So many of the activities you see your toddler or preschoolers do that may seem silly, are actually helping the brain grow! Here is an example of some of these activities and how they help the brain grow:
Grasping, Pushing, pulling, stroking, reaching lead to better hand-eye coordination and toning fine motor which are the building blocks of hand writing
Spinning, Swinging, Rolling, Tumbling, Dancing, Balancing and Listening lead to better coordination and sporting abilities. These area also to learn skills children will need to learn how to read and write.
Stacking, sorting, mixing, and mimicking all lead to building memory, math logic, vocabulary, fluency and general problem solving.
Play is work for the young child. What seems like fun and games is actually a brain in formation!
