I think a common concept that many people miss is that associative play is a form of play that involves the use of sensory or non-sensory information to create associations.
Associative play is a really interesting concept because it involves things like the ability to associate with things that have similar attributes and experiences. For example, when you walk a dog, you associate the dog with the smell of pee, or the feel of a smooth surface, or the sound of you getting into the car.
So, in order to associate with something, you have to identify it. And if you’re associating with something, you have to be able to understand it first. So in order to make sense of your dog and its pee, you have to understand what it is like to pee on a smooth surface. Associative play is a really great way to use your senses.
Associative play comes in handy for the following reasons: 1) It’s not very time-consuming. It’s fun. 2) When you’re doing the same activity, it will make your next activity more enjoyable. 3) It’s a great way to do things like finding things or solving puzzles. 4) It can be fun to do with other people.
Associative play is the act of pointing out an object or activity, and getting a person to do something about it.
When you associate something to another object or activity, you can draw the object or activity to you. Think of it like a conversation in which you can have your friend point at something and you can then take action.
The purpose of association is to create a bond. It can lead to other behaviors like sharing or helping, but the most important part is it creates a sense of belonging. This feeling of belonging is important for any social behavior, so it’s not a coincidence that we see it so often in video games.
The most important aspect of the association is that it will create an emotional bond. It’s not a good idea to have you walk by a store and buy a book for yourself, only to leave without it. This can be done very easily for other people, but not so much when it comes to yourself. Therefore, associative play is a good way to bond with other people.
The key in playing with other people is to make sure that the “me” you’re playing with is not being manipulated. There is a huge difference between not being able to manipulate another person and being able to manipulate yourself. When you’re playing with other people, you’re allowing them to interact with YOU. This is a very positive thing and it’s not always easy.
