Family fun time in our house involves a lot of playing from crazy high intense activity to imaginative adventures. This time together not only brings us closer as a family but through various forms of play my babies are developing important skills.
There is a common misconception about play time. Many adults believe that play is all about fun and games without realizing all the benefits. Play has an important role in developing well-rounded kids. I worked as the Marketing Director for a group of Early Education Centers, so I am very familiar with the key benefits and want to share them with you because I can see these unsolicited learnings in my own kids.
The six skills developed through play: physical, emotional, social, cognitive, creative and communication.
The Genius of Play provides families with information and inspiration they need to make play an important part of their child’s day. Through play, kids develop physical skills, improve cognitive abilities, learn communication and social skills, process and express emotions, and increase creativity. Join the movement to bring more play into children’s lives as well as the developmental benefits that play has to offer.
I want to inspire you to travel! Whether you explore your city, state or the world, just get out and see, do and eat new things! And I strive to encourage women to pursue their dreams. In addition to my favorite job of being the mother to two crazy little kids, I am the Digital Editor for a local magazine publisher, a freelance travel writer, and manage digital marketing for small businesses.
