What is imaginative play?

Imaginative play is when children can use their imagination to play make-believe and play pretend, and it is absolutely essential to early childhood development.

Not only does imaginative play provide children the space to stretch their creativity but it also gives them the opportunity to develop critical skills like problem-solving, social interaction, and how to manage their own emotions.

Here are some helpful tips on how you can also encourage imaginative play at home:

🌳Get outside. Nature is already an excellent playground and there are a ton of activities you can do to stimulate creativity from watching clouds to making shapes with mud.

🎨Art projects. Give your child the freedom to explore different colours, textures, and new ideas with a fun art project at home.

📚Re-enact a scene from a book. Encourage literacy and imaginative play at the same time by acting out a scene from your child's favourite storybook.

There are loads of different ways you can encourage imaginative play at home and keep the fun going even outside of childcare.

What kind of activities do you recommend? Comment below! We'd love to hear from you 😇

"There are no seven wonders of the world in the eyes of a child. There are seven million."

There's nothing quite like the imagination of a child.

A garden to an adult is a forest to a child, a cubby house becomes a spaceship, and a piece of cloth is a superhero's cape.

At Sparkways Early Learning Carrum Downs, we believe that the best way for any child to learn is through play and active exploration.

Which is why our programs and facilities have been designed specifically to provide the perfect environment to let a child's creativity and imagination run wild!
