Ah, sweet, sweet summer!
Everyone loves summer, but as Canadians, we have a particular affinity for this season, with the long darkness of winter finally being traded up for blissful sun-drenched days and summer air filled with the cheerful chatter of children playing.
Playtime helps form the portrait of summer—an enchanting time for play, love, and togetherness, brought to life by toys that help create lasting memories. As we start to enjoy summer, it's time to unearth some top toys from The Playful Peacock to usher in a summer of unabated fun and laughter!
Kids Love Summer
There are several reasons why children love to play during the summer:
A Break from School: Summer usually means no school, providing children with ample free time to engage in their favorite activities and explore new ones.
Warm and Inviting Weather: The summer weather is perfect for outdoor games and adventures, allowing kids to swim, picnic, play sports, or just enjoy the outdoors.
More Daylight Hours: The longer days of summer offer more play opportunities and allow children to stay outside longer. This not only gives them more time for various activities but also promotes the development of social skills through interaction with peers and family.
Sensory Experiences: Summer allows for a wide range of sensory experiences. Kids can feel the sun's warmth, the water's coolness, and the sand's texture, which can be both enjoyable and contribute to cognitive development.
Promotes Creativity: The freedom and relaxation of summer can inspire creativity. Without the structure of school, children can follow their interests, imagine new games, or delve deeper into their favorite activities.
