Playing with your Preschooler

Think Global:   A couple of thought about play… The first ideas come from the blog “Hand in Hand”.

Starting preschool is a big step for you and your little one.  Between separation struggles and rough re-entries to the home environment, you can use some help!  Why not lighten up with games that ease these transitions?   Try a role-playing game with your child to normalize the new dropping-off routine.  To smooth the transition after the school day ends, try a silly game to relieve any tensions left over from being in a group setting.

Next, check out the Fred Rogers Center.   

They explain why open-ended playthings are far better than single-action toys.  There is also advice on media and young children.

Act local:

  1. What chronic ” rough spot” in your family life might be made smoother by incorporating a game that you would play together?  
  2. What open-ended playthings could your child reach for to use in the game?
