Early Years Resources stocks a great selection of children’s role-play dress-up resources for children in early years and primary education. Our range of dress-up and role-play resources are ideal for use alongside the EYFS and KS1 curriculum.
One of the most important aspects of imaginative play is pretending to be somebody else. Young children love to experiment with the everyday roles of the people they encounter and dressing up is an excellent way to facilitate this. Dressing up makes this process easier for children, and fully immerses them in their chosen character.
As children dress up and role-play with their friends they build essential communication skills as they speak out loud what their character would say, giving them the chance to expand their vocabulary and experiment with words they have heard before. Additionally, role play helps improve their emotional development, as children can process feelings through play, empathise and understand one another and make sense of the world as a whole.
When children are given dress-up resources it allows their imaginations to freely roam. There is no limit to who, where or what they can be.
