If I had six hours to cut down a tree, I’d spend the first hour sharpening the axe.” ~Abraham Lincoln
Reading the Practica Parents’ Guide is the easiest way to prepare yourself for spending real quality time with your child:
When you open the guide at the section for your child’s age, you find a long list of age-appropriate activities. Every activity listed tells you 3 things:
- What items to use.
- How to play the game.
- Which developmental area(s) the particular game is aiming to develop.
We all have good intentions but it’s much less effort after a long day for a parent to leave a child with a toy or in front of the television, than to interact with him. The Practica Guide changes this. It’s exciting to be able to turn everyday situations into games and to discover how to mix and match different components from the Practica Toy Box to play thousands of different specialized one-on-one games!
