Play in general is great for learning. Imaginative or pretend play benefits your child in every area of development, from cognitive to physical to social/emotional.
Pretend play doesn’t have to be an elaborate affair. There are plenty of opportunities for you and your child to pretend every day:
- When you’re driving to the grocery store, pretend the car is a plane or spaceship headed into the sky.
- Pretend you’re explorers while going for a walk.
- Use dolls, hand puppets or any household objects to set a scene and tell a story.
