Keep Your Kids Engaged At School With These Tips! #ColorItLoud

*Products received. Opinions are my own.

Isn’t it great when your kids WANT to learn? I love it when my kids are using their imaginations and creating things. I also love it when they are eager to learn and ask me questions they are truly interested in learning about.

To help kids fuel up for school this holiday season and engage them throughout the year, Monster has partnered with Kellogg’s to empower their personality and keep them excited for learning!

Monster N-Tune Headphones

We received the N-Tunes headphones from Monster, some cute Kellogg’s tees and delicious Kellogg’s snacks to devour! Yum!

The N-Tunes Headphones and delicious Kellogg’s snacks are the perfect antidote to holiday distractions to keep your child engaged and excited as minds wander during this exciting time of year! Your kids are unlike any other, so let’s promote their personality power!

Keep Your Kids Engaged At School With These Tips!

1)      Keep them satisfied. Whether they’re sassy and savory or super and sweet, pack them a smart snack to suit their personality and get their juices flowing. Smart snacks are baked, low in fat and available in pre-portioned, smart-sized packets. 
2)     Creative catalyst. Inspiration can strike anywhere from the bus to the playground. Give your kids the tools they need to capture it with a small sketch pad and a supply of colored pencils.  Keep a compact set of supplies in their backpack so they put every idea to paper every time!
3)     Music motivation. It doesn’t matter if your style is hip-hop, alternative or country, nothing defines your style and gets you moving like music. Monster N-Tune on-ear headphones brings your favorite music, movies and games to life with unmatched clarity and depth;  hand-tuned with precision and bass designed to blow you away. Their compact sleek colorful design completes any style and will fit perfectly in a backpack.
4)     Stylish security blanket. Every kid has it, that one piece of clothing that makes them feel like a king or queen. Put that shirt, scarf or hat – whatever it is – into their backpack so they can easily sport it whenever they need an extra confidence booster at school!
 Together we can inspire greatness in our kids by encouraging them to be themselves all year!

    by encouraging them to be creative and to express themselves

  2. I tell my daughter to not be afraid to like something that her friends might not like. Everyone has a different opinion/tastes and I try to let her know that’s ok

  3. I encourage them to not worry so much about what others think!

  4. Vikki Billings says:

    I encourage them to make their own choices and be themselves. I let them try new things and always praise and encourage.

  5. I let them do what interests them and then am there for them to help them. Thank you!!

  6. Chris Mason says:

    By cheering her on

  7. I encourage all of my grandchildren by building their self-esteem, have them get involved in sports or other activities that interest them and always provide them with plenty of praises. We talk about being their own person and to not be a follower but to be their own leader.

  8. James Robert says:

    I tell them that all the time and they are encouraged at church as well

  9. My kids are involved in martial arts, which I think has been a great way to encourage them to believe in themselves and to have self confidence.

  10. I always told them to treat people like they would want to be treated and to set goals for themselves

  11. we just try to tell them not to associate with kids who are mean

  12. Maryann D. says:

    I always told my kids to be proud of themselves and explained that everyone is different and that is a good thing.

  13. Natalie Brown says:

    We’ve let my grandson be himself by accepting him and giving him lots of opportunities to discover and enjoy his strengths. He especially enjoys music and anything artistic. 🙂

  14. Seyma Shabbir says:

    I encourage them to talk about things that make them happy or sad. My sons love to dance and so we play music and dance together!

  15. I encourage my kids by giving them support to pursue their interests and telling them not to be afraid to take risks.

  16. Christy seeney says:

    When my kids show interest in a hobby that is not popular, we support them and show enthusiasm for them

  17. We encourage her to speak her mind and to stand up for others when needed even if she is afraid! We also listen to what she wants to do and allow her to follow it (within reason of course!)

  18. Paol Trenny says:

    I tell my kids to always ask themselves if they would be happier in someone else shoes and why. If they can come up with a list of pros and cons and compare them to a list of pros and cons about themselves….most likely they will find that their grasses are greener on their side and not the other side.

  19. I like to help encourage my granddaughter to be herself by letting her pick our her own clothes at the store even if when she gravitates toward the “boy” section.

  20. melody hodge says:

    I think encouraging them to have self confidence is probably the number one way for them to be themselves. Be who they are by not allowing peer pressure to get to them and doing their OWN thing, not what everyone else wants them to do.

  21. by allowing them to make mistakes and learn from them

  22. elizabeth miller says:

    I have always raised my kids telling them one of the most important things is to be yourself and be true to yourself because at the end of the day you will be looking back at yourself in the mirror. My kids typically have an open mind and why they are not judgemental, they can see things in other kids that they will respond to each theior own but not me.

  23. Terri Irvin says:

    I have raised five children and have seven grandchildren (one of the way too) and the one thing you can do to allow them to be themselves is don’t criticize. It destroys self confidence in children (and adults). Unless they are doing something dangerous just keep your mouth shut and be supportive.

  24. I think a lot of it has to do with encouraging kids to be confident in who they are, and in their own abilities. Teaching them that it’s ok to make mistakes and fail, as that is how anyone who has mastered anything has learned their art/craft. Make mistakes, and try again. Don’t settle for a pat on the head and a “good job,” or “you participated, so you’re a winner.” A little competition is healthy. Teach them that there are always things we can do to get better – but that we can always take great solace in the knowledge that we did our best.

  25. Susan Hartman says:

    I make sure I pay attention to what they say and reply. I like to make sure they know what they say matters to me.

  26. I encourage them to always think about what you say and do what you think is right.

  27. I like to let my grandkids express their feelings and ask how they feel about things they have read or seen and then being respectful of their opinions.

  28. I try to encourage them by instilling confidence in themselves!

  29. I encourage my grandsons to just be themselves by telling them how unique they are as their own person, and to be a leader and not a follower. To not worry about what others are doing and always set a good example for others.

  30. Julie Lundstrom says:

    I try to let them know that it is ok to be you. That they are all special in their own way. I have a son with Autism so that is an important message to me. Also I try to praise them and let them know I am proud of them.
