Pieces of the Plane

E incorporated the plane into the animal family play, using the semi truck to haul it to the mechanic. Pretend play offers a unique platform for everyone to bring their strengths and interests: different roles and plans can be carried out without one specific person necessarily having to lead or organize the play, and it can constantly change to reflect the needs and interests of those involved. In this way, the children are empowered to co-create, imagine, and work together to build plans that work for everyone.
