Maker’s Play

Posted by on May 25, 2020

Play facilitates the development of intellectual skills, and also allows for the application of academic skills. For example, a child playing with water, might use intellectual skills to make a boat, but then apply academic skills to write the name of the boat on the side.

Play is also a time when children develop self-regulation, organization, and working memory. All skills essential for learning academics.
