Engagement and Persistence
Let's Play Candy Land or Memory
At this age, card and board games can become a fun pastime for your child with his growing social, language, and cognitive skills. Socially, he not only understands the concepts of taking turns and cooperation, but he also wants to play with other children. In terms of language skills, he now has a richer vocabulary to understand a broader range of topics. And finally, his developing cognitive skills let him solve problems, use his memory, and understand sequence and rules of play. While early board games focused on simple concepts, like colors and numbers, he may now be interested in playing more complex games that feature additional steps, challenging his memory, attention, vocabulary, and problem-solving skills. Take advantage of your child's growing interest in games and enjoy playing together!
