Today my toddler son was having delightful son rolling a ball and he was saying "go" ever time he rolled the boy. He laughed so very much and was having such a fun time. I get joy from watching him when he is so very much enjoying himself. Do you enjoy watching your children play? What sort of toys do they like most of all?

They are mostly into video games now. I used to love playing blocks with my oldest when she was little. I'd build something and she'd knock it down. Up down up down. It was fun!

Hi maximax8! My husband and I don't have any children of our own. Nevertheless, my husband and I loves to have all our nieces and nephews in our home whenever they come for a visit. We always play with them and my husband just loves playing with our nephews in the garden, running and boxing each other until they roll down the ground, tickling each other..which of course will make my nieces come and join them too. They just love playing games in the computer but we encourage them to play games with us in the garden most of the time. Our nieces just love playing house with their tea parties and barbie dolls or dressing up while our nephews just love to hang out with my husband, running, chasing or playing basketball. Take care and have a nice day! lovelots..faith210

I love seeing my daughter play - particularly if she doesn't realise that I'm watching. The best games are those which she totally makes up herself, such as designing a theatre by stacking and balancing story books, and then putting on a miniature play for her toys. Hearing her laugh is just the best thing ever.

Sure, I love seeing it. If my son is happy, I will be happy, too. Besides, I like to take photos or videos when my son is having a good time. So one day we can watch it again and it will remind of our happy moment. I love China

I definitely agree with you. I have a 4 year old son, and I enjoy watching every little thing he does, from sleeping, playing, taking a bath, walking, watching TV, everything. It somehow gives me a relaxing feeling, it removes stress from me after a heavy day. When he is playing, I really enjoy it as well like you. There are times that he is so happy, he bikes around, he runs, he plays balls, when he plays legos- he would show me shapes that he made, sometimes, he gets annoyed when he wants do do something but he can't because his too little for it or his toys can't really do it. I get joy seeing my kid play. I get joy seeing my kid do everything.

I did enjoy watching my children play and still do now that they're adults though they don't play around as much. Now I enjoy watching the Grandkids play. Two of them were here yesterday. My four year old granddaughter was having a grand time just having me watch how fast she could run. My 20 month old grandson played peak-a-boo with me for half an hour as I sat here at the computer. He stood on the other side of the desk and would scootch down where I couldn't see him and then pop up and giggle. Playing whatever the activity is so good for them. They learn so many things, concepts, skills, it's how their little brains make connections and is so much better for them than being parked in front of a TV!

Yes and that is the most beautiful to see ever if your child is playing happily. We can see them healthy no pain and still the wonder of being child still seeing to them. As a toddler or child especially if he is a boy their favorite toys are ball those things that gives them excitements when they were playing. Those toys that rolling. They love to move rolled like the toys they play and that was so fun with them. But make sure you're watching him closely while they were playing to avoid some minor accidents.

I used to love watching my children play and joining in with their games if they let me. They played with lots of different things but cardboard boxes were a great favourite as they could be so many things. I now enjoy watching my grandchildren play and joining in with them.
