Without a doubt one of the most popular imaginary figures that has captured the minds of children especially those of preschool kids is the Spiderman. It is only normal for young children to be inspired and feel like becoming their super heroes even if they are fictional characters. We can help them learn positive things from these series as they entertain themselves. These games are more of mental than motor activity, except for the limited movement of the hands and fingers.
Amazing adventures involving the hero is a work book designed to be used by very young children through to grade six with the participation of parents and educators.
It exposes readers to words bringing them to develop reading skills and increase their oral aptitudes while having fun. Since these activities are graded from very easy to difficult, it is easy to be adapted to any particular age or need.
Memory game: This game comprises seventy two cards arranged face down on a table. It takes two or more to play. The player picks a first card and will try to pick an identical card in a second attempt, if he or she fails a third pick is allowed. If this third trial fails all the cards go back to the table for the next person to take a turn. The one who succeeds in selecting a pair to his or her card will continue to play till failure. At the end the one who has had the most pairs is the winner.
There are also the plug and play video games permitting the child to amuse himself and learn at the same time. The player on the controls can be party to his heros exploits whilst he swings from building to building in pursuit of the bad guys. It is an interactive play that can be engaged in by one or two persons at the same time.
Kids who love to do colouring can also have their share using online colouring pages to work. It is more interesting this way for the player can change the colour where it is necessary, whereas on paper this is not possible, it makes it more fun.
Finally, action toys could be used to make these younger kids recreate stories around them. They should be encouraged to use their own imagination based on the posture of their hero in static action form to tell a story, not necessarily conforming to the original from which the image is made.
I already imagine myself being there amongst these bright eyed bustling little angels each trying to have a turn at telling an unedited version of the Spiderman story. The fun, oh the fun, no wonder it is great to be young.
