Why do we need educational games for children? The main types of educational games.

Any infant who is just beginning to walk, is actively developing a new world, learning to walk, jump and fall. Young children love to dance, swim and just to move actively – they pick up small toys, throw them, hide in a box and throw them again, learn turn the pages of books and make marks with pencils.

At this time young children first learn such phenomena as causes and consequences, begin to distinguish colors and shapes, learn to comparison subjects. Babies need approval from adults and a lot of attention: it was at this time formed a future identity and the first thinking skills, causing children to receive all new information about the "adult" world.

A young child who has learned to walk, it's not enough to sit on a blanket and play with toys – now that he's more mobile, the need arises in various physical activities. With its help, parents are in control of the correct development of motor skills in children; moreover, physical activity may prevent the development of later childhood obesity.

There are many games that will not only entertain your child but teach him. Most of these games are readily available at home, using the surrounding objects. Educational games help parents develop children's imagination and to spend time with the child.

Toy train: game with train is sure to please the child and will long occupy his attention. Toy train can be done by hand: this requires three or more small boxes, rope, tape, plastic straws and scissors. Cut small holes in the walls of each box and attach a rope to the rear wall of the first of the boxes, tying the end around a small piece of plastic straws so that the knot did not slip inside the slotted holes.

Air balloon since the control of conventional kite – is too complex to have just learnt to walk a baby, it can be replaced with a balloon filled with helium, tied to it with rope. Attach one end of the rope on a balloon and the other on the wrist of the child. In this way the baby will be easier to control the balloon.

The treasure hunt: for this game outdoors you will need small objects that you can hide, children shovel, sieve and a sand box. Hide small objects in the sandbox for the baby, which will search for "treasure", digging them. Very useful and can be plain old kitchen sieve, through which the child will be able to sift the sand.
