    Physical play is an important part of children’s development of gross and fine motor skills. Games such as Walk and Stop utilise their listening skills to encourage children to move and have fun. It is also a good way to use some of the physical energy that a lot of children have.

    Experiencing new smells is very important in child development as it allows them to learn about the world around them. Talking to them about their sense of smell and describing other smells they sense can also help in their language development.
