Do you remember how you played as a child? Did you climb trees, read, build forts or play pretend? Did you like to play by yourself or did you seek out others? Maybe you had a playful adult who added to the fun.

Think of a favorite way you used to play. You were probably figuring something out, practicing new skills, cooperating, creating and feeling good about yourself. This is what learning is about for children.

You can learn a lot about children by watching them play. Are they physical learners? Some are talkers, full of questions and stories. Some children need to see how things work. At Minnesota Children's Museum, we pack play with possibilities. You can help your child discover these possibilities by following their lead. By taking cues from your children, you learn how they play while they play to learn.

What kind of learners are your children?
