Kids are an endless source of questions. They can come up with the most intelligent questions and leave you speechless for a long time. Sometimes you wouldn’t know how to answer the child. Such is their inquisitiveness and the way those little minds process information.
Children love to play with toys. They prefer playing with these toys rather than learn something new or try something different. This is why one needs to introduce educational toys to the children.
Watching TV may keep the kids glued to a spot for a long time. Sometimes they ask brilliant questions, and at other times the questions are just senseless. If you are watching a basketball game, your child is likely to ask “which Basketball shoes Michael Jordan would wear if he had flat feet”. Though a parent may know the need for different shoes for different heel types, one is not going to want to discuss while the game is nearing the end. Kids will not back down until they are given a satisfactory answer.
The one way to distract children from asking such questions non-stop is to keep them occupied. One cannot however stay right next to the child entertaining and keeping them occupied with activities and play. Kids love toys and when these toys are interesting to the child, it keeps them occupied for a while.
The toys have to be chosen carefully. They have to be age appropriate and should be educational too. This will ensure the child will develop as he plays. There is never an end to learning and when the child is engaged in such educative play, they are occupied doing something that aids better development.
Shape sorters toys can make a child not only learn about different shapes but can also teach about how to match similar looking objects. This helps them recognize similar shapes, identify what it is and then sort it out.
