How to choose a game for a child from 1 to 3 years old

We are looking for a lost toy

The main feature of this type of game is that children at their very early age remember the object they liked well, whether it be a favorite bright toy or just some kind of attribute of a crib. The meaning lies in the right way to hide this subject. Many parents, due to their inexperience, make this game a little wrong. At the moment when you want to hide the toy, you need to clearly present the baby about your intentions, interest him in the future search. The child becomes interested in why you are doing this, and he will try to find the thing that interests him with zeal. The main thing is not to overdo it, but to do everything in a playful way. Do not hide the item just under the towel and the baby’s blanket, this will interest it for only a few seconds. Improvise and try to experiment a bit. Put the toy, for example, not under one single diaper, but put them a little on the crib and draw them under one of several diapers. On the advice of psychologists, the child should be interested in this and he will initially try to study them all, along the way, recalling, under which the subject is his favorite thing is located. The kid will think hard (this will be immediately noticeable by his preoccupied expression) and his joy will not be limited when he finds that he was not mistaken and found his toy. If suddenly he doesn’t succeed, just try to hint him, as if accidentally prompting the right decision. Make such a game several times in a row, constantly hiding your favorite item for the same place, and then in front of the child specially put under another diaper. The kid, of course, saw everything, but some period of time he will sit in bewilderment, trying to find in the same place. Tell him him and he will be happy. This happens due to fixing this search option in his memory. A little later, when the child grows up, the time to search for the subject will noticeably decrease: he will remember where the toy was hidden or will find it by convexity on the diaper. Very good and developing memory game.

Play hide and seek

Hide and hide and seeking has always been one of the most favorite games for children. The child is very well remembered by the place where you were until the moment of disappearance. Hide from him somewhere nearby, hinting at the initial place of your location. For example, let the child drive himself to the table or sofa, and after some time look and start the conversation with him. Usually, children are happy to crawl to their hidden parents, sometimes imitating all your actions, hiding behind the rest of the furniture for a second. By the mood of the baby, you can continue this game several times. If he gets tired a little, diversify the game of hide and seek: after you hide, do not peep, but just call the child. Using your voice in his memory, the image of a hidden person will immediately appear and he will begin to diligently look for a place for his detection. Do not let the child be faded away to search, constantly let’s feel about.

Learning to distinguish colors

Try to include your child in the game with various multi -colored rings or cubes, simultaneously trying to build a small pyramid or house. Try to do everything together, ask him to give you a cube of a certain color so that later it can be remembered. The easiest way, usually children at this age remember contrasting and bright colors (green, red or yellow), having studied which you can safely move on to more diverse and close in color objects (purple, orange or pink). So far, the child is only learning to speak, and communicates with the people around him with the help of facial expressions and gestures. At the moment, not only the words and behavior of parents, but also their intonation are very important for him. With the help of such a game form, you can gradually gradually make contact with your baby, exchanging various impressions and studying the world around you.

At a more adult stage of development (about 1.5 years), children have new games that are introductory in nature, there is a desire to build houses from multi -colored cubes and details themselves. It is worth noting that closer to the two years you need to correctly familiarize your child with the rules of the games with sand, show how to properly pour into a bucket and then make various compositions, tell that the sand has the ability to get into the eyes and how to avoid this. There comes a period when girls want not only to download their dolls, but also feed, settled in bed and roll in a stroller. Children’s toys appear not just glowing or publishing a squeak, but growling, meowing and talking. Parents should remember that at this age, motor skills are very important for children, you need to correctly develop small movements and select suitable small toys, for example, beautiful nesting dolls or folding pyramids, in general, games for collecting and separation of objects. You also need to think about daily classes with a child. Such children develop much faster, they improve the speech and actions of an imitative nature. But there should be a measure in everything: do not excessively and constantly load the child with abundance of attention from adults. Several people, raising one baby simultaneously, can cause significant damage to the development of speech. The most important thing here is not to overdo it.

At this stage of growing up, children easily improve their ability to generalize: all square or round objects (balls, cubes) can easily determine, and, for example, distinguish adult clothes from their own. If you go out a little walk with your child, give him some kind of stick, while asking him to draw something or draw him on the ground. It is still difficult for children to draw on paper, but they will clearly be interested in a wand on the street. It is also worthwhile to correctly explain how to behave in society: the baby must learn to adequately respond to a request from adults, wait until they agree and pay attention, sit at the table in their position, remember where children’s clothing is located, and at a meeting and at a meeting. the need to say thanks. Children at this age begin to realize their belonging to one or another sex and give preferences to different games and clothes, who plays with dolls, and who with cars, who wears the dress and who are pants. You should correctly teach boys not to offend girls, share their toys in the sandbox and not fight with other boys.

Dressing children before a walk, you need to explain such concepts as right and left, ask the right handle to put in the sleeve, the left leg in the desired leg. As a rule, these concepts are considered the most difficult to achieve, because the child, who in the near future will have to learn how to master reading and writing, should without problems navigate in the located space. Little by little you need to instill classes in the morning and evening exercises. It is not difficult to do this: for any children’s poem or a song, ask the child to repeat your movements, just do not load too much physical exercises, so as not to discourage the desire to play sports in the future. Later, when charging is already a habit, you can slightly diversify the movements, turning on in advance some favorite rhythmic melody.

Simple exercises for visual memory will help you to develop a full perception of things. For example, you can just put several different items on the table, ask the child to remember them and leave the room, then remove one. The kid again returns to the room and tells what kind of it is missing on the table. Or just put any thing from the bathroom (toothbrush or paste) in the kitchen and ask the child that it does not fit into the kitchen wardrobe. If something does not work out, you need to tell a little. Only the main thing, all this must be done in a playful way in order to interest in further action. As a game option, draw a human face or an animal muzzle on paper, for example, without a nose or ear. The child must find out what exactly is missing and to finish himself (or ask you). In the future, this type of game can be complicated, proceeding gradually to smaller details.
