3 proposals to integrate game in your day-to-day.
Today, May 28th, we celebrate the International Day of the Game, and we want to celebrate it with you. And, do you know why did this International Day of the Game come up? It was less than 20 years ago that the game is considered a right, thanks to the Dr. Frida Kim in 1999, it was finally established the game in the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
Game is an incredible opportunity for children to enjoy and to have fun doing what they want, which is usually play being free.
Often adults don’t know how to deal with it and sometimes we strive to teach children to live as we want. And many times, that doesn’t work… From Froggies, we propose to learn that the language of children is play, to connect with ourselves as children and discover that, yes, we can, and moreover, it is very nice to do so.
Thanks to the game we can go from the ordinary world with our adult glaze, to a world inhabited by mermaids, pirates and characters of all types. Game accompanies, not only in the discovery of the world, but also in how children develop their imagination, their senses and learn to enjoy their day-to-day.
On the International Day of the Game (and all the days of the year), we want play to be a philosophy of life, and that game is in our day-to-day. This is why today we want to give you 3 ideas to live fully the International Day of the Game:
Incorporate game into your daily routine
Wouldn’t be more nice routine if everything was a game? One of the funniest things you can do with your children to celebrate this day (and always) is to unite routine with game.
Kids have more fun if you play while washing your teeth, waking up, dressing or eating. Try to spend the maximum number of moments of game with them.
Play with your children
We agree that children love to play, but there is something that may like them more (if possible) is to spend time with their parents or trusted adults.
Dare to lie down on the floor with them, and to enter that world of imagination and dreams you have inside your head.
Bring out your inner child
To achieve this, it is important to let out your inner tadpole out, that one who felt like a pirate, fairy or lion. That child didn’t have to work, schedules or responsibilities and it’s here and its now was what it was worth. Because we can learn a lot from them.
At Froggies, we believe that game makes the impossible possible, and we invite you to resonate with this mantra.
