Exciting Role-play Ideas For Preschoolers

ParentCircle

Nature gifts every child with a vivid sense of imagination, but as he grows up, his ability to imagine takes a back seat.

The act of imagination fills a child with energy and excitement. By imagining, a child comes up with umpteen questions, ways of doing things, and invents new games and what not.

Role-play is an easy way of encouraging a child to imagine, and keep her ability to visualise alive and kicking while she grows up. Parents and schools should come up with ideas of role-play to promote imagination in their child during the preschool years.

Julie Meighan in her article, ‘Role-Play in Early Years Settings’, published on the website of Teach Preschool says, “Role-play is a very important part of a child’s education. The imagination is a powerful tool which as we know is innate in some children but needs encouraging in others. It is important that preschools provide children with the opportunity to develop their imagination.”

Role-play provides both children and adults the opportunity to be what they want to be, to visit places that don’t exist, or do things that are just not possible. The possibilities are just endless. So, flip through the pages of this ClibBook to see how you can also indulge in role-play along with your child.
