Invite a little imaginary play with this simple idea
Now that the ground is covered in snow imaginative play has become a big part of our day. I love preschoolers imagination and their ability to transform everyday objects into something wonderful. Today we created a pretend elevator in the back hall mudroom. Each floor held a new adventure waiting to be discovered.
Pretend Elevator ~ imaginative play for kids
Kids love imaginative play. No need to make a big “set-up” just flow your kids lead. You might be surprised by the adventure they take you one.
Since the mudroom does not have a door, I used a tension rod and curtain from another room. The kids thought this was great since it is not a normal room to play in.
By coloring each number the preschoolers worked on both color and number recognition. I also love that it was super easy to set up and we used things that we already had. Fun and free, two of my favorite things!
