Russia is one of the countries with the largest area in the world. Not only is the region large, Russia also has control over world trade. Russia also have many tourist attractions that famous in the world. Russia has world-famous specialties. They are various kinds of foods for winter, Russian foods in summer, and even Russian snacks. Lately, Russia has become more popular because of the 2018 World Cup in Russia. Even children to toddlers feel the moment of the world cup. Speaking of toddlers, how do Russian toddlers do their daily activities?
Basically all toddlers are the same all over the world. Toddlers are golden age, especially if they are less than three years old. Just like in every place, toddlers in Russia are also trained in games that are useful for developing their brain abilities. Toddler games in Russia are the same as in other countries too. Playing is the work of the world of children. This is a laboratory where children discover how the world works, who they are, who they will become, and what they can and cannot do. Not all games are the same, even in style or effect. Here are some Russian Activities For Toddlers :
1. Symbolic game
For babies or toddlers, one beam is one beam. If he has more than one beam, he might stack or pull them. But since he was 2 years old, he can start using beams for more things. In their eyes they can be houses, cars, or whatever they want. Toys become symbols for other objects. The child may try to feed the chunk as this baby does. If you look closely, he sometimes holds his doll or teddy bear the same way as someone who holds him.
This type of symbol representation shows how much the brain is starting to become. It also allows him to prepare or work through events that are potentially frightening. For example, an intelligent pediatrician who needs to test the child’s ear for infection may begin to see the ear of the doll he bought for the exam. This allows him to know first what will happen to him and help eliminate his fears.
2. Parallel game
Toddlers need friends to playing, the way they play is different from the way older children play. Place two 18-month-old children with the same toys close to each other in the same room. So they don’t seem to pay attention to each other.
But if you see it look closely, when one child takes a truck, the other child might also do the same thing. If the first child looks at the truck and says, “No”, the second might copy and say “No!” Well. If toddlers are old enough to have more progress in their verbal abilities, they sound like nonsense conversations. “Puppies drive cars.” The truck is big! “” Is the puppy hungry? ” “My truck. Vroom, vroom!”
This is an example of a parallel game. Unlike older children, who interact and communicate directly, toddlers play in parallel. While they may appear to play independently, children at this age see everyone’s behavior. Parallel play is often the first step in the formation of strong social relationships outside of his family. Parallel playmates are the first friends for children.
3. Imaginary games
Among children, the line between fantasy and reality is a pleasant unclear boundary. Older toddlers or preschoolers can fight like dragons or fly to the moon, all without leaving their bedroom. If you want to invite children of this age to build a fortress, all you need is two chairs and blankets to wear on them. The game has several goals and pushes the boundaries of the game. This allows the child to explore new ideas and experience life from a different perspective.
Starting at the age of 3, imaginary games often create imaginary friends. Imaginary friends often do things that children can or cannot do. Imaginary friends may have high requests or speak disrespectfully. He may have supernatural powers for adults and older children. He may have supernatural powers or mighty power or wisdom. This is a way for children to have life experiences from different views and to play with the power of guesswork.
While sightings of imaginary friends sometimes worry parents, there should be no need to worry. This must be celebrated. Research by Dr. Jerome Singer at Yale University found that pre-school age who have imaginary friends tend to have better imagination and more vocabulary than their peers who do not. Besides that, they are generally happier and better with their classmates. Interestingly, some of the children did not explain to their parents about their imaginary friends.
4. Collaborative games
The progress of pre-school age from alone and parallel games for collaborative games. This is a stage that must learn important new social skills, such as sharing, taking turns, complying with regulations, and negotiating. This is a behavior that is very difficult for young people to learn. After all, at this age, the child believes that he is the center of the world.
Painting is not a complicated thing that must use brushes and paint pallets to produce good images. You can invite Your Child to play color with their palms, then stick it on a piece of paper (or even on the wall). Besides being fun, children can learn about various colors and make them move, such as light exercise activities.
6. Make a mask on a paper plate
At toddler age, children have begun to understand certain patterns. For that, you can invite them to make masks in various forms. You can picture animals such as frogs, funny monsters, or their own faces. The mask can be colored with paint, given glitters, affixed to cotton, and others to make it more funny when they worn it.
7. Make dolls
