Your gifted child doesn’t need to build rockets like Jimmy Neutron or a roller coaster like Phineas and Ferb in order to thrive. In fact, the National Association for Gifted Children states that one of the biggest myths about gifted education is that it requires “an abundance of resources.” Read on for 12 awesome ways to give your gifted kid more with less.

Give Him Handiwork
Is your kid’s schoolwork too easy? Let him try teaching it! Ask your child to teach you what he’s learning in school, which is a whole new challenge. While he tries to teach a “newbie” and articulate points in a way you can understand, he’ll be learning valuable speaking and interpersonal skills. It may also shine a new light on a subject he previously thought was boring or too easy.
Do Something Completely New
Set a Good Example
Above all, remember that gifted children need to be challenged. You don't need to deplete your savings to challenge a brilliant mind. Instead, look around you and inside of yourself, and use what you have to boost your child to the next level.
