Open-ended play allows children to use their creativity while developing their imagination, dexterity, physical, cognitive, and emotional strength. Scenarios with Eimmie, Allie, or Kaylie and their monthly adventure accessories empower children to develop their imaginations, curiosity, and, most importantly, their confidence.
Aside from giving your children enough time for open-ended play, there are quite a few things you can do to make sure they grow up with the confidence they deserve.
Teach your kids that succeeding takes a lot of hard work and even more patience. When things get rough, remind them to put their best foot first and to keep on keepin' on.
Allow them to dream and ask questions.
Encourage your kids to think new thoughts and ask the what-if questions. This will help them learn and teach themselves, instilling confidence within.
Explore different paths.
Allow them to explore their own creative ideas and solve their problems in their own ways.
Mistakes and failures are part of the growing process, even if they're not fun. However, it's how we learn and change after each failure that teaches us who we are.
