We all know that today’s children are very quick to learn a new technology or device. It would seem children are much better at adapting to these new technologies than they are at social skills. While it is extremely important for children to learn to use technology, it is equally important for them to have fun while learning and doing that creatively!
Generation Z is a name used to refer to people born after the Millennial Generation. Generation Z kids are less inclined to play outside and have tons more friends than Generation X would have, for example.
It didn’t take therapists and doctors long to attempt to find a correlation between the increase of children being diagnosed with ADHD, kids struggles with reading, writing and so forth and their lack of playing in the true sense of the word.
A big part of the problem is perhaps, that children cannot roam the streets as the Generation X kids used to do for safety reasons. Children are also not growing up in big houses with bigger gardens anymore. This, however, does not mean that they are completely incapable of playing and knowing how to play without a technical device or gadget attached to the activity.
Educational toys and DIY toys are known to not only increase a child’s ability to cope better later in life with regular life tasks, it also increases their ability to think creatively and problem solve their way to a successful future.
