Making Time to Pretend

Updated: May 24, 2020

Imaginative, or pretend, playtime is very important for young children! Unfortunately, this type of play is disappearing like the dinosaurs, as more kids are prefer electronic games and YouTube videos. Left on their own, most boys and girls would stay glued to their iPad or Smartphone devices all day. While parents may see this as a built-in babysitter, it’s a good idea to mix it up with other types of activities, such as make-believe kitchen, toy train sets, Legos, art projects, and of course, dress-up. Take advantage of the many available options to foster your child’s creative mind. Being well-rounded will pay off later, leading to success in school and life. Let’s Play!
