We have just posted a fabulous new play idea resource – Family and dramatic play in our Virtual Village.

Family and dramatic play offers children opportunities to build social skills and explore their own culture. Children can try out interactions within the safety of play. They build language, emotional skills, social skills and problem solving.

Family and dramatic play can be relaxing play for
Adults too!

During lockdown children will be missing their peers. Adults can fill this gap when they play like peers in a fantasy play situation by playing a role. This play can also help adults relax. Lie down and relax while ‘the doctor’ treats you. Be a cat and relax in the sun. Play cafe and be brought a pretend coffee. Being part of the play will help adults build strong relationships with children through the play.
