All children play, and through play they discover the world. All parents teach, and the best thing about teaching your children about their world is that you get to explore it along with them through their play. There are so many different ways to play, including pretend play, creative play, share play and learn play. But which ones work best for your child?
You may notice that your child shies away from certain activities while he thrives in other situations. He might love to colour but doesn’t seem interested in dressing up as a superhero. She may love pretending to cook but loses interest when you suggest doing a puzzle. This is completely natural and, as parents, is it important that we understand the different categories of play and how we can adapt to our child’s learning needs to ensure that their play is also about education.
So what type of play suits your child?
