Imaginative Play

Imaginative play comes from a child’s experiences in the world.  Visiting places where you can see animals in the wild will lead to more imaginative play about animals.  It will also bring more stories to life, since so many stories for young children involve animals

   Walking through the conservation land in Chelmsford is a wonderful way to see animals and plants. Thanksgiving Forest is bordered by River Meadow Brook and Great Brook Farm State Park.

Bunnies may not be welcomed at the Community Gardens, but you can certainly see lots of plants. The library created a StoryWalk around the gardens to provide yet another outdoor activity in town for young children.  I wonder what the StoryWalk would look like if you pretended you were a bunny family?…
