Stay up to date with the puppet blog with cool ideas on play. “Scientists have determined that it takes approximately 400 repetitions to create a new synapse on the brain – unless done with play, in which case, it takes between 10 and 20 repetitions.” – Karyn Purvis.
Learn lots of helpful ways to cope by completing activities and watching the puppet blog. A child’s brain has its most dramatic growth period from birth until the age of 5. Kids learn from observation and instruction which sharpens their cognitive abilities. A child’s brain really is like a sponge, soaking up as much information as possible.
Playtime is a very powerful and necessary learning tool for children. Playing is critical to a child making social connections, expanding and using their imagination, and developing language and motor skills. Time to make some play dates and get the toys out, future innovation depends on it.

Children seem to develop best, when they have consistent contact with at least three supportive and loving adult influence throughout their life. Positive family, friends and community bonds are extremely important to a child’s success. “It takes a village to raise a child.”… African proverb
