Getting Back to Traditional Play

Share

As children today are becoming more digitally savvy, it is evident that technology continues to revolve around playtime. Fact is children still incorporate elements of traditional play into their playtime. There is no doubt that technology for children is here to stay and will continue to increase, but traditional play is still relevant and has many benefits. If you’re ever feeling like technology is taking over your child’s playtime, here are three traditional playtime activities to adopt.

Create a Scavenger Hunt!

Scavenger hunts are a great way for children to have fun and they don’t require much set up. They can be an enjoyable activity for children, and can be executed both indoors and outdoors. Not only are they easy to organize, but they are fun and make all participants feel included.  To make your scavenger hunt awesome, you will need a list of items to search, an area to hunt and depending on the amount of people participating, a group of teams. When organizing your next scavenger activity, use our Kiddy Up 100 Count Pit Balls to place throughout different areas in the house! This activity will help get children off their devices.

Get Outdoors!

Remember when you and your friends couldn’t wait to get home from school to play outside? With children spending a lot of their time incorporating the use of technology, it is important to encourage them to go outside and stay active. It is also a great way for parents and children to enjoy time together. Next time you go outside, use our Bubble Mighty Wand and blow as many bubbles as you can in seconds! Not only is this a cool activity to do outside, it will keep you active and awestruck.
