At Piqolokids, we believe that explorative and creative play is the most important, natural and accessible way to promote meaningful experiences in children. Effective activities that support curiosity, exploration, play and creativity do not need to be expensive or technology heavy (technology in moderation is good).
Additionally, nurturing this kind of curiosity for the world around us enables children to lean into uncertainty with a positive attitude. This printable set is about helping kids share explorative and creative experiences with other kids.
Let the exploration begin!

How to Get Started
Simple steps to start:
Research about famous explorers and how the power of their curiosity changed what we know today but also the "very idea of what is possible". Below are some videos which could be interesting to start with:
Here's a video about how three brave women in the past whose immense sense of curiosity persevered over perceived limitations.
Here's a video about how expeditions across different ancient civilisations forged a network roads and maritime routes enabling the sharing of technology, goods and culture across the world. Note: The themes in this video is slightly complex so it's best that you watch it with your child for a more fruitful discussion.
Here's a video of the dramatic and icy race of teams of explorers to be the first people to reach the South Pole.
Think about and discuss with you child the types of exploration themes he or she would like to pursue. Here are some options:
