Most of the important information that human beings use in life is taken in either through direct experience or by learning from others. It is also important to state that most of these pieces and bits are built on what we take in when we are young. This therefore means that it is very important that babies be given opportunities to learn at any time available. One such chance is implementing baby learning games to be used during baby play time.
Games that help babies learn something new should be simple, repetitive and stimulating. The stimulation helps the brain develop and make connections while the repetitions help strengthen these connections hence helping the kid’s brain categorize the information they take in. The categorization is the one the helps in content compaction and retention making them not to forget what they have learnt.
Emphasis should also be laid on the stimulating aspect of baby learning games. This is because it will ensure that the child will be interested in the activity and will show this by smiling or even laughing. If the child shows signs of getting bored like turning away, grimacing, crying or even sleeping, consider changing whatever you are doing immediately.
In whatever baby learning games you choose, ensure that it involves a lot of touching. Exposing your baby to touching many different objects will develop their senses and ability to discern texture which is a very crucial lesson in one’s life. This means that passive games that will not expose the child to much of their environment should be shunned and relegated to times when they cannot be avoided at all.
Once your bay becomes much older, you can in cooperate into the schedule games that will help enhance what they learn at school. For instance, ABC games will help them master the alphabet while spelling bees will play a major role in improving the mastery of their language.
One important thing that should always be on your mind while you implement the baby learning games of your choice is that not at any time should you jeopardize the safety of your child. Ensure that you choose games that are stimulating but still safe to play. In addition to this, avoid over-doing your child games. Once your baby is tired, let them have a bath, a meal and some rest.
