Online Contests for Kids help improve education results, improve intelligence or even a genius, make your kids brilliant thinkers and help with competitions. Especially, online art contests for kids.
Children live in a world full of imagination, they find it magical and through imagination they visit faraway places they have never visited before. Today kids have drifted away to the world of video games and such online games for kids; online games are fun but it does not offer anything for the kids to learn. As parents it’s imperative that you encourage them to get engaged in something creative like encouraging them to write stories or take part in art contests. Participating in art contests is a good way of expressing one’s vision and imagination about the world and the universe.
Art contests are a great way of learning life lessons, not to mention the fun factor it comes with. Every time a kid participates in a contest the kid is encouraged to work toward a specific goal that carries a deadline and comes with certain guidelines. This teaches them an important lesson on competition. The whole act of participating is very encouraging as it builds confidence that let the child move forward from ‘I can’t’ to ‘yes, I can’ mode. Whether the child loses or wins the very act of participating is very refreshing and fun. The mental exercise definitely helps improve their intelligence, make them brilliant and bring out the genius inside them.
If your kid is the kind who enjoys being online, then encourage your child to participate in online art contests. Winning prizes online are very exciting and the possibility of getting freer stuffs will keep the kids remain glued. Result? The children will inculcate a good habit of engaging in creative work. Online contests will improve their concentration level and helps them remain focused in whatever they do. Such contests are a good way of earning pocket money that has the potential of turning it into a probable lucrative way of earning large amount of dollars. The only precaution you need to take is to ensure that the online site offering the contest is genuine and safe for kids.
Here’s an interview with Dinker Charak, founder of Gungroo, where he speaks at length about what inspired him to start Gungroo, and how Gungroo’s tools and apps can bring peace of mind to parents.
Excerpt: Safety is not a setting or a configuration and nor does the web come with a ‘Safe’ button. Kids do not go out looking for trouble most of the time. If the content they seek is presented in a simple and safe manner, they will not go roaming on web. Blocking away kids won’t work either. They will always find a way to reach the content they want to consume.
Gungroo is working on bringing relevant and required content to the kids and become the first site a kid goes to when they come online. This includes games, parent-sourced videos, contests, art apps and safe messaging. More …
Aditya won one of our contests recently. His father Harish KS sent us this note:
“First a fall, I would like to congratulate Gungroo for taking an initiative on the social media for provide an opportunity for kids to use social media without displaying any harmful content on the site. Since we see Facebook getting popular it’s getting to be a very unsafe platform for kids, Now a days kids will want to socialize more than before and for me Gungroo is the answer. Here a parent can monitor the activities that the kids do on the website and be sure that there are no harmful content.
And the contests that are been started by Gungroo gets the kids attention and they would also be eager to participate in the contest. This is something that kids would love to do.
Here is wishing all the best for the team.”

Who said boys don’t like gifts! Though they may not seems as choosy like girls, they love to receive gifts anytime.
Here is the list of the Top 5 Birthday Gift Ideas for boys:
1. Wheeled toys
Boys like to play wheeled toys like cars, bike, trucks, trains, etc. Wheeled toys are the best birthday gifts for boys of age below 10.
Boys would love to go for gadgets more than any other gifts. Music players, phones, headphones and play stations are very popular gifts among teen.
Gifting construction games like puzzles, building blocks, scrabble is a very good idea since boys like building stuff.
4. Warofga Card
Parents want something fun+learn and this is the perfect gift for your boy. Warofga is a physics game and suggested blue color for boys.
Gifting science experimental game is very common among the students and it’s very useful to them as they get to learn more on science.
Those who have seen the Japanese movie ‘Battle Royale‘ (again based on a novel of the same name) have already encountered this theme. So have readers of the short story, ‘The Lottery‘ by Shirley Jackson. Even those who have heard of the Greek legend of King Minos of Crete asking defeated King Aegeus of Athens to send seven boys and seven girls to the Minotaur – a half-man, half-bull monster.
For many parents the movie came as a surprise. They were surprised to know that the book was already very popular among the teen audience. Should the movie be shown to young kids is a very controversial topic.
In an article on the subject by Joshua Gans asks a very pertinent question: And what age is appropriate? When ever a parent encounters a life situation that can be harsh on the kid, the question in their mind is: at what age will exposure to this situation appropriate.
We at Gungroo join the parents on this journey. A partner to a parent who is guiding the kid online just like they guide them in real life.
Those who have been following the ‘Rich Kids of Instagram‘ phenomenon must have at least these two thoughts on there mind:
1/ the extravagance, and
2/ the kids exposing their private moments in public
Parents of kids who are in transition from being dependent on parents for everything to being totally independent do not have it easy. Not only do they have to figure things out in real life, but now they have the kid’s online life to consider too.
These parents need proper tools to help kids go through this transition in their online life. These tools should,
1/ be easy to use and configure, and
2/ provide the whole breath of parental control that allow parent to start from moderating all action and graduating to giving kids complete independence
Gungroo is working towards that – being a partner to a parent who is guiding the kid online just like they guide them in real life. Give our alpha version at try at http://www.rookidsapp.com.
