The Facts... Toys & Activities for Toddlers

These days children are inundated with toys but child psychologists say that too many playthings can actually hamper child development. Studies have shown that children faced with an excess of toys get overstimulated and are unable to concentrate on one activity for any length of time.

So with this in mind, what's the difference between a good toy and bad toy?

Photography as a hobby for kids

As parents, we need to realize that kids must be engaged in creative and healthy activities right from the start so that they can incorporate many skills and grow into confident individuals. It is important for us to identify what activities or hobbies is the child inclined towards and try to hone that particular skill in him/her.  Photography is one of the better hobby options for your kids and is something which can turn into a lifelong passion as well. Photography is infact one of the rare hobbies which one can take up at any age.  By having a camera of their own, kids love to feel like adults and become more responsible as well.

Not Board at all

Six out of ten families will opt for board games over computer games this Christmas, a recent study found.  While gadgets, gizmos and games consoles will feature on many wish lists this year, millions of families will still find time to dig out old classics such as Monopoly, Trivial Pursuit and Scrabble.
