School-aged children put a great deal of energy into developing relationships with peers and love to use their imagination. They can create games out of many situations.
School age is a good time to get your child involved in organised sports or team activities, or holiday arts and crafts, but you can also support everyday play in the home.
You don’t need expensive toys to make playtime fun for your kids.
