Play Based Activities for Social Development in Toddlers

Nov 19, 2021, 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Your toddler has just learned that he is capable of anything – whether it is climbing atop the table mountain, or crawling through the laundry tunnel. Give him opportunities to explore freely without too much interference and too many "No's." 

Benefits Of Play In Social And Language Development

Now, let's look at the other benefits of play in the areas of language and social development, and the enormous amount of contribution it makes towards overall personality.

  1. Social development: Play encourages your child to interact with peers and make friends. It directly teaches her to be with other people, develop habits of sharing,and caring for others
  2. Teaches your child to be a problem solver: Your child learns to control impulses, follow rules and naturally devise plans to solve problems and deal with situations
  3. Teaches your child to express himself:Play creates a non-threatening atmosphere for your child to freely express his emotions, desires, feelings and moods, and at the same time practice empathy and compassion for others around
  4. Language development:Your child's language development happens during both structured and free play. When he comes up with stories, and enacts make believe characters and situations, his thinking and imagination skills expand. He will be able to verbalize dialogues on his own, using already learnt language from his existing environment at home, school, market or any other familiar place. The design of play includes use of lot of vocabulary like up, down, swing, roll, join hands, turn around, click fingers, run faster, jump higher, and kneel down
  5. Other benefits: Play can also have a therapeutic effect, through the means of "Play therapy." Here, both verbal and nonverbal play based activities are used to treat children who are either ill or are under some form of depression or prolonged sadness. The activities are designed and conducted by trained therapists in order to help a child vent out her suppressed feelings

Hello Ma'am ! Hope you are doing well! Thank you so much Ma'am for all your valuable inputs. Just wanted to know how can a 5 year child be made socially active. My daughter takes a lot of time to open up everytime in front of people whom she meets after a long time even though they are close relatives. In front of strangers also she would not come out of her room. What can be done to make her social? Can play based activities be adopted here as well to boost her confidence ?

Greetings Ma'am ! My 6 year old son gets really scared when told to do something out of the box. For instance, go downstairs and give something to neighborhood Aunty or just hand over money to a delivery guy or just take the parcel. He starts to mumble and is not able to communicate what he has been told to. However, at home he is very fluent and communicates very clearly. Why does his mind freeze at that point in time and what is the right way to help him improve his communication skills with people other than family members? Thanks in advance!

Madam which activities are appropriate for a child who is elegible to go to playschool. But We plan to not send him up until the next session. What are some of the pre-reading and writing skills that would help him when he joins play school? His age is 2 years and 7 months.
