Let the children learn. Let the children play.

July 20th, 2020

Play allows children to use their creativity and develop their imagination and emotional strength. It is through play that children at a very early age engage and interact in the world around them. Playing can also play a role on education and awareness raising. These 3 games teach children how to protect themselves from COVID-19.

Let the children play. Let the children learn.

A child's play

Learning by doing is far more memorable than another doom and gloom message. A lot of learning takes place through play, and while games-based learning on screens has its place, getting out a board game has significant benefits for kids – both socially and in terms of awareness raising.

Check out these three cool games to play and learn in family:

  1. Terre des Hommes' Snakes and Ladders to protect children from COVID-19.
  2. Google's Interland to protect children from Internet risks.
  3. Terre des Hommes' Traditional Games to learn about child protection.

“Grown-ups love figures... When you tell them you've made a new friend they never ask you any questions about essential matters. They never say to you "What does his voice sound like? What games does he love best? Only from figures do they think they have learned anything.”
