Top 5 Best Board Games for Kids
Children are little scientists. They have an inbuilt drive for discovery that is why we need to encourage them to observe the world and to feel a sense of wonder for everything in it. Maria Montessori, an Italian physician and educator, believed that all children behave like “little scientists” and they are eager to observe and make “what if” discoveries about their surroundings.
Infants and toddlers test the environment by doing some strange things. These include dropping their toys out of their highchair or playing with the water in their bath. Children are born with marvelous imaginations and a keen desire to explore the world. Encourage this in your child—help her to discover the beauty and wonder of everything around her by playing.
