The Child in the World of Imagination

At the time of their birth, a child becomes attracted and interested in the blurry colors and images that they first see and, later on, progresses to facial expressions and body language as they grow older. Whatever they visually perceive is what they would translate into as the meaning of the words and sentences that they would, later on, read and write. As they start to go into their schooling years, educators would often encourage their students to apply the words that they have learned through actions or in their daily activities to incorporate the meaning of the word. And one of the activities would be imaginative play.

Imaginative play, also known as make-believe, fantasy play, or pretend play, is a creative activity that allows a child to utilize their imagination to create imaginary scenarios as a way to interpret what they have witnessed or seen, experienced, or would, later on, like to experience.
