• Need suggestions for games with kids? Check out the Make Time 2 Play Campaign

    Posted on July 1, 2013 by in News Updates

    A new website called Make Time 2 Play launched in the UK is filled with suggestions for fun activities promoting play, particularly play with a parent or carer.

    The site caters for all weather conditions and utilises materials that you might find around the house.

    It lists the importance of playing with children, stating that play can:

    1. Help Children (and Adults) get Healthy
    2. Improve Communication
    3. Increase Creativity
    4. Develop Imagination
    5. Expand Horizons
    6. Build Social Skills
    7. Manage Risk
    8. Learn Boundaries
    9. Act as a Form of Therapy

    As you can see there are lots of crossovers between the aims of the site and the Aistear Framework, so you may pick up a useful idea for your curriculum (or for at home with your family).
