Imagination, pretend play, and dress up are something all children have in common. Imagination plays a very important role in a child’s up bringing. It helps them to be creative thinkers and will help them to “branch” out of normal everyday life. When we think of pretend play we usually think of small children, but really pretend play is good for any age. Not only can small children use pretend play to play Doctor, Mom, Dad, Teacher, etc… but we can also use pretend play to teach children how to react to certain situations and about different occupations. Here are some ideas to get the imagination flowing in your children.
Things are so different today than they were years ago. Technology today is taking away the time we spend with our children. To often time is rushed and the days are hurried through. Turn off the TV, video games, cell phones and the computers. Use your imagination, get down to your children’s level and see what fun you can create.
