Thematic Play offers life experiences
Adults are sometimes surprised that the same pirate ship can entice children to enthusiastically play day after day. Assuming themes and imagining roles benefit children in a way that is not directly visible to adults. Thematic playgrounds provide children with mental activity essential for the development of their identity.
As different themes invite children to play different roles, they have the opportunity to practice experiencing and expressing feelings. Role and theme play, by involving several participants, also trains their communication and social skills. In other words, the benefits of theme play can carry on beyond into working life.
