Symbolic Play

In this lesson, we will explore symbolic play. We will learn that toys can be symbols for other things e.g. a lego brick could be a phone, or a doll or teddy can be a person. We will relate objects to these symbols so they can act out everyday events e.g. feeding teddy. This lesson provides activities and strategies to support the development of symbolic play.
