Imaginative and other types of play have many benefits. Imaginative play is a way for children to use role play and act out various experiences they may have had or interact with something that they are interested in. This supports their experimenting with decision making on how to behave and also provides an avenue to practise their social skills. Children mostly learn from experience: through their senses of sight, smell, hearing, taste and touch and from observing what happens around them To absorb these new experiences and to understand the world, they need to be engaged in imaginary play. Imaginative play enhances the child’s creativity, helps promote problem solving and socialisation skills. Most importantantly, this type of play helps the child to learn to self-regulate.
