Toddlers and young children love to dress up and partake in role play games. It's amazing where their imagination will take them and one of the privileges of being a parent is to watch your child or children playing make-believe! As parents, you should encourage games that stretch the imagination and nurture the creative processes of your children. Children will assume many roles and often will act out how they perceive their influential role models to be, so sometimes you'll catch your kids playing 'Mummy' or 'Daddy', or they will be their teachers or other family members. Encourage play by giving them clothes to dress up in - you needn't buy them a wardrobe of expensive dressing up outfits, they will get as much joy simply out of wearing your old (and current!) clothes!
