Let’s Pretend…

🐶 or 👶🏻?!?!One little one had been switching between playing a ‘doggy’ and a ‘baby’ all morning!! We’d also heard lots of doggy sounds; such as woofs and howls!! She was also observed partaking in lots of short doggy naps! Then in the next instance she would put on the baby’s vest and switch fully into ‘baby mode’, again taking lots of short snoozes before waking and crawling around making “googoo gaga” sounds too! Her friends absolutely loved fussing over both ‘doggy’ and ‘baby’ versions of her and we can confirm that both of these characters were definitely the happiest of souls!!We love to watch our children pretending that they are someone, or something, else and feel the drama as their role-play scenarios unfold before our eyes. They become fully absorbed ‘in character’ and utilise found props from around the room to enhance their play; frequently imagining that an object is something totally different, basically whatever is required at the time to progress their storyline further!Imagination is amazing… and enthralling… and captivating… and exciting… and absorbing…. we learn so much from each other as we drive our play forwards pretending all the way!! ♥️ xxxx
