Children’s Play Forts
Children’s playtime is often thought of as a “break” from learning, but for children playing fort, play is how they learn. When children’s play time includes constructing a fort, children frequently move between important learning skills such as exploring solutions, creative play, taking incremental actions, learning from trial and error, seeing the benefit of applying focus to an idea,and developing social skills as they learn to cooperate with others while they play. Giving a child a toy such as a play fort gives them the opportunity to feel alive and have a wonderful experience while learning how to successfully live in the world.
“Mistakes are not just golden opportunities for learning; they are, in an important sense, the only opportunity for learning something truly new.”
~ Daniel C. Dennett, Tufts University Professor
A wonderful benefit of building children’s play forts is the permission kids are afforded to be exploratory, unique and sometimes even “wrong”. These types of perspectives and challenges present wonderful learning opportunities for children.
When a child is building a custom play fort from their own invention they have a chance to decide for themselves what may work, what they like to build, or in what direction they would like to build next. They will think inventively about which type of stick they may like to add next, curved or straight? Long or short? Or what type of connector they would like to use. This process of trial and error while building a play fort introduces early problem solving skills that will be valuable lessons learned and used throughout your child’s life.
Building Your Child’s Super-Brain
Did you know the neural connections in your child’s brain grow twice as fast in enriched environments with stimulating, secure, and complex play? Remember this when deciding to purchase a play fort for your children.
“The key to this amazing rate of brain development is the excited physical and voluntary participation of the child during the activity! When a child voluntarily engages in excited physical movement during learning their intelligence increases rapidly, expanding their learning opportunities effortlessly and enjoyably! Neural connections can only be grown when there is full attention from a child. When your child is focused on a task such as fort building, a child can accomplish in three weeks what may normally take ten weeks or more! Self-initiated movements, exploration, interaction and physical play for the love and challenge of it are exactly the pathways a child’s brain needs to build permanent, life-long learning (and the love of it!) Movement and play in learning are critical factors in building a child’s super-brain for life!”
