Expert Tip

Use pretend play to prepare for school

At this age, children are still learning all they need through play. A few good pretend play props, like toy food, dolls, and cars - together with a blanket den or big cardboard box - will ignite a pre-schoolers imagination for hours of fun. It's also a great way for them to build vocabulary and learn to make friends, which will help them when they start school.
