To Develop Cognitive Skills
Cognitive development relates to how children think, explore and solve problems. Developing cognitive abilities is what helps children to assess and comprehend the world around them critically. All interactions with the world are processed cognitively from the first sounds they hear to learning to talk and eventually read.
Activities for fostering cognitive skills: Sorting games such as colour grouping or gathering farm and water animals is a great way to help your kids develop their cognition. Use bright and familiar toys and even sweets to help your kids differentiate between colours, creatures and shapes.
Another way to develop cognition is through sensory play. To engage their senses, you can colour rice and pasta for sight and taste stimulation or try a sensory table by laying out different containers with loads of wonderful textures, colours and sounds. You can use sand, water, sprinkles, cotton balls, pasta shapes and even dried beans for your little one to explore.
