props allow children to create their own games.
Bring It Home
- With busy family schedules, it can
sometimes be hard for children to find time to play. However, the joy of
developing an imaginary world, story, or script in pretend play takes time.
Give your child some down time to do this.
Allow your child to turn things
into their own play props. Not everything has to have a set purpose or goal
when it is played with. Give your child an object and see what they make of it.
Your trash could be their treasures (i.e. an old phone book, empty food
containers, clothing and accessories from a thrift store).
Give your child an empty box - the
bigger the better. See what happens!
