Children from the ages of 3- to 5-years-old can be classified as explorers. During this timeframe both boys and girls learn to use their imaginations and they know how to make a mess. And that’s all the more reason to create safe and fun play areas for your child in a quiet area of the house...like their bedroom! We recommend four items for your preschooler’s room that will encourage exploration and imaginative play, but will also help to reduce the mess throughout the house. 1. Is it a rug or a plane? Rugs provide warm and soft landings for little feet, knees, and bottoms. Rugs also create a special place in a room for make-believe activities.
- Say that the rug is a ship or a car or a plane.
- There’s lava outside of the rug!
- On the rug is considered inside. Off the rug is considered outside.
