September 21, 2007, Newsletter Issue #101: Dramatic Play

Tip of the Week

Dramatic play and early learning toys that encourage children to pretend such as kitchens, puppet theaters, dress up costumes and cash registers give children a chance to try new behaviors and use their imaginations. In addition, pretending can help children develop curiosity, language, problem-solving skills, and mathematics. The best way to develop dramatic play areas is to make sure they are well stocked with all the details that make them seem real to young children. If you set up a kitchen area, make sure it is supplied with enough pots, plates, pretend food, and the dolls to enable children to play out a scenario.
