This is a stressful time of the year. As parents we can easily get caught up in our to do list. Remember to take time out to play.
According to the Child Development Institute, 75 percent of brain development
occurs after birth. Physical play helps a child to develop connections between
the nerve cells and the brain. As these connections develop, a child's fine and
gross motor skills, socialization, personal awareness, language, creativity and
problem solving are improved. The ideal physical play incorporates play
with social interactions and problem solving.
