BRAIN INSIGHTS TO SHARE: Play Is The Way To Develop Brains Best!

Hillary at Toys Naturally sent this wonderful poem. She was inspired and wrote it in response to the article I posted on iPadding Toddlers When is Too Soon and a few other posts I have previously shared on the topic of screen time for young children. 
I have added photos to the text of the poem to share with you. The poem and photos emphasizes the importance of play and interactions with real objects for real learning and healthy early brain development.  

The printable for this week explains the valuable difference play makes. 

I read a tweet and saw a blog
Young minds, affected, in a fog
Television, switched on all day
Destroying childhood, killing play

I felt virtuous - only half an hour
My wee one was a protected flower? 
I thought some more and then said why?                    
No TV a few days c’mon-let’s try

Next day we did not switch it on
Instead played blocks and had some fun
Out came play dough and some books
Lots of cuddles and a few funny looks

Out came the tea set and a teddy bear
Bottomless pretend tea and cookies to share
On goes music and we go grooving
Wow yes it’s true our brains, improving

That half an hour, we have it back     
To play, to share, to have a yack.
As I chop and cook a dinner for 3
My wee one plays and enlightens me.
