Even though playtime may seem like "downtime" for the brain, there's a lot of learning happening. We're communicating with others; reading body language; experimenting; problem solving; and practicing physical movement, patience and understanding. And when your children play with you, they are also learning — that they are loved, important and fun to be around. We have provided a small selection of activities here. To see the full list, please login to your Summer Break account.
