Dramatic play is critical in childhood development. According to Piaget (1962), “-dramatic play contributes strongly to the intellectual development of children.” One of the reasons that preschool is so beneficial is because it allows them to interact with children in their general age group, allowing them to imagine situations that enhances their problem solving skills. One tool that is perfect fordramatic play- kid’s kitchen sets. Play sets like kitchen, work benches, wardrobes, and even castles; allow children to imitate what they see, act out their favorite stories, or act out stories and scenarios of their own creation.

There are many additional benefits of dramatic play, ranging from social and emotional skills, to thinking and creativity. According toElanna S Yalow, Ph.D, dramatic play can provide children with relief from emotional tension, helps them feel powerful, enhances their use of social interaction skills, aids in language development, provides an understanding and better use of symbols, and teaches them how to sort out the difference between reality and fantasy. Children are also able to develop their fine and gross motor skills, allowing them to become more coordinated, fit, and strong, as they use critical thinking to accomplish different tasks.

These are the reasons why dramatic play is so important to the development of children.
