How to Get Your Child to Play More

There are some small things you can do to help your child explore toys longer, and play with a purpose.

• Set up their play area in a room or smaller designated space

• Check that toys are age and skill appropriate.

• Keep toys neatly organized in bins for easy access and for when’s it’s time to put them away.

Use motivational activities (preferred toys) to increase on task-behavior.

• Switch between activities as soon as your child shows signs of loss of interest.

• Help them finish what they started when playing with semi-structured toys such as puzzles or building sets.

• Remember to teach them to put away their toys as you transition to the next activity.
