Being around and interacting with water is especially important for our children too. Why? -
Water play provides hours of rich and valuable early childhood experiences to develop children's creativity and imagination. It helps children develop eye-hand coordination, math and science concepts. It also enhances social skills and encourages cooperation.
The top 5 benefits include: - Develop Motor Skills (increases hand-eye coordination through actions like pouring, squirting, scrubbing, stirring and squeezing) - Problem solving skills (encourages imagination, develops creative thinking which plays an important role in problem solving) - Language development (learning new words associated with water) - Social-emotional growth (water play releases energy, which can be invigorating or relaxing & calming for young children. Gentle water play allows them to unwind, order their thoughts and relax) - Science and mathematics learning (water play is used to teach basic mathematics; it introduces children to terms such as full, empty, half and less) -
Water play can be a paddling pool, a sand/water table, a trip to the seaside, or if you fancy heading out check out these great locations. -
Make a big splash and enable your children to explore the benefits of water play for their personal development in more ways than one. ❤️ -
