– In the earliest years, the human brain grows at an explosive rate. Young children are continuously interacting with their environment and the people around them. Pushed by their indefatigable curiosity, preschoolers are ready to try everything, always testing limits and asking a lot of questions. This period is key for the proper development of social abilities, short term memory, attention span and self-control.

– By making new friends and playing with them, children can practice and improve their social skills and learn how to manage relations with other people and adapt in society. Michigan State University’s Extension program suggests three categories of fun and useful games to boost the brain development of your kids:

  1. Thinking Games

  2. Active Games

  3. Language Games
