Or what s/he had for lunch yesterday? Where s/he would like to go for an outing? Similarly, there are a number of games you can play with your child, like Tic-Tac-Toe, Dominoes, UNO. These games are very useful to enhance a kid’s thinking and in turn, his/her cognitive skills. S/he may start to learn tips and tricks needed for him to win and also would know gradually to make strategies how to defeat the opponent. Also, as your kid grows older, you can provide him or her with toys like Jigsaw Puzzles, Lego blocks and also ask him/her to follow the directions provided and act accordingly. This will give them a lot of opportunities to prove themselves at learning and following skills.
