7. Jungle Play Dough
Imaginative play doesn’t have to be difficult. My twins were 7 when they collected everything needed to make a jungle play dough set for their brother’s fourth birthday

Thanks so much for Kate for sharing the 7 days of Imaginative play for us. As a parent it’s one of the parts of play that I found hardest when J and T were toddlers now that I can understand their imagination a little better as their language has improved it as become easier.
