Play is an important part of children’s development. Play is not just about fun, but it’s the way in which children learn, acquire skills, experience success, and build self-esteem.
There are many ways we can encourage our children to play and learn, whether it be indoors, outdoors, structured or imaginative. The Raising Children website has some great ideas as to age appropriate activities for each child and speaks to the importance of encouraging play with our children
Within our Camden local area, we have some great and affordable activities available, including:
- Organised activities such as sports, dance or scouts
- Creative activities such as music, art or language
- Parks, playgrounds and pools
- Library activities
- Twenty things for Camden Kids and Families
- Local events
Getting kids into active play is the perfect way for children to get their daily recommended dose of an hour of physical activity and also helps them sleep better at night. Win win!
