    Activities for Children's Emotional and Social Developmentby Susan Revermann, Demand Media

    Your childs social and emotional development starts as soon as he is born and continues todevelop for years after. According to The American Academy of Pediatrics, early social-emotional development is a fundamental part of a childs overall health and well- being. Help your child build a strong foundation by planning some activities to encourage thisdevelopment.

    Dramatic PlayWhen children are involved in dramatic play, several components of social-emotionaldevelopment occur. They use verbal and nonverbal communication as they play. Vocabularyand language skills are strengthened as they interact. The children learn to appreciate eachother's feelings as they share space and work together to create the play scenarios. Since itis an open-ended type of play, the children can try on different roles and be anyone theychoose. A bin of dress up clothes, puppets, dolls and flannel boards all fit into this dramaticplay category.

    GamesChildrens games are not just for entertainment -- they can be educational, too. Games thatrequire kids to take turns and share help develop their social development. They must co-habitate the play space and decide on what rules to follow. When a child loses oraccidentally gets his feelings hurt, he must learn how to accept the loss or demonstrateemotional self-regulation. Age-appropriate board games, puzzles, field games, races or tagare all examples of games that can help your child mature socially and emotionally.

    Art Projects Art is an excellent means of providing an emotional and creative outlet for a child of any age.If you pair two or more children together to do a cooperative art project, you also tie in thesocial aspect. When the children have to work together, they must determine how to

    distribute the supplies evenly and share the art space to complete the task. Creating a largepainting, gluing together an ice pop stick birdhouse or mixing up a batch of homemade
