Children continue to learn as they continue to grow in size. How do they do that? Well, they have already been doing that from the time they were little babies. How? Through play.
Little ones are curious, which is why a parent has to be so careful to keep him safe, but it is also the basis for his continued learning. As children get older they want to figure things out on their own and toys are the tools for doing this.
I think that age 3 is the most amazing age of all. They are so full of wonder and questions and they never stop trying to learn and figure things out. Have you ever hear “why” or “what if” from a little child. They are not trying to annoy you. They are trying to find the answers to millions of questions that they have in their mind. They are trying to figure it all out and they will as time goes on.
