We all delight in the wonder of imaginative play and feel instinctively that it’s good for our children. But why? To process and make sense of their daily experiences, children use imaginative play.
Entering into the world of make believe builds social skills in essential developmental areas – decision making, taking turns, responsibility, empathy, and creative problem solving. Imaginary play helps kids express all ranges of emotion and behavior and to experiment with their effects on others. Plus, scientists say that pretend play in early childhood helps us become more flexible and creative human beings!
All types of play, especially imaginative, lie at the core of Livie & Luca and Mosey Handmade’s philosophies so we are eager to encourage it and talk about its benefits! Not only do our shoes and crowns promote imaginative play, but our designs are products of our own imaginations rooted in the play of childhood.
Our giveaway this week is from Lovelane Designs, makers of truly special wearable items to encourage imaginative play – capes, wings, hats, costumes and more!
“We tell our kids they can be anything they want as long as they can imagine it. At Lovelane Designs, we want to help young imaginations soar all day long - and keep them dreaming at night." Lane Huerta, founder of Lovelane
