The Educational Benefits Of Model Kits

Model Kits do seem predominantly to be “boy’s toys”, although girls also enjoy constructing them.Most people will think of famous names such as Airfix, Revell or Tamiya when the term “model kits” is used.
There's still an astonishing range of plastic construction kits suitable for a variety of ages and levels of competence or ability. Aside from giving hours of pleasure and fun to young and old, in some cases becoming the basis of a lifelong hobby interest, plastic model kits also have many purely educational benefits that will help any child develop a variety of skills and aptitudes.
Your child's motor skills will be certainly be developed by constructing these model kits, but they will also encourage co-ordination and planning and logical thinking.Part and parcel of making model kits is to identify parts on the plastic sprue and relate them to written instructions.You also need to identify where small parts fit and in which sequence those parts fit together.How to follow directions is a valuable life lesson that will pay off later!
However, making model kits is more than just an exercise in logical thinking and planning. Your child's creativity and patience will be improved as will the appreciation of the craftsmanship required to build and finish any model, and by extension the value of adopting those same principles in any work or project.Painting the finished model kit will enhance artistic appreciation and also help develop motor skills.
But model kits needn’t just mean those familiar, glued or snapped together plastic boats, ships or tanks.  Other model kits available, such as model rockets, incorporate all the education benefits of the static 1/24 or 1/72 scale world, but go much further by actually working properly!
Mathematics takes on a whole new relevance for a child in model rocketry.Showing how to calculate flight paths or flight duration becomes more meaningful.The imagination required to build and finish a model rocket is matched by the technical skills you need to develop.An understanding of electronics and mechanics will be enhanced by doing something fun and practical with them.  Physical education will also benefit, especially when you launch a model rocket in a strong wind and have to chase it across country when it comes to earth!
Encouraging your children to get stuck into model kits is probably the most enjoyable yet significant learning activity you can undertake at almost any age.Better if you join in too!
