Why imaginative play is Important for your child

Why imaginative play is Important for your childPlay is how children learn and experts agree that imaginative play is an important part of your child’s cognitive development. Make-believe play gives children different scenarios to practise a wide range of skills through play, including fine motor skills, communication, problem-solving, and empathy.

Because pretend play allows children’s imaginations to roam free, the opportunities for imaginative play are limitless. The New Sprouts® range from educational toys company Learning Resources® offers a wide range of pretend play toys ideal for a learning environment or playing home. Made from durable materials, they’re easy for little hands to hold and use, and easy to clean.

Looking for ideas to encourage imaginative play? Try a make-believe picnic. Setting up a pretend play picnic is quick and easy to do and can be done indoors or outdoors. Grab a rug, lay it on the ground, and you’re ready to start the make-believe picnic.

Incorporate pretend food like New Sprouts® Garden Fresh Salad Set from Learning Resources ® and encourage your child to serve up bowlfuls of pretend play fun! The Garden Fresh Salad Set is also a fun way to introduce learning about healthy food choices through play. Use the pieces to engage your child in learning about the different ingredients, and you’ll be boosting their vocabulary and communication skills along the way.

There are so many ways to play and learn with Learning Resources. Visit the Learning Resources blog for free ideas, activity sheets, and more.
