From the point of view of some experts, the phrase "educational games for children" sounds like "oil oil".People who work with children know that the child develops during any game - he did, unlike adults, do not do anything mindless, intended just for fun, as though his actions may seem from the outside.However, some games are really develop a child's intelligence is particularly intense;they should not be to impose a child, but if you just ask them to play together, it is unlikely to refuse.
This may become the first developing the game for a child who has just started to crawl.Spoon on his way various obstacles - pillows, phone books, large soft toys, and so on.Overcoming such them, the child develops cognitive function and gross motor skills.Carefully choose a safe obstacles and make sure that in the way the child was not fragile and valuable items, and sleeping cats and dogs.
Many classic games that a child familiar to us and our parents and grandparent
wonderful game for the development of memory and concentration: one person puts on the table a few items, it leads to the child and gives him a look at them for 20-30 seconds (this period can be changed taking into account the abilities of the child).The child then turns away, put on the table one more thing, and the child must determine what exactly was not on the table before.The number of items can be increased by increasing the difficulty level of the game.Alternatively, you can offer your child to name objects from memory after he looked at them for thirty seconds.
Identify the similarities and differences, the development of memory
categorization - a very important feature of human intelligence.Therefore, the developing of games a lot of those that are designed to teach children to share objects on the basis of certain characteristics.Children under three years can be offered to split blocks by color: blue - a blue, green - to green, and so on.Small children can also classify objects on the basis of their shape or size.Children older than 3-4 years it is possible to offer a game for the development of memory development of memory - Play wizard : laid out on a table playing cards "face" up.The child turns two cards one by one.If they have the same color, they take them, and gives way to another player.If not, he has to remember where are the cards of the suit that the next time flip the cards of the same suit.The winner is the one who gets more cards - and therefore the one with the memory is better developed.
In these games you can play anywhere.When you go to the store, ask your child to look for products where a particular color - for example, purple (plum, eggplant), and you can search for specific objects in your home form - round, triangular, pentagonal.It is perfectly develops observation and concentration.
