Imaginative Play Idea: Castles

We love imaginative play (click here for our post on the benefits and more ideas)

Castles are so easy to make out of a box and hours of fun! 

Develops:

  • Language and communication skills- ‘acting out’ scenarios with toys in the castle 
  • Fine motor skills- drawing moats, grass and decorating the castle all involve development of fine motor skills.
  • Knowledge of history- never too young to be learning about history, there’s no harm in introducing key words and ideas during play.
