was happy enjoying the daily chores in Well life until one day a frog from the sea fell in the well

The frog of the Well asked the other one-Where do you come from?

The other frog said – “Sea”

 

Moral-stories-for-Kids

 

“Sea? How big is it? ” Said the frog of the well

Then he jumped from one corner of the well to the other & said- “Is it as big as my well?”

The other frog laughed & said “Have you gone mad? How can you compare WELL with SEA?”

The frog from the well said “Impossible! Nothing in this world can be as big as my well! This frog is a liar! Throw him out of the well ! ”

Our World today is no better. A lot of us, be it individual or organizations or schools  have this “Frog in the well” mindset

1. He is from fat & hence does not fit in the cricket team

2. She is a girl & hence can’t play football

3. He is not so good in Mathematics & hence is perceived as an average student for all subjects even though he may be good in Chemistry

 

The World Today is experiencing an unprecedented situation.

We should come out of such narrow mindsets & make the World a better place to live in.

The story above was narrated by Swami Vivekananda in Parliament of Religions & the moral of the story would help the kids to develop an open mindset from the very early stage of life.

What makes Peppa Pig so attractive to Kids ? Top 5 reasons :

My 5-year-old son is always glued to the video clips of Peppa Pig on YouTube.
 

I tried to figure out, what makes Peppa Pig so attractive to Kids?

Some major reasons that came to my mind as under :
moral-story-peppa-pig
1. Simplicity: The drawings are simple, not the normal 3D figs, the characters are like the ones as if drawn by a kid. The imperfections help to relate better. Children get a feeling in their sub-conscious as if they have drawn these characters. Even the stories are simple extracts from daily chores of life.
2. Colour: Children love bright colors. In Peppa Pig, all primary & bright eye-catchy colors are used for instance Yellow, Pink, etc. The graphical content also makes it very appealing to young minds.
3. Language: Language is lucid & very well pronounced thereby making it very easy to understand. Even small kids on non-English background find it easy to understand. This is on account of the delivery of the simple dialogue. 
Read a wonderful short story @ Kidsplay: A frog in a well
4. Short duration clips: The clips of Peppa pig are mostly of short duration. It helps the kids to concentrate and understand the stories. The kids do not want to spend too long a time on one activity. The Peppa pig videos of short duration help the cause.
5. Funny & Witty: The voices, the nasal sounds of the animals, the laughs of Peppa, George, and others are very funny and cute. The storyline also brings in wit from daily chores which children can relate to.

Synchronized names of characters:

Peppa Pig, Emily Elephant, Candy Cat, Zoe Zebra, Suzi Sheep, Rebecca Rabbit, Dany Dog, Pedro Pony 
It also brings in creativity amongst kids and they also get to learn new terms much easily.
Creating something simple is one of the most complex things to do in life. Kudos to the creators for creating such simple yet impactful characters. The top reasons mentioned above make Peppa Pig so attractive to Kids.
