Learning and development through play dates

As far as fun is concerned, we all know how important play time is for kids. Not only are they developing their physical skills and mental faculties, there are also very important emotional qualities to be learned, especially on play dates! So make a date, rustle up some kiddy friends, and bring on the fun!

Play to learn

Here are some fun play date activities that are not only entertaining, they can teach kids a lot about life and emotions, which can stay with them for life.

Broken kiddy phone

Split the kids into two teams and get each team to whisper a message from the first person to the last person. The last person at the other end of the line has to shout the message out loud and clear, mistakes and all. This game teaches kids that it is okay to make mistakes and laugh it off.

Blind mice

Pair the kids up and bring them to an open space near the park. Blindfold and get them to try to find their partners while getting lost in a group. This is a great way to help kids overcome their fear of the dark.

Little storytellers

Gather the kids in a circle and start telling a simple story. Involve the kids by getting them to continue the story with a sentence of their own. Encourage the kids to use their humour and imagination, and share a laugh with their friends.

Make up a gift

Pair the kids up, and tell them to search the garden to find or make a perfect gift for each other. This teaches them the value of giving, as well as the emotion of gratitude when they get something they really like!

The animal race

Assemble your kid and their friends to hop like a bunny, waddle like a duck, or jump like a frog. Get them in line at the park and start the race from one lamp post to the other. Let playtime serve as a great workout for the children.

The tablet hunt

The next time your child asks for screen time, make them hunt for it! Hide the tablet in a secret spot, and put a trail of clues around the house that lead to each other, and eventually to the tablet. Each clue should include a physical activity (e.g. doing star jumps or taking the dog for a walk around the garden, etc.).

Art with recyclables

Why spend money on art materials when you can probably find them in the recycling bin? Combine art and social responsibility into a fun afternoon activity, and at the same time teach the kids about our finite resources on this planet we call home.

Kiddy charades

The rules are simple - one kid has to act or mime a selected word to his friend who will guess the word. This is great activity for creative thinking and artistic expression. Get your child to use different forms of expression (e.g. roaring like a tiger) to get the idea across.
