What did you pretend to be when you were a child? A doctor? An astronaut? A mermaid? Playing dress-up as a child is something of a rite of passage. This childhood pastime is very common 🦈🐋🐳🐬🐟🐠
Dressing up is a form of imaginative play — and imaginative play boosts problem-solving and self-regulation skills. Kids create situations and scenes and act out social events. They’re able to test out new ideas and behaviors in a comfortable environment.
Dress-up encourages creative thinking and communication skills. It also helps kids practice language development and their social skills. Playing with another child or adult requires teamwork, cooperation, and sharing.
So let your little one don costumes frequently and play dress-up often. It will teach them to express themselves and have fun.
