A child is developing their own interests while learning from both teachers and peers. Some kids like doing science experiments (with your help); others love making beaded jewellery or playing with dolls. Friends are becoming increasingly important, and your child will start asking for a particular toy (if not already) because "everyone else has it." This is the age when kids often become huge fans of computer games, but they also enjoy having their friends over to play sports, card games, and board games. Many like music-related toys, but the playing of actual instruments can still be difficult.
