Play Ideas for You and Your Toddler

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.
