Preschoolers and imaginative play
Imaginative play in childhood prepares the child to think creatively in later adult settings.

Using the imagination helps a child develop the ability to think abstractly, to use language to describe things others cannot see, and to empathize with other people.

Comment below on ways your child loves to experience imaginative play!

Tips for parents:

Give your child plenty of time for unstructured, undistracted play every day.  You can fuel your child’s imagination with music, good books, simple toys, or box for dressing up like a favorite princess or storybook hero.  For fun, you might enjoy making one of these simple no-sew capes to inspire a little more imaginative play.
