There’s a lot happening during playtime. Little ones are lifting, dropping, looking, pouring, bouncing, hiding, building, knocking down, and more. Children are busy when they’re playing. And, more than that, they are learning. Play is the true work of childhood.
And when your children have a chance to play with you, they are also learning—that they are loved and important and that they are fun to be around. These social-emotional skills give them the self-confidence they need to build loving and supportive relationships all their lives.
