Why playing is so important for your kid

Do you remember your favourite toys? Despite the fact it might seem that children need toys only for fun and entertainment, they really learn crucial skills through play. Toys make it interesting and exciting for your kid to develop. There are many parents who start occupying their kids with various courses before school to make it easier for them to prepare for it. In fact, there are a lot of things a child can learn much easier while playing (especially with other kids).  Let us see why and how.

So, if you still think that playing is less important than learning, here are some reasons for you to make you change your mind:

· Toys develop your child’s language skills. During role-playing with toys, your kid expresses a wide range of emotions: pleasure, resentment, dismay, excitement, and many others. Imitating your speech, the child practices newly acquired skills with his/her favorite toys.

· Toys help the child learn gross and fine motor skills. There are numerous toys that are designed to improve motor skills when your child is beginning to grasp objects in his/her tiny hand.

· Toys improve cognitive abilities. Playing with toys, even small babies learn cause and effect (if you shake a rattle, it makes noise), which is the very beginning of cognitive processes. Puzzles teach children to put things in proper perspective, identify numbers, colors, and shapes. Building blocks are ideal tools allowing kids to work with all aspects simultaneously.

· Toys improve social skills. This the most difficult aspect in raising a child as there are plenty of social rules kids have to memorize and practice. Toys help them lean critical life lessons, communicate and cooperate with others, and share.
