Boromi Play Challenges

Playing isn't just fun, it's also the best way for young children to learn. By playing, children can practise all the skills they'll need as they grow up.

To grow and develop, children need time and attention from someone who's happy to play with them. 

Parents should make the time to play with a first or only child. And while brothers and sisters are natural playmates, parents can also play an active role in siblings' games.

But it can be hard to find the time to play with your child, especially when there are many other things you need to do. Gradually, children learn to entertain themselves for some of the time. 

If you're pressed for time as a parent, it's a good idea to find ways to involve your child in what you're doing.

Children learn from everything they do and everything that's going on around them.

  • Get together lots of different things for your child to look at, think about and do.
  • By making what you're doing fun and interesting for your child, you can get your household jobs done while they're learning.
  • Have times when you focus completely on your child. Talk about anything and everything, even what to put on the shopping list. By sharing as much as possible, your child will pick up lots of new words.
  • Give your child plenty of opportunities to use their body by running, jumping and climbing, especially if you don't have much room at home.
  • Find other people who can spend time with your child when you really need to focus on something else.
