Our children really enjoyed the story of Rapunzel and wanted to make a Rapunzel castle.
The children quickly got to work selecting their materials and paint to creating their castle.
The children decided to use the big rollers and brushes. We even explored the paint with their hands.
Once the castle walls were up it was time to furnish the inside.
They brought in logs to sit on, card for carpet and a door.
“This is the door”
”we need a carpet”
The children’s story continued to evolve all afternoon. They had great fun sharing their creativity and imagination.
“This is the bed”
“This can be the kitchen”
Along with being fun, using imagination in their play improves their creativity and promotes communication and language, develops social skills while collaborating with others, allows the children time to explore, to process and to make sense of real life situations.
