Through play, children develop skills they will use in their school years.
Different Types of Play
♥ Physical — Using the whole body in activities with bikes, balls, jump ropes, hoops, etc.
♥ Creative — Using art materials such as paint, clay, markers, pencils, glue, etc. It’s the process not the product that is important.
♥ Dramatic — Fantasy-directed play with dressing up in costumes, assuming roles as characters, using toys to represent characters in stories, creating imaginary settings, and pretending to be different people.
♥ Manipulative- Holding and handling small toys, building with objects, puzzles, play doh, beads, etc.
