Summer is the perfect time for your child to try out new hobbies, sports, and activities, and no place is better for that than a summer camp. But when your child leaves for the summer, make sure they bring along one of their furry friends, too. Here’s why:
They help deal with homesickness
Leaving home can be tough, especially for a young child. The moment you arrive at a summer camp your child may already want to go home, but a stuffable animal can help. By taking along one of their furry friends, they’ll be bringing a piece of home along with them, easing any homesickness they may feel.
They can help with making friends
A stuffed animal can help with building social and language skills, very important factors into making friends in a new place. They’re also great conversational starters. Other children may want to play with your child’s teddy, or have their own stuffed animals play with them. Before you know it, your child has made friends before the first day has even ended.
They can join in on the fun
From baseball practice to cooking classes, your child will encounter many new and interesting activities. Having a stuffable companion along will make those activities all the more enjoyable, and memorable. Plus, they can have their stuffable animal look the part by donning on a baseball uniform or chef’s outfit.
