We all know that children overcome obstacles and learn new social skills whilst playing. This gives them confidence which makes it easier to approach other children. Social play gives children the opportunity to build character, deal with the challenges of social justice, and develop meaningful relationships with each other. We also know that whilst playing in a low-stress outdoor environment, kids can release energy, usually tend to behave better which makes it easier to make friends. Social activities are an important element in our interactive games for both preschoolers and school-aged children. Music on our dance arch Sona and DJ booth Fono motivate interaction and facilitate socialization, but the interactives have more to offer in terms of social play.
Social play: form friendships by cooperating
Many activities on our interactives require children to cooperate. When playing the game ‘Memory’ on the Memo, preschoolers learn cooperative skills because they will be able to remember more symbols by working together. On the Sona, together you might be able to remember a longer sequence during the ‘Codebreaker’ game which allows you to enter a higher more difficult level. Social play also learns children to teach each other things. A preschooler might learn a toddler to recognize different colors by helping them to stand on the correct color when playing the Color game on the Sona.
