When does he start playing?

When does he start playing?

The answer to this question is closely related to what everyone considers to be play. Some of us will say that babies play, others will argue that only when organized play occurs can we talk about it as an activity in itself.

Regardless of the moment, we now refer to the interactions between parents and children, whether they are babies or mothers, whose purpose is pleasure, fun, getting a well-being, spending time or even developing the little one.

So we remember how we played with the child in the first year of life, how he started playing alone with others, who were his first toys, which he got attached to and got scared of. When he started asking for toys and what were his favorites.

We say about some children playing "beautifully", about others "not playing alone", about "not playing with children, but only with adults", about others "not having the patience to play". Beyond each of these expressions, we see a certain kind of being of the child and of its interaction with the environment in which it grows. Watching the play as early as possible is very valuable because it can help prevent some language, communication, focus attention, interaction with others.

Regarding the toy as an object, we are often concerned about it, to buy it, to please the children, to be safe, beautiful, useful, etc.

What are your favorite toys?

What toys does the child require?

How and where do you buy them?

What are the games and toys you can use to teach the little one different things? Here are specific problems for parents, grandparents but also for those just waiting for a child.

So, we invite you and the children to the first meeting of the project "DE (-A) WHY DO WE PLAY?" to play together and to tackle both aspects related to the activity of play in the development of the child, as well as toys as tools for this activity.
