Creative Play Ideas
Turn off the TV and play with your kids!
Children are children for such a short time... it is their
biological need to enjoy life and have adventures. As
caregivers, we must encourage curiousity and play.
Children need to be touched by grass, sunshine, fresh
air, and birdsong. They need puddles to jump in and
trees to climb. They need dirt for mud pies, creepy
crawlies, and rocks to skip. They need sticks and bare
feet, scraped knees, too. They need stories, songs,
paints, costumes. And games that go on without end.
It is our task as parents to ensure adventures. At
Escapade Direct, expect adventures.
Children learn best through play, and these activities encourage children to maximize their potential and to enjoy being a child!
"Mom! I'm bored!" "Mom, what can I do?" The next time they ask "What are we going to do today?", you'll have a treasure trove of fun activities to keep them busy!
Here is a collection of fun made-up games for children to play indoors.
Time spent doing most anything outside in the fresh air
is fun and healthy for kids (and adults). Playing
outdoors provides lots of positive learning experiences!
