The Importance Of Play For Children
In the early years and beyond
Why is play so important for children
A child is born with an innate talent and urge to learn new things through exploration and imitation. For instance, when a toddler attains the walking age, he does not like to be carried around. He insists on standing up and walking on his own tiny feet. As the little one grows, the parents should instill new skills and also teach him new things through play, as it becomes important for your child's intellectual, emotional, and social development.
Through play, kids learn about themselves and the world around. They grow into active and mature adults, who behave better and are aware of other people's feelings. They develop negotiation, problem-solving, and interpersonal skills.
How much activity? Why is active play so important?
Active play is essential for all children. The National Physical Activity

(3 to 5 years) should be physically active every day for at least three
hours, spread throughout the day.
