Play allows children to develop their imagination, dexterity, and physical, cognitive and emotional strength. Play promotes healthy brain development.
Play helps to develop many skills: memory building, build vocabulary, learn new skills like climbing the monkey bars, and most importantly, how to interact with adults and peers.
Here are some ideas to encourage play at home:
Offer open ended toys
Set screen limits
Let your child get bored
Offer imaginary toys
Let your child lead the play
Play a board game
Our shields are in and we could not be more excited to wear them!
Smiles for days!!!! And chatter too:-)
