Independent and purposeful play will lower stress and produce a more natural learning environment.
The learning opportunities presented through play are boundless, but in today’s world distractions and complex toys can detract from the value play brings to the learning experience. Parents are more busy than ever and identifying easy solutions to encouraging independent and purposeful play will lower stress and produce a more natural learning environment.
What is Purposeful Play
Purposeful play is not a breakdown between good or bad play. Any play, no matter how insignificant it appears offers learning opportunities that may not be initially recognizable. Even adults continue to use play as a tool for learning, often without realizing the impact.
When we discuss purposeful play we are referring specifically to play that keeps children engaged and playing independently. Independent and purposeful play helps provide a dedicated space for natural learning, without the requirement of filling your home with meaningless toys.
Learning how to transform your existing space into an area for intentional and purposeful play is easy.
