Thought for the Weekend

"Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood."
-Fred Rogers (Mister Rogers)

So true, isn't it? Kids learn through all types of play. For example, when children pretend, they often practice planning skills. Ever watched your little one play school or house? She's planning and acting out a day- a great way to exercise her planning and organization skills. And when you're helping him with that art project? He's learning about colors, how they mix, and the scientific properties of paint.

How do you help your chid learn through play?

P.S. Did you see my new tab at the top titled 'giveaways'?
