Play is an essential part of a child's development. Not only is it fun, but it also helps children learn and grow. As a parent, you can support your child's learning through play by creating a playful learning environment and engaging in activities that promote learning and development.
One way to support your child's learning through play is by creating a dedicated play space in your home. This can be a room, a corner of a room, or even a large box or bin filled with toys and other items that your child can use to play. This space should contain a variety of age-appropriate toys and materials that your child can use to explore, create, and learn. If you want to learn more about what toys and materials to choose, from and how to set up your play space you can take the Setting Up your Play Space and Building Independent Play Skills workshop on the Earlybird app.
Another way to support your child's learning through play is by engaging in activities that promote learning and development. The Earlybird App has over 400 simple play activities for you to try with your little one that is as educational as they are fun. Simple everyday things like reading books together, singing songs, playing games, and doing puzzles have rich educational value for your kids. These activities can help your child develop important skills such as language, problem-solving, and fine motor skills.
It's also important to let your child lead the play. While it can be tempting to direct the play and guide your child towards certain activities, it's important to let your child explore and discover on their own. This allows them to develop their own interests and curiosity, which can lead to even more learning and growth. Remember it is process over Pinterest perfect final product around here :)
