No Rules, Just Fun!

My youngest daughter, aged three, likes to do everything her older do. They also include her in most of their and now that they are back at school, she has lost her three playmates.

This morning, she took out their board and spent an hour putting tiles on the coloured board in exact imitation of her older brothers and sister. She even paused as if thinking of words to make and then scribble numbers down on a piece of paper just as they do.

Just for the record, I have never seen such long words being made on Scrabble before. For sheer creativity, I think she should be declared the winner:-)

That's great that your youngest daughter is doing some creative things with Scrabble. It should help her with her English.

That's adorable . I dunno if they have this where you are, but here we have a program for three year olds called head start, for pre pre school kids.

We do have Montessori system schools here where parents are encouraged to send children as young as 2 and half years old but I think children should enjoy these years at home with parents. I am not a working mom so I can afford to spend time with her. Our education system is very demanding because medium of instruction is English and children learn to think and write in two languages so why burden them before we absolutely have to.

Great that she likes to play those games and they help her do it. She will get used to them being gone during the day soon

Aw. My youngest nephew wants to do everything his two big brothers do too--he won't be three until October, and he has also lost his two playmates to school. ;)

Give her all the tiles and more, and she might come up with "antidisestablishmentarianism"!

That's so adorable! Board games are a great family activity, and Scrabble will really stimulate their intellects.

There are recent rumblings about discouraging over-use of electronic toys and encouraging children to play with old school toys like alphabet blocks or Scrabble.
