Child's Play For Smarter Kids

By Victor Hood

Everyone has heard the statement, "Oh, that is child's play." It brings to mind something that is effortless, easy, and trivial. But to a child, child's play is essential to their mental, social, emotional, and physical development.

We all know that children like to play. What some of us don't know is how important play is to a child's life. Play is essential to every area of a child's growth and development.

Kids have an outlet for their energy when they play. It strengthens and refines small and large motor skills, and it builds stamina and strength. Sensory learning develops mostly through play. Our physical development also requires play to develop.

Children are naturally curious. They explore and learn through playing. This can further helped along if parent and educators make the right toys, materials, and environment available for children.

Children learn about the world and discover information that is needed for learning. Through play children learn basic concepts such as colours, counting, how to build things, and how to solve problems. Playtime is also the time when your child's thinking and reasoning skills are at work.

Children learn to relate to one another, negotiate roles, share, and obey rules through play. They also learn how to belong to a group and how to be part of a team. A child obtains and retains friends through play.

Kids get a sense of accomplishment, attention giving and receiving, and the need for self-esteem through play. It develops them, including their emotional side. Fairness is a good lesson, and when they role play, they also learn about the different ways of expressing their emotions.

So encourage your child's play. Color pictures, make finger paintings, build buildings and imaginary cities with blocks, and built a tent in the middle of the living room and go camping! Childhood is precious, so make sure your child will enjoy.
