Let kids match the groundhogs in this fun and creative craft for kid activity for groundhog day.
There are many excellent benefits in children's lives by allowing children to play. Through various activities and exercises, they learn creativity, stimulate themselves, explore their environment, develop their gross and fine motor and social skills, and have fun. Therefore, this is a relevant activity to develop each of the children's dimensions.
Children learn best when they feel comfortable, safe, and free from pressure, and many times through movement, as proposed by the Montessori's methodology. Playing a game is not only an excellent tool for children's development;it's a must.
With play, children get to know themselves, the world around them and adapt to it. For them to learn something properly, they must do so through their own experience. With the game, they should repeatedly do the activity until reaching the final goal; that's why the game is one of the best ways for children to naturally acquire new knowledge.
The game also favors problem-solving and logical thinking. When a problem arises during the game, children are faced with thinking beyond what can be seen. They learn to see the real things, which forces them to seek new solutions by strengthening their mental abilities.
With time and children's development, games change; however, this doesn't mean that they stop providing children's development benefits. On the contrary, their needs change the games. From birth to two years, games are functional activities. Children play symbolic or fictional games from two to six years of age, and from six years onwards, the predominant games have rules.
