Stimulate your Child's Brain

Stimulate your Child's Brain

With video games and televisions everywhere, child can always use a good diversion that benefits their brains.

CROSSWORDS, WORD SEARCHES, ETC. - You can find word puzzles for children as young as 1st grade. They can be taken anywhere, kids love the challenge and they are good for everyone's brain whether you are 8 or 98.

I SPY GAME - This one only needs another person. One person says I spy with my little eye something .... (gives a descriptive word) and the other persons tries to guess it. Easy to use with all ages.

PHYSICAL ACTIVITY - Sports, dancing, playgrounds, climbing, walking, running, etc. Play catch. All physical movement benefits children. Have them walk up stairs (holding on to the railing) and then walk back down backwards.

LAUGHTER - It is the best medicine. The best thing you can do for your child is to make them laugh everyday.

Just be active everyday and you will stimulate your child's brain more than you know.
