Kids Pretend Play Activities

After searching Pinterest, I’ve realized there are so many kids pretend play activities. Seriously, some people are so creative!

We use our dramatics area for pretend play every day. We usually change it every 2 weeks so that the preschoolers have enough time to explore.

Pretend play is an important part of children’s development. They learn by imagining and doing. If you stand back and observe children involved in pretend play, they are often mimicking what they’ve seen adults do. We take all of this into consideration when planning what to place in our dramatic play area.

  • How will it be meaningful?
  • What props will work best?
  • How should it be organized?

In this post I’ve selected some fun pretend play activities that will keep toddlers and preschoolers engaged.
