When children play, it always means they are learning. Children need time to play alone or with others, both inside and outside, with or without toys. Children have the right to play. Your creativity is encouraged as well as your social and emotional skills. In the play, children learn their limits, experience challenges, and surpass themselves.
Play is important for children’s education!
Children will get to know the world through play. They make their own decisions and choose when and with whom. They can follow their own needs and interests. Adults often don’t understand the meaning of children’s games. But she doesn’t have to. Every day children discover something new, something they don’t know, something they haven’t seen, heard or felt.
Through play, children perceive different phenomena, not only find answers to questions, but also perceive themselves and their abilities, and experience themselves as self-effective. While playing, they pursue their interests, gain independent experience, test their limits, and seek and master challenges. Playing in nature or the children’s room, with or without toys, alone or with others, always means planning, thinking, talking, trying, discovering, and learning!
Because playing promotes team spirit!
Playing with others teaches children important social skills. In the first place, children come into contact with other children through playing with them and their associated mutual benefits. You will experience friendship, certainly discussions from time to time, but you will also experience reconciliation. They learn to benefit from each other, coordinate and compromise, negotiate rules together, and take responsibility for themselves and others.
By playing together, children are also older or younger, speak different languages, come from different cultures, have different histories and family backgrounds, are of the opposite gender, and have disabilities. Experience other children who are or have special needs. Through play, we will actively engage with the living environment of other children, learn consideration and understanding, and experience this equally.
Play promotes creativity!
All children can discover different sensations and release their imagination through play. A good example of this is a role-playing game. Here the children put themselves in a situation that may not exist. You are someone or something else. They have their image of this role, filling it with life and ideas, building their world. But it’s not just role-playing, but all forms of play that show how creative children are. By experimenting, building, and combining different objects and materials, children are constantly opening up new possibilities and insights. Individual building blocks are small structures that can collapse very quickly at first.
Because the game inspires!
It’s enough to see the kids immerse themselves in the game. How they drive the imagination, how much fun they are alone and with others. But also about how focused she is on challenging the world and building skills and abilities. We also observe the curiosity and enthusiasm they take and accept new challenges, and the courage and enthusiasm they push their limits. Kids enjoy not only “man, don’t worry!”, Hide and seek games, splash games, role-playing games, mountaineering, online games (inversegamer), tower construction, but also beyond themselves.
