At What Age Does a Child Stop Playing With Toys?
Most children stop playing with toys around 11 or slightly before. Of course, this is different for everyone, and there are plenty of adults that still enjoy playing with certain toys! Stopping playing with toys is also a gradual process – you may notice that a child has played with a certain toy less and less often, until one day you realize they haven’t played with it for a long time.
There’s also no real danger in allowing children to continue playing with toys as long as they wish. If they’re learning and well-adjusted, often an old toy they’ve outgrown can still be a source of comfort and reassurance and that’s okay.
What Shows Do 7-Year-Olds Watch?
7-year-olds still love animated shows and movies, along with TV shows that have simple, easy-to-understand plots and problems that are solved by the end. Phineas & Ferb is a great show for 7-year-olds, and they also watch Ask the StoryBots, Carmen Sandiego, Shaun the Sheep, and Blaze and the Monster Machines.
What Do 7-Year-Olds Like to Play?
7-year-olds love to play imaginative games with fairytale characters. They also enjoy building toys like LEGO. By now, many of them have iPads or tablets and enjoy games like Minecraft and Fortnite. It’s also important to get 7-year-olds outside for lots of running around, so bikes, scooters, skateboards, and other outside toys are important.
What is Developmentally Appropriate for a 7-Year-Old?
7-year-olds are at a range of reading levels – most know how to read, and some have moved on to shorter chapter books like Junie B. Jones, The Magic Treehouse, or The Boxcar Children. They need to run around outside! Not all 7-year-olds have learned to ride a bike yet, but if they haven’t, that’s probably coming in another year or two. They can understand games and enjoy playing board games with bright colors that don’t last too long (they’re not ready for a marathon Monopoly session yet!). Many 7-year-olds also enjoy crafts like painting, basic sewing, pottery, and creating with glue, pom poms, pipe cleaners, and other objects.
