Its true!! As kindergarten specialists, we play with children all day long. We pretend to be Chef, Pirates and princesses, doctors and Nurses, astronauts etc and take those little minds to go to their imaginary world and explore.
When the children pretend, they are using their imagination to travel beyond the bounds of reality.Being an advocate of play,I believe the most precious gift you can give your child is the gift of play.
From around 3 to 7 years of age, children act fantasy stories that playfully express, explore and process emotions and ideas. The Benefits of pretend play have been extensively researched worldwide.
When the children play, they are not just playing, they are constantly working on developing their Fine motor skills, Gross motor skills, visual perception, cognition, social emotional and self-recognition skills.
So its right to say that its not just Play…It’s a learning process!!
Many researchers are now focusing on developing role play ideas and toy merchandise. Marvels Heroes and Disney Characters are just one example very popular among children.
