That's right, big kids. While your little kids grow magic rocks and crystals with the power of science, you can grow your own tabletop beer garden. Not much of a brewer? How about a self-contained ecosystem water garden? Fresh herbs grow happily above, while your small pet fish swims below, creating food waste to nourish the plants. Lose yourself in the vast mysteries of space with a telescope or head the other way and explore the vast mysteries of cells with a basic microscope. Whatever you learn along the way, don't be afraid to share your new discoveries with your fellow adults or children.
By sparking their curiosity with educational games from Toynk.com, you're helping your children enrich their neural pathways. Scientific concepts and decision-making skills should never be simply confined to the classroom. It's a great big world out there! The cognitive benefits of play and creative expression have been studied for years and the results are clear. Toys, games and using our imaginations helps humans navigate social expectations like sharing and patience, practice critical thinking, improve memory and encourage exploration. Your children may be better prepared to navigate their classwork, friendships and general path through life all with the power of play.
The kid that is "dissecting" plastic model organs today may very well cure heart disease tomorrow. The pair of friends "excavating" dinosaur bones on your kitchen table may find themselves one day uncovering the fossilized secrets of the Mesozoic Era. Teaching your kids that learning can be fun can help assuage school anxieties and lead to personal success throughout their entire lives. After all, not all games have a single solution and not all problems have a single resolution. In many instances, traditional schooling may focus only on the single-answer convergent problems, but that's not how the world works all the time. Real world issues are often divergent with multiple solutions. Creative and educational playtime at home can help both children and adults hone the skills they need to recognize several points of view.
