Benefits of Pretend Play

Why should you encourage pretend play for your preschool and kindergarten students? Because it is brain-building!

Pretend play is beneficial for your student because it promotes:

  • fine motor skills
  • gross motor skills
  • social development
  • language and communication skills
  • problem-solving abilities
  • teamwork and cooperative play

You can use the signs provided in the space station printables to turn a corner of your classroom into a space station.

  • Welcome Sign
  • Research Lab Sign
