Play is important for children because it helps them develop social emotional skills. They get to use their creativity while developing imagination, dexterity, physical, cognitive, and emotional strength. It is also important for healthy brain development. Children learn so much through play. The physical benefits of play is that it builds fine and gross motor skills and encourages understanding of spatial relations. When adults set aside an hour a day to play with a child it enables another level of meaningful play to happen. Your child may use your attention to figure out a tough situation with a friend, re-enact a doctor’s visit, or try something new and challenging, like walking on a balance beam.
