Effective use of DIY toys can promote the full development of children

May 13, 2021

Many families have also prepared many toys for children, but they have not been able to give full play to their effects. There are two reasons for this situation: one is that there is little knowledge about the trends and internal laws of children's growth and development, and the other is the lack of understanding of the function and utility of toys.

From birth to 6 years old, children have to go through a series of complex and important developmental processes. During this period, on the one hand, the body develops rapidly, the body grows in an all-round way, and various basic functions of the brain and the body develop rapidly; on the other hand, due to the continuous expansion of children’s living scope and the development of various physical and mental aspects, the need to participate in adult social life begins to arise. Generate the need for ownership and belonging, and begin to practice and form skills, emotions, attitudes, and values. However, children’s lives are not really adult’s. It is necessary to use toys as a substitute to imitate the actions, behaviors and relationships of adults in the way of games, reflect the surrounding life in imaginary situations, form the rules of life, and obtain joy. And contentment.

Parents or kindergarten teachers should carefully observe, and on the basis of understanding the child’s entire growth and development process, specifically consider the child’s current growth and development status, and select toys in a targeted manner according to the child’s true needs for toys, so as to effectively meet his needs. The demand for toys.

The function and utility of toys can be divided into the following categories:

One is to mobilize the enthusiasm of children in activities. Toys can be freely manipulated, manipulated and used by children, conform to children's psychological hobbies and ability levels, can meet their activity needs, and improve their enthusiasm for activities. For example, "rocking horse" toys, children will naturally ride and swing back and forth, which not only meets their activity requirements, but also makes them have positive and happy emotions; another example is "doll" toys, which can cause children to do a variety of activities. Children of all ages can play games with dolls based on their own life experiences, which can vary from simple to complex.

The second is to enhance perceptual understanding and use the characteristics of the intuitive image of toys to allow children to touch, hold, listen, blow, and watch, which is conducive to the training of various sense organs. For example, colorful towers, blow molding toys, plush toys, various dolls and animal toys are conducive to visual training; eight-tone bears, small pianos, tambourines, trumpets, etc. can train hearing; building blocks, plastic pieces, Structural models can develop spatial perception; various puzzles, inlaid toys, soft plastic toys, etc. can exercise the sense of touch; duck carts, trolleys, tricycles, two-wheelers, etc. contribute to the development of motion perception. While toys develop sensory and motor abilities, they not only enrich children's perceptual knowledge, but also help to consolidate their impressions in life. When children do not have extensive exposure to real life, they know the world through toys.

The third is to cause children's association activities. For example, toys in hospitals and doll houses can induce children's associations with hospitals and families, and can encourage children to develop creative role games; some toys for labor tools can cause children to perform simulated tasks such as planting trees, digging rivers, and building. Some toys are specially designed to help them with thinking training, such as various chess games, various intellectual toys, etc., which can improve children's ability of analysis, synthesis, comparison, judgment, reasoning, etc., and cultivate their thinking depth, flexibility and agility.

The fourth is to encourage young children to engage in activities such as thinking and imagination. Through other activities of the hand or body, children form subject-object, movement, causality, and other relationships with toys, which will inevitably trigger children to use their brains, thinking and imagination. For example, to play with "plastic building" toys, children must conceive, conceive, and choose materials to achieve the intended purpose; when assembling by hand, both hands and brains must be used. Young children will also encounter some difficulties when playing with toys. These difficulties require them to rely on their own strength to overcome and persist in completing tasks, thus cultivating the excellent quality of overcoming difficulties and working hard.

Fifth, it helps to develop a sense of rules and a spirit of cooperation. Those toys that require multiple children to use together need to comply with the rules and coordinate with each other. For example, a "phone" toy must have both parties on the phone, and even a pager, which can help children learn about learning and life experiences, practice and cooperate with peers. For another example, the "long rope" toy itself requires many children to use it together. In the long rope skipping game, children need to coordinate each other's actions, thereby enhancing the collective concept.

The mission of toys is to make children like and be interested, so as to arouse children's joy. Parents and preschool teachers need to fully understand the children’s interests and real needs, and consciously and targetedly act according to the functions of various toys. Toddlers choose toys to improve the effectiveness of toys. 9 In the premise of existing toys, children should be given as much autonomous time as possible.

At the same time, parents and kindergarten teachers also need to use toys in a timely and effective manner based on the children's interests, emotions, and life situations at the time. For toys, the concept of "big toys" needs to be established. Toys are not necessarily sold in shopping malls. Local materials are obtained from nature, or simple modifications are made. All toys that can be used to play are toys. By expanding the scope of toys, children's diverse needs for toys can be better met, and toys can be used more effectively.

If the child does not have toys, that is, when there is no sufficient external stimulus, the child will sit idly and feel that there is nothing to do, the spirit has no sustenance, and the psychological emptiness, so the child will gradually become dull. In this case, the child will develop some bad behavior habits, such as eating hands, chewing nails, pulling hair, tearing the quilt, etc. These habits will be difficult to correct when they grow up. In short, toys should be used as an important tool to promote the physical and mental health of infants and young children, and they can only be used effectively if they are used appropriately. An important part of improving the use effect of toys is how to choose toys.
