This is my son doing pretend play
I know that it may not seem all that remarkable to some
but to me it is awesome!!!
Awesome because finally my Son is starting to use his imagination
in a more, in depth way.
In our culture we view pretend play as important
other cultures view exploring the land and learning how to track footprints as important.
For so long I viewed pretend play as the ultimate way to play
but as I learn more about how different children play it has opened my eyes
to see that whatever play my son does
whether it is pretend, repetitive, kicking balls, or imitating his non verbal friend
it is all awesome and no lesson is escaping him
as he continues in a state of play.
playing is his cardboard box train that I made for him.
