Playing is fun. We all know this but It’s also the most effective way for children to learn. To grow and develop, children need time and attention from someone who’s happy to play with them. Gradually, they’ll learn to entertain themselves for some of the time.
Playing with your baby may seem like all fun and games — shaking rattles, squeaking plush animals, and watching as he tries his chubby hand at rolling a ball. But make no mistake: playing with toys are the right tools to help your baby to learn.
“Playtime helps develop a baby’s social, intellectual, language, and problem-solving skills.”
Toys and games aid your child in learning to master motor skills and figuring out how the world works. When he’s stacking toy rings, for instance, your baby is exploring their shape and what happens when they’re thrown. He’s developing hand-eye coordination as well as learning to recognise patterns and colours.
The most important ingredient in play, however, is not a toy, but you. Your baby loves your attention, and playing is how he bonds with you.
