Build a castle or a fort
Do you have a spare cardboard box? You might be able to get one from a supermarket or a local grocers shop, if not!
A cardboard box can easily be made into so many things – a Castle? Or a House? a Space-ship? or a Boat? Or a Bus? A Cave for a bat Or a Kennel for an imaginary Dog!
You can draw or paint on the outside however you want to and cut out some windows and doors!
You can use anything to be the people or animal’s who live inside it! Clothes pegs? Spoons? OR Teddy’s? Dolls? Toy animals?
You can cut out the front to make a TV and then you can put it on your head and read the news!
If you’re lucky enough to find a giant box you can Get inside it and go to the moon or paddle down the amazon!
Remember – with imaginary play you can be anyone, go anywhere, and do anything! And you can make things into anything else you want:
A scarf can be a cat or a snake!
A sandwich can be a chocolate gateaux!
A rug can be magic carpet to fly you to see the Pyramids!
