Scientists confirm that it’s better to let children learn through play
I have always believed that children learn better through play. Get out there and let them play!!
“Scientists have recently determined that it takes approximately 400 repetitions to create a new synapse in the brain – unless it is done with play, in which case, it takes between 10 and 20 repetitions!” – Dr Karyn Purvis
Although this has been repeated quite a few times unfortunately we cannot find the ‘research’ to support it. I am sure people will continue looking.
