Why Educational Memory Games For Kids Can Help In Brain Development

Oct 30th 2014 at 12:35 AM

While physical exercises offer a number of cognitive benefits for the people undergoing them but recess and relaxation has far greater benefit on human psychology and anatomy. When it comes to kids, games play a vital role in their personality development and that is why brain development games for kids are assuming great importance. They are becoming extremely popular among the parents, guardians, and also among various institutions imparting education and training to kids helping out in their overall personality development.

Impact of Environment

More than anything else it is the environment that can have great impact on the mental and physical development of any person. Playful and relaxing environment will help develop the cerebral cortex much better in comparison to the environments that bogs down the child. At the same time it is not a relaxation without activity but rather relaxation through activities that are more important. That is why the brain games play an important role in the development of child’s brain maturity and overall personality development.

Length of Recess

While games and playful conditions are important for kid brain development it is also important deciding the exact length of the recess period. However scientists also say that too long recesses could be counterproductive and therefore recesses that have the time span in the range of 10-30 minutes could be the better proposition in comparison to longer periods. Such recess will enhance the classroom attention and the recess time can also be utilized by playing educational games among others.

Benefits of Games

Scientific research and study has revealed that there is a strong link between the symbolic and pretend play and the consequential development of language skills of the kids. After analyzing a host of studies and researches published on the cognitive benefits of games, eminent psychologist Edward Fisher found that especially the socio dramatic plays have greater impact on the psyche of the kids. They work excellently as brain development games for them. Pretending together will result in much improved performance in respect of cognitive linguistic as well as social effective domains that are important for personality development.

Study Reports

Some recent studies carried on children in the age group of 1-6 years showed that kids performing symbolic tasks had great fun and it resulted in rapid development of their cerebral cortex. At the same time it was also established that kids having higher marks on symbolic play had much better language skills in terms of receptive as well as expressive languages. Similarly, their involvement in memory games also helped develop their brains substantially and that simultaneously proves the value of memory games for kids. In addition; some of the recent studies also revealed that when kids are involved in playing with blocks, there is substantial development of language.

Scientific evidences suggests clearly that play can promote creative problem solving capabilities in children. This could be ensured by asking the kids to solve convergent problems that have only single solution and divergent problem that has multiple accurate solutions. Play and learn; is the core concept of all these for the kids.
