Whether they act out being a mum paying for goods at a supermarket or a nurse bandaging a knee at the doctor’s, imaginary play allows children to create scenes they have built up in their heads and practice solving problems that are often part of these pretend scenarios.
Role play is great for developing communication and language skills, social skills and cognitive and physical development.
Make believe play is the chance for children to act out real life scenarios that they often experience at home or while they are out and about with family – it’s their chance to be the grown up and children thrive from this.
Not only does this type of play practise communication and language skills but it allows children to practice the fine art of listening, and waiting their turn.
Our home corner features a wide range of wooden play kitchens which are ideal for children’s role play activities.
The children’s mobile market stall is perfect for acting out shop scenarios between a shop keeper and customer.
It allows children to assume a role and then take it in turns to be the shop keeper.
Our imaginative play area features a wide range of role play panels which have a different design e.g. theatre, post office, garage, doctors, to name a few. Each panel comes with a fixing bracket which allows you to easily and simply attach it to another panel of your choice.
Also available are our pre-selected role play panel kits. These provide children with the opportunity to act out grown up job roles such as shop keepers, doctors, teachers and actors. The only real restriction with our role play panels is the child’s imagination.
