Imaginative Play - How And Why We Should Encourage Our Children To Use Their Imaginations

Imaginative play is when children explore scenarios - something they've seen or experienced in real life (playing Mummies and Daddies or cooking in the play kitchen), something that interests them (pretending to be a policeman or fireman) or even something completely magical and made up - and whilst it sounds quite straight forward, intuitive for most children even, its importance should not be underestimated.
