Identifying an Interest
Staying at home or working remotely means that there is more opportunity for spending quality time with the kids – and playtime is a big part of that! As you turn into their playmate, you can actively watch your child, pay attention to how they play, and take note of what they play with. In turn, this can help you identify where their interests may lie. Do they have a blast by themselves or do they prefer playing with you? Do they enjoy quiet crafts or energetic games? Do they reach for toy trucks or go for farm animals? Unstructured play comes with a ton of clues that can help you discover what your little one loves and if they’re skilled in it!
