As well as bathing babies, taking them on excursions to the library and to swimming lessons, taking them on holidays, visits to the movies…the play scenarios continue to change and grow.
I believe all young children, male and female, should have at least one doll and a doll stroller as this type of family based imaginative play is important to their early development – providing them the opportunity to make sense of their social world (in this case the family unit), and reinforcing any life lessons they are currently learning, an example of which is included in this post about imaginative play.
There were some amazing play ideas linked up in last week’s We Play (thank you), a few of which I included links to from the Childhood 101 Facebook page. This week I have a challenge for everyone who loves We Play – I challenge each of you to visit and comment on at least FIVE links this week, let’s share the link and comment love amongst the play community 🙂
And now it is over to you, what have you been playing this week…
Join us at We Play to build a playful community. This post will tell you more about We Play if it is your first time playing. Have fun visiting and commenting on the great blogs linked up this week.
