Benefits of learning through play.

Hey readers,

We all know that play is really good for a child but do we know the benefits? That is why I want to explore why playing is so good for the learning of children. 

Benefits of learning through play.

1. Natural way to learn. 

 play is a natural way to learn for a child. Children learn through practicing skills, trying out new possibilities. Not to mention play helps revise hypothesized and discover new challenges which then leads to deeper learning. Play allows children to communicate ideas, to understand others through social interaction, paving the way to build deeper understanding and more powerful relationships.

2. Choice. 

 play gives children the choice such as if they are given different toys to choose from that they want to play with. This is a form of self-expression because they are picking toys that they like.

3. Play helps develop communication.

Play allows children the child an opportunity to communicate through using speech and language skills as a way to express their desires and wants. If the child is playing with others there is a conversation occurring through role-play or making decisions together on what to do. 

Even if the child is playing by themselves you most likely find the child will still use self-talk as a form of expressing themselves such as playing with cars they may say such words as wee or beep beep. If the child is playing with others and the other speaks they can learn to interact and maybe learn new words if they haven't heard from them so therefore developing their vocabulary. 

4. Helps creativity.

with play, children use their imaginations they do this by doing make-believe games or getting lost in present worlds. Children act out different situations whilst boosting their confidence. The child makes their own rules and learns how to follow them or adapt if needed. These skills are helpful in life as they teach children how to navigate life and develop relationships with others. 

5. Gives children space.

When children have time and space to play without restriction, their imitations can roam and they can explore ideas you don't need a large play space. Just try adding simple materials like cardboard boxes to your existing space. This can inspire lots of pretend play, even in small spaces. 

6. Physical. 

Physical play is important for children to keep fit and healthy. Physical play is the type of play that gets your child moving from big movements like running and jumping to small movements like picking up a pencil or tying a knot.

7. Helps increase self-esteem. 

Play is a safe place to practice decision-making and build confidence. Letting children participate in risky play allows them to test what they are capable of. It helps them safely experience their limits and achieve their own goals, ultimately boosting their confidence

8.  Gains independence. 

While interaction with adults and other children during play builds important cognitive, language, and self-regulation skills, independent play also has benefits. When a child plays alone, it can foster imagination and creative play, build persistence and problem-solving skills, and teach patience and resilience.

10 fun things to do on a rainy day.

Hey readers,

When days are wet and you can't bear another day trapped in the four walls while you slowly go insane then you must check out my safe list of places to go indoors. They are child-friendly, dry, and more importantly cheap.

10 fun things to do on a rainy day.

1. Library.

Go to the library, read some books, choose some books and let the kids check them out. It is all very exciting and costs nothing.

2) Garden centre. 

Your local garden centre is great as it has lots of random tat and they tend to have a coffee shop. Not to mention if you are lucky enough fish to see and everyone is happy!

3) Ikea. 

Got to love going to IKEA.  Child-friendly, free play for 3yo, cheap food, and child-themed play areas. Both my boys love this place and they can run around causing them to tire them out, #winning.

4) Coffee shop. 

Hit a coffee shop, my boys adore the mini cups as they feel like an adult. I also appreciate the atmosphere as it is a great chilled vibe.

5) Mcdonalds. 

McDonald's where you can go get a happy meal and it comes with a toy, what more could a child want.  I have written a post here about why I love this place so much!

6) Bus trip. 

Get on a bus for an adventure. My boys love a good trip out on a bus.

7) Green conservatory area.

We live near a free (whoop) green conservatory area for the public. It had plenty of green and a pond full of fish. Beautiful settings and makes a change for me and the boys.

8) Museums.

Faithful museums are free and educational.

9) Pets at Home. 

If in dealt go to Pets At Home, it is basically a free zoo.

10) Odean. 

If you won't have a sit down in a quiet, dark room, go to your local Odean where every morning during holiday time and weekends term time they have tickets for children films for £2.50.

Have I missed out on some good places to take kids when it is pouring down with rain? Love to hear your thoughts in the comment section down below.
