Role play may appear to be a very simple activity, yet through it, young children learn practical life skills such as interacting, co-operating and sharing with others. Role play provides opportunities for children to identify with the adult world. It is their understanding and and interpretation of what they have seen in their real world. It helps develop language skills; listen and talking with other people. It also helps children develop and understanding of what is being communicated through body language such as smiling and nodding.
