4 Activities to Boost Your Kids' Speaking Skills!

Updated: Nov 17

Essentially, every parent’s wish is to have their children succeed in life. One of the major aspects needed to be successful is to communicate effectively. In Ebright, we strive to guide many children to improve their speaking skills through the method of public speaking. When talking about public speaking, we usually think about a stage and also a massive crowd. Actually, public speaking is about speaking to 2 or more people, so even if your audience isn’t as many as you see in a huge event, you are still speaking to them, publicly!


Mainly most children will say they hate school and wish to not attend every day. However, it’s mainly because of the rules they need to follow which makes it kind of restrictive to their carefree nature. Use this topic for them to start gearing up their brain for a speech. We tried this method with students in our center and a lot of them have so much to say, adding a couple of advancements and changing up the whole system to fit their preferences. Try doing this activity to allow them to speak more structurally, giving reasons and examples that back up their points. It will surely keep them excited to share.

1. Design Their Own School


Mainly most children will say they hate school and wish to not attend every day. However, it’s mainly because of the rules they need to follow which makes it kind of restrictive to their carefree nature. Use this topic for them to start gearing up their brain for a speech. We tried this method with students in our center and a lot of them have so much to say, adding a couple of advancements and changing up the whole system to fit their preference. Try doing this activity to allow them to speak more structurally, giving reasons and examples that back up their points. It will surely keep them excited to share!




2. Try Not to Laugh Challenge


This is a fun activity to do with your kids! Everyone deserves a laugh sometimes and it is even harder to hold it in when you can’t laugh! Try doing this challenge with a twist; if they laugh at the video, they will need to talk about why it made them laugh. Not only will they enjoy talking about the subject, but they can also practice good speaking skills at the same time! It’s exactly like killing two birds with one stone. All you need to prepare is a couple of funny videos and that’s about it! You can see the example we did with our students at the centre below.




3. Create Their Own Events


There are many events in the world, but I am pretty sure there isn’t any day dedicated to celebrating party hats! In this activity, let your kids be the creator of an event. It can be as silly as a day dedicated to eating McDonald’s or even as serious as a day to appreciate their loved ones. This activity will gear them to talk about the things they enjoy, hence they will get a lot of ideas and a bunch to talk about. Let them talk and practice their speaking skills using this activity, and sure enough, you will get to see how much they have stock in their minds.




4. Positive Thinking for Kids


Low self-confidence stems from children not believing in their own capabilities. Some kids are blessed with talents and certain perks that no one else has, but because they didn’t actively talk about it, they think it is nothing special. You can try this activity and prompt them to speak about their talents and capabilities that is distinct to them as this can certainly give them a huge boost in the self-confidence department. Besides, they’ll get to practice their speech skills as well, what an amazing activity one can do!



Those are all the activities that we have done in our center to prompt the kids to start talking. Talking is different from speaking publicly but it is certainly the first step for a structured way of communicating. We hope this helps your kids to start their journey towards greatness!
