Playful Moments - Excerpt
Play is a powerful learning tool. When children are engaged, they naturally focus and learn. Neuroscientists have shown that actual brain development happens when children are having fun. You don't need lots of times to play games with your child, just an easy idea and a good mood. PLAYFUL MOMENTS can give you over 50 ideas for spontaneous play.
For ages 3-7
Here is a game to capture your child’s attention if you are stuck waiting in a car and wan something silly and fun to do.
Car radio and a fun mood
When the radio is off so that the radio doesn’t work, pretend to be different stations. When she presses a button, you sing a different song, give the weather, say the news, etc…
When you child turs the knob up, your voice gets louder. When she turns it down, it gets softer.
Take turns being the radio and being the knob turner. Your can play this a home with a radio that is not plugged in and turn it into a guessing game. Take turns pretending to turn on the radio and humming a tune and see if the others can guess the song.
For all ages
Painting lines on a rock with water can make anything done look like elegant Japanese calligraphy.
Experiment with making designs on a rock. No one has to worry about making a “mistake” because when it dries it disappears! Have several rocks handy so a variety of designs can be tried.
