Phases of the imagination in children

Posted on07/22/2020 5071


The imagination of our children is unlimited, it is so wide that it can lead them to live in a world of fantasy, constant creativity and transformation of thought, this being very useful to promote skills that forge their personality and self-confidence, But did you know that children's imaginations have different phases?

Next, we will tell you what they are:

This phase begins from the first year until 3 years of age, the babies' brains still have no notion of the real and imaginary, they only begin to imitate what revolves around them as expressions or sounds, for example, repeating the barking of a dog, the meowing of a cat etc. These interactions establish neural connections for life, which creates the need to constantly involve them with different sounds such as music, listen to stories, talk to them continuously and play with them, since all these actions will favor the development of children's imagination. .

Symbolic Play:
This begins from 3 years to 6 years of age, in this phase it will be normal to hear our little ones speak with different voices imagining that their dolls have a life of their own, this stage is essential for the development of their creativity and where they begin to form the other phases of the imagination.

Abstract thinking:
This begins from 6 to 10 years of age, where the skills are greater and the creative capacity is more structured and defined, they are able to imagine without having to have contact with a toy or a reference to invent and imagine, During the game it will be normal for them to create fantasy stories where they begin with the representation of each imaginary character.

The imagination in our little ones has multiple benefits, including those that we will mention below:

Communication and language: When imagining it is easier to find new expressions, achieving eloquence in words and improving verbal expression.

Social Skills: Interacting with others helps them create bonds of friendship and social development with their peers.

Problem solving: Imagination allows children to generate solution processes and develop skills to cope with stressful situations, acquiring means and ways to solve any difficulties that arise.

Mink to the future: Being creating stories or situations where they have to act in their script, helps them to have different roles that allow them to have a future perspective on themselves, such as being doctors, engineers, teachers, etc.
