The Importance of Fun


Being a kid isn’t always all it’s cracked up to be. Sure, they don’t have to pay off debt, put food on the table or drive themselves around, but with mounting homework and pressure to excel, it can be rough to be a child. This is why fun is so important.

With many homes these days either having small or non-existent outdoor space, alternative play activities are vital. And no, we don’t mean plopping them down in front of the TV or allowing hours of video gaming. For fun to be effective, it needs to promote creativity, take place in a relaxed environment and put the child at ease, allowing them to shift their focus from everything else.

Playing gives children the opportunity to express themselves and explore their imagination while also developing their cognitive and emotional strength.

At Trefoil, we supply a range of products that allow just that. With face paint, watercolours, modelling clay and more, we are here to help your child express themselves, have fun and develop those skills that only come with play.

Most important of all, playing gives your child a chance to relax. They have enough to worry about, so let them have time to shut down and just have fun. Whether you agree or disagree, be sure to let us know what you think of this on our Facebook page!
