Have you heard of the saying 'All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy'? Well, the saying goes true for children. Kids need to play in order to enhance the proper development of their body.

Sound Mind


Apart from making us healthy, games and proper recreation help us develop a sound mind. A sound mind in a sound body is a great combination!

 

Sportsmanship and the Fighting Spirit


Games not only entertain kids but also instil sportsmanship and the fighting spirit in them. Qualities such as obedience, cooperation, leadership, patience and tolerance are developed in children. These qualities definitely help them in the long run. Games also help in developing an optimistic attitude in life.

 

Recreation

Playing games is an important part of recreation, and kids are very happy during games. Apart from injuries, games have no harmful effect on your body. They instead refresh your mind. Sports have therefore found a place in the school curriculum.

 

Confidence


Games build a confidence factor among students. Parents should allow their children to play their favourite games. Both indoor and outdoor games are equally important for kids. Children who play on a regular basis are more outgoing than those who hardly get to play.
