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.
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:
Protecting kids from COVID-19
Terre des Hommes' Snakes & Ladders teach children useful tips and tricks to stay healthy and avoid COVID-19 infection. The popular board game has been adjusted to make children learn all about Coronavirus, social distance and hygiene tips.
Protecting kids from Internet risks
Interland is a free, web-based game designed to help kids learn five foundational lessons across four different mini-games, or ‘lands.’ Kids are invited to play their way to Internet Awesome in a quest to deny hackers, sink phishers, one-up cyberbullies, outsmart oversharers and become safe, confident explorers of the online world.
Child Protection games
Age: From 4 years old
Our sister organization Terre des hommes Foundation developed out of experience gained by organisers and trainers a manual of games that tackle child protection topics. The benefits of traditional games are promoted here to encourage the maximum of participation from the children and their freedom of expression.
