Playing is an important part of developing confidence. When playing, children learn to take risks, make decisions, and interact with others. Through play, children can practice their problem-solving skills and build resilience. Encouraging children to take on roles and explore their imagination can also be beneficial in developing confidence.
Imaginative play is a type of play that involves pretending or creating alternative worlds. It incorporates elements of creativity and imagination and encourages children to explore and experiment with different scenarios. Imaginative play can take many forms, such as role-playing, make-believe, and storytelling.
