Learning to play

For a kid, playing is the major way they learn about the world around them. At this age, parents should help their baby play.

from 9 months to 1 year 6 months

As your baby grows, they end up with new fun and educational toys - pyramids, cubes, sorters, etc. Teach your baby how to play with them. They’re unlikely to learn this on their own - be sure to show them what to do. These toys will help your child get an idea of ​​size, shape and color. It does take a lot of time to learn, but most importantly your child should seem interested in what they’re playing with. Don’t force them to learn something.

Stages of training:

  1. Attract your baby’s attention by calling their name. Next - demonstrate the toy, show it from all sides, commenting: “What an interesting pyramid! And what multi-colored rings it has! Come here, take a look."
  2. First, assemble the pyramid yourself, all while still saying your actions out loud. Let your child touch, even take the toy out of your hands. No problem if they don’t let you complete the pyramid.
  3. The next stage is to do the activity again, but this time with the child's hands, holding them with your own hands, directing the movements.
  4. Further, when the kid understands what the essence of the game is, put the pyramid together, alternately putting on the rings. A few days - and the baby will begin to assemble the toy themselves: first randomly,, then placing the rings in order.

These learning steps can be applied to any toy.

Take a picture of the baby during playtime, upload the photo to the application. Write a bit about their success.
