As communities continue to grow more diverse, some things remain universal, like playing with toys and games. Children learn to appreciate cultural connections and differences when they compare different versions of toys with neighbors near or far. Dolls, blocks, cars, and balls, as well as games like tag, jacks, and hopscotch are all examples of worldwide children’s games.

To help children explore the world from home, let them use everyday materials to make their own toys.
- Use pop bottles for pins and try bowling
- Make board games like Mancala with cardboard and marbles
- Mold aluminum foil into different objects
- Or just use paper and markers and see what happens!
