Encouraging your children’s creative and imaginative play is important to strengthening children’s development. Building these skills helps build the foundation for creative problem solving, critical thinking, decision making, and empathy building. Using the Turn the Page Imagination Game, children can foster their creative skills while also providing them the opportunity to work collaboratively with one another, make decisions as a team, share ideas, and support one another. This is a great game for a family with children and adults alike or for multiple children to play at a birthday party or sleepover. It also allows children to explore different artistic talents, such as dance and movement and will help them rediscover their favorite books, fairy tales, and poems. Learn how to play this game and be sure to join in on the fun!
