Childhood is a crucial process in which one learns the basic tenets of life such as studying, interacting with others and how to relieve stress by indulging oneself in recreational and entertaining activities. There are ubiquitous games that can enhance this learning process, ranging from the more physically-challenging ones like soccer, basketball and hide-and-seek, to games that focus more on intellectual development of the children such as monopoly, chess and dominoes. In this article, I would like to elucidate more about the manifold benefits that playing wooden dominoes would reward to children and why they should choose this activity compared to other games when they want to enjoy themselves.
Playing wooden dominoes is, first of all, a very intellectually challenging game because it keeps prompting the players to think of their choices of which dominoes to put and the ramifications to the players’ next moves. In short, during the game, the players will be effectively and incessantly engaged to evaluate their actions and to imagine the possibilities in the next turns. Wooden dominoes can stimulate the thinking process of the children so that in the future, the children will be intelligent and tactful in formulating their actions. It aids them in their future studies and it will help nurture them into prudent leaders.
Furthermore, playing wooden dominoes can enhance the relationship and interaction between children. It can serve as a candle to melt the ice between children and because it requires deep thinking, they will also try to think what others might do and this promotes their closeness as friends. Compared to basketball or soccer, these games can cause the children to flock to form their own groups, which is socially dangerous to the children because they will despise certain people and only interact witch certain groups of people due to their talents or abilities. In contrast, wooden dominoes gel them together no matter what abilities they have because it is actually a simple game which everyone can swiftly.
Last but not least, they are ubiquitous and do not cost you much. They are available in most toy shops and purchasing them for the benefits and development of your lovely children will not punch a hole in your pocket. After all, it is really an enjoyable and intellectually-challenging game in which every child can have fun with and learn from and therefore the habit of playing wooden dominoes should be sowed in every child.
