5. Puppet play
We love puppets in our house! They can inspire so much creative and imaginative play. Over the years we’ve made a few sets of free printable puppets from frogs and ducks to leaves and monsters!

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.
