Childhood is a magical time, where sofas become dens, a blanket turns into an invisibility cloak or a towel turns into a cape, enabling the wearer to soar into the sky.
What might seem just like simple fun is actually vital development and important work. By using the imagination within play, children are developing crucial psychological and emotional skills to enable them to both understand and shape the world around them.
They learn to solve problems, create new possibilities and change their world.
