The quest for new adventures

Your child’s growing cognitive interest in specific, sometimes even dangerous items or matters is reflected in his or her play. Non-simulation games become more and more complex in order to bring about repeated excitement and challenge, while some parents break out in cold sweat when watching their children explore and experiment with demanding science kits.

 

Your child still engages in active games to work out – and this is a positive diversion from hum drum school days. He or she may even discover his or her favourite sport.

 

In the meantime, painting and drawing has become much more refined – everything has to have the right size and the right colour. Now it is important that the painting and drawing materials match the sophisticated motor skills of your child.
