What is Imaginative Play?

At Debutots we love imaginative play, it's what our story based sessions are all about! But what does it mean, how is it helpful to our children, and how can you do it once you are back at home and it's another week to wait until Debutots again?

The Learning 4 Kids website describes imaginative play as children role-playing and acting out experiences. There are many ways you can encourage this at home, from creating a simple, blanket den under your table to providing them with some fun (cheap) props. Why not check out their ideas to keep you going until we see you again at Debutots?
