Mexican Children Games
The Importance of the Mexican Games For Kids
Playing is something that every child knows how to do and enjoys doing it. Therefore, parents should use this fact wisely.
There are many traditional Mexican children games including the numerous Cinco de Mayo games for kids, Mexican Christmas games, Mexican dancing and music game for children, Mexican party games, Mexican fiesta games, Mexican word games for kids and many other educational and fun games for children.
The best way to teach your kids how to read, how to count, how to write, how to be disciplined, polite, gentle, emotionally in control or even how to be moneywise is by playing the educational games with them.
This is the main reason why you should incorporate games into your child’s life.
Right from the beginning you should know that what is fun to one child doesn’t have to be fun to another. Also, what is interesting in one culture can be boring or even taboo in another.
Finally, every child is so special and unique that it is quite naive to expect that one certain game would be equally fun to all children.
Therefore, the best way for you to educate you children is by creating the games according to your children’s personality and cultural norms.
In other words, you are the best game creator that your children can have because there is no one that knows your children better than yourself.
Now, if you got worried or intimidated by the fact that you should create games for your children, you shouldn’t be because the only thing you need in order to succeed is to know your children well, have patience and love them unconditionally.
How to create Mexican children games?
First, find some form of the gratification that is unique or well accepted in Mexican culture. For example “breaking the piata” or receiving the certain Mexican awards such as the “Pancho Villa” award for bravery, “Frida Kahlo” award for best painting, “Octavio Paz” award for best poem, and so on.
Second, define what you want to teach your children and choose the appropriate award that they can win if they do well.
Important thing to note is that you should never give your children awards if they did poorly or if they refuse to play.
Next, research the existing educational games considering the thing you want to teach your children and try to make it even more fun and personal for them.
Finally, just play with your children and enjoy the process of fun education.
