It can be very easy to take toys for granted, but the truth is that toys are essential for the proper development of growing children. Daycare providers and educators are constantly increasing awareness of the importance of play time and which toys are appropriate to help facilitate children’s physical and mental growth.
Whenever a person watches a child play, they are watching a child practice life skills through play. Playing with educational toys only enhances this type of learning. Indeed, educational toys are specifically designed to help develop certain skills at certain ages. Nurseries, schools and private homes are just some of the places where educational toys can be found.
The first type of educational toy is made for intellectual and creative development. These toys include crayons, paint and clay, just to name a few. It’s always fun to see where a child’s imagination takes them through creative outlets. Children love to express themselves through this type of play and these toys often turn play into beautiful works of art for children!
Another type of educational toy is made for sensory development. Sensory development includes the improvement of sight, sound, smell, taste and touch. Sand games, aquifers, and musical instruments all help facilitate this type of learning. It is also fun for adults to get involved in this type of game. Children and adults love sensory objects and are naturally attracted to them.
Physical and muscle development is very important and the focus of many educational toys. Bikes, blocks, and carts all help build muscle in growing young children. Unsurprisingly, children are very active and these toys help their busy bodies stay very strong while keeping them safe, and these activities are fun for the whole family to enjoy while staying healthy and active.
Social development is also extremely important to children and there are educational toys that have been designed to help with this development. Playing disguises, some role playing games and sets can help children learn more about each other and about themselves. It is also a great way for children to learn how to express themselves and to learn how they adapt to the world around them.
Some of these toys facilitate double development when different learning skills are brought together. For example, playing dress up promotes social skills and helps children develop their fine motor skills as they learn to button clothes. Choosing toys that offer a wide range of learning benefits all children who play with them.
When all of these types of educational toys are provided to children, children will experience play time in ways that will help them progress and thrive. A balance of these types of toys is the best way to ensure their entire development. Children enjoy playing with these toys so much that they are not even aware of how they are impacting their own development.
It is important that nurseries and teachers have these types of toys on hand to promote healthy, safe and proven ways of learning for children of all ages. Parents can bring this type of learning into the home when they buy toys for their children that do not promote violence or unacceptable actions. A toy is educational when something positive can be made from it.
It is easy for many people to forget how important play time can be with educational toys. They offer children a non-violent way to express themselves, promote physical and mental stimulation and awareness, and have been developed by professionals to improve a child’s life. Educational toys are tools for children to stimulate their minds, develop their bodies and keep their imaginations alive.
