BENEFITS of an Idea Box and Child-Led Play:

•Open-ended Activities
Open-ended activities give your child the perfect opportunity to lead themselves wherever they need to go developmentally. The activities that you will find in your Idea Box can be as long or as short as you want. They are completely flexible. You can start with one of the simple ideas in the box, and then expand on it if you choose. When you let your child lead, they will let you know exactly what needs to happen.

•Communication
With every Idea Box, there is a lot of opportunity to talk, inquire, listen & learn...for both the parent & the child. If you find that dialogue is not a big part of the activities, do not worry...communication is not always verbal.

•Giving Choices
Idea Boxes are meant to be as child-led as possible. This means that your child will be making a lot of choices. When you give your child choices you are providing an opportunity to build their self-esteem and help grow their decision making skills. Choices also provide an opportunity for them to listen, ask questions, and follow simple directions. These are extremely valuable tools that they will keep with them and use throughout their life.

•Encourage Independence
The learning is in the doing. Painful for us parents to watch, but when you feel like doing/fixing/solving something for your child...Stop! See if they can problem solve and find a way to make it work.
