Summer break has come to a close and school is finally back in session for most students in Fairfax and Arlington Counties. While you may be happy your kids are busy with school again, it can sometimes be hard to get your kids focused after they’ve been off all summer. Their brains are still in summer mode and the focus they need to stay interested in school work hasn’t kicked back in yet. Bond’s Escape Room for kids in Arlington, Virginia is the perfect balance of focus and fun, and is a great way to help prepare your kids for the rest of the school year! Below are several ways that taking your kids to an escape room for kids in Arlington can benefit their cognitive abilities and help them stay focused in school:
1. Better Memory
Your child can develop better memory by taking part in escape rooms. Each room is filled with puzzles that must be solved using short-term memory to recognize clues, identify important object, and solve riddles. Brains of all ages and especially young minds will benefit from solving these exciting challenges.
2. Increased Creativity
Escape rooms for kids also can boost creativity. All the puzzles at Bond’s Escape Room require out of the box thinking to decode clues and find the solution. Your child will have to experiment with several possible solutions and apply the scientific method of developing a theory and testing its validity. This problem-solving skill can be carried into any school subject in the future and even can be applied outside of the classroom.
Most children struggle with focusing on one task for a long period of time. Escape rooms help improve this focus, as the time constraints force your child to remain focused on cracking the puzzle. If time runs out, there’s no second chance. This gives kids the pressure they need to focus on the challenge and ignore distractions.
Many children have troubles setting goals for themselves, especially in school. The great thing about escape rooms is that they almost require the players to set goals or objectives throughout the game. When your child participates in an escape room, they will be meeting small goals throughout the entire hour, and that feeling of joy over each fulfilled objective is something that can resonate throughout their lives: if they set objectives and work hard toward achieving them, then they’ll be rewarded.
