Imaginative play is so important for a child’s development. As a primary school teacher I would always be able to identify those children who were exposed and encouraged to play creatively and use their imaginations in ways that allowed them to go further than what was simply presented to them.
DIY Woolly Monsters for Imaginative Play
- Wool (6ply or 4ply – preferably colour changing)
- cookie cutter or a fork
- googly eyes
- sticky tape or hot glue gun
I preferred to have a light tension on the wool as I wrapped it.
I loved watching the colours change as I continually wrapped the wool around the cookie frame.
This is similar to how you’d make a pompom.
Would your child like to make and play with these?
