AT Home with Jo Frost - July 2011 - (Page 190)

Ready, steady, play! From games of tag, to gluing and sticking and dressing up, find out how to make the most of your children’s playtime. A little investigation on your part not only means more fun and squeals of glee for them, but assists their personal development, too T he flurry of modern life often means the spontaneity of play takes a back seat to hectic work schedules and busy social lives. Seventy-one per cent of parents admit to over-diarising their child’s playtime, rather than letting them loose to entertain themselves and make up games of their own. While some structuring of play can help parents to get their children into the spirit of things, ‘freeform play encourages the creative and multi-sensory development of a child because it has no structure,’ according to the recent report, The Trouble With 21st Century Kids. Providing the space and permission to create fun boosts children’s confidence and creativity, whether playing alone, with friends or parents. Play can be sparked from the smallest idea, and is the perfect opportunity for families to spend quality time being creative and free with each other. Sixty-seven per cent of parents admit they’d like to spend more time crafting with their kids. To get you started, take a look at the top types of play children love.
