Children learn through imagining and doing. Children are always using their imaginations. Have you ever seen your child pick up a block and pretend it's a train? They are using an object to represent something else while giving it action and motion. Pretend play is not as simple as it may seem. The process of pretending builds skills in many essential developmental areas. Dramatic play supports social and emotional skills, math and literacy, fine motor skills and so much more. Let their imaginations run free!
