Do you still remember your childhood memories? The playgrounds were likely your favorite place in the whole world. Your child also feels the same way about it.
If you do not give this kind of fun in your kid’s world, you would not notice that they need it, since they have the smartphone as a replacement. But if they are able to experience it even just once, you will be able to witness an incredible change in their like for genuine play.
Kids nowadays have almost everything. All kinds of apps, books, and different kinds of areas for kids in malls. Is there a need for a playground on top of those? Here are some reasons that you might find very convincing.
Kids Learn through Play
From a perspective of a child, play and learning are not separate activities. In the year 1995, Swedish researchers supervised an observational study in order to prove that.
It resulted that the kids who take part in experimental learning mixed with the play were the better ones at passing first-grade tests compared to other children who are in the same classes. Meanwhile, in the higher grades, these dissimilarities were not quite obvious, however, the children that learned by playing were still better at writing and math.
You purchase a new device and still unable to know how to use it, but your kid, however, can access immediately the App Store, play a few games, and begin playing with them straight away.
Nowadays, kids are smart when it comes to technology, there is no doubt when it comes to that. But apps can’t teach them everything they must know. They do not provide experience in the real world. Technology is fine in moderate doses, however, it does not necessarily make the kids smarter. They require experiences in the real world too.
