Play is an important milestone for babies and toddlers as it helps with development and reasoning skills. Play also holds a crucial role in providing a safe, caring, and protective attachment relationship between caregiver and child. Through pretend play, caregivers can help children express thoughts and emotions. Emotions are responses to different stimuli and children can learn appropriate ways to work through their emotions. Through storytelling caregivers can help children identify emotions without labeling emotions as “good” or “bad.” Caregivers who engage children in reading and storytelling promote brain development and imagination, develop language and emotions, and strengthen relationships. Learn more about the importance of play, the stages of development and how play works before language and memory are developed and examples of activities that encourage imaginative play.
