Children need to play toys?

Children need to play, but this doesn’t require toys.

“Children need to play, but this doesn’t require toys. They will explore their environment and examine articles that are interesting to them- from pots to pans to blocks.” says Deborah MacNamara, author of “Rest, Play, Grow” a manual for parents.  Before having my son, I was determined!

This means that children can find a lot of things to play with at home. they can play with things like cardboard pieces, pots, pans, blocks and many other things.

Children of different ages can use cardboard boxes, plastic bowls and lids, collections of plastic bottle caps, and other “treasures”.

As children grow, their relationships with toys change. While babies are mostly preoccupied with being around the people they are attached to, they can also be content exploring things with their mouths and hands.

As toddlers, they become more and more interested in the exploration of objects. During this stage, the key is to give them access to open-ended things that foster imagination. If we like to provide actual toys, things like building blocks, nesting cups, dolls or stuffed animals are good options.

children don’t need prescribed minimum number of toys to play . They played with each toy longer, allowing them to focus more and play more creatively. Parents should allow their children to gravitate towards the toys or objects that interest them.

Hi, I am Roshni Shukla, a Parent, Founder and Principal for an Early Years Education centre, a Parenting Coach and Parenting Blogger. My journey with and around children started in 2005. I am learning everyday with parents and children alike. Parenting isn’t a practice. It’s a daily learning experience. So here are some little tips that can make a parent ready for what is coming for them in this amazing journey called parenting. Let's together bring some change in the mindset about parenting, schooling, society, lifestyle and more.

  1. Use of plastic now a days has factually made inroads in our psyche now – the sooner plastic use is eliminated the better for our society. Otherwise consequences would disastrous not only for the environment but also for our health and wellbeing. Thanks sharing wonderful thoughts.
