As your child moves on from the toys and games that defined them as 5-7 year-olds, the ways that they interact with their world begin to change rapidly. New challenges at school and an evolving social-emotional dynamic with their peers present unique challenges to your kids.
Most children are multiple years into their elementary school education by the time they turn 8 years of age. As they reach the higher grades and eventually move onto high school, they learn more complex subjects, problem solving, and abstract concepts. They spend their time learning crucial social-emotional and interpersonal communication skills that help them become well rounded people. During this crucial stage of their development, there are still a variety of games and toys that can boost their overall growth.
For your child, finding a toy that will keep their interest for longer than thirty seconds can prove quite challenging. Discovery Toys has your 8-year-olds’ next favorite educational toys! With this stage in their development, you want your child to continue working on the skills they are learning and improving their day-to-day activities at home and school.
At 8 years old and beyond, the games they play can reinforce more complex concepts and skills. Their coordination has improved, they can work well, play games with other kids, and participate in more mentally taxing activities. The games that they play should reflect those advancements.
As your children enter into their teenage years, finding ways for them to engage in learning based games and activities can prove challenging. It’s at this stage in their development where they begin to branch out and broaden their horizons in new and unexpected ways. Providing them with tools, games, and toys can help them to continue to develop the skills necessary to become fully rounded adults.
