Benefits of realistic pretend play
What is “pretend play”?
“Pretend play” is a play where you pretend to be someone other than yourself, such as playing doctor, shopkeeper, and hero.
Observe the adults around you, and reproduce and express memories such as scenes that left a strong impression on the child and scenes from everyday life.
There are also children who build their world view by incorporating unique and free settings, rather than just reproducing them.
And it is a play that builds a small world and society by involving multiple friends instead of one.
And with age, the play becomes very real and develops into pretend play with friends.
Did you find a job experience spot you want to go to?
Work experience theme parks such as “Kidzania” and “Kandu” are extremely popular spots, so it’s often difficult to get a reservation.
Please try to make wonderful memories through various work experiences.
