Imagination develops early in life, laying the foundation for a lifetime of creativity. There are many wonderful ways you can encourage children to get creative – whether it’s through painting, drawing, building, or pretend playing! Whatever your child is creating, it’s important to focus on the process rather than the final product. One way to do this is by talking, asking questions, and telling stories with your children as they engage in creative activities.
Imaginative play is a great way to combine fun and learning! It helps children take different perspectives and learn to empathize with others. It can also teach children how to think outside the box – a critical ingredient for strong problem-solving skills!
