Discover the Magic of Imaginative Playtime Narratives

Children''s imagination is a wonderful thing, and when encouraged, it holds the power to create amazing worlds to be explored through play. During this session, we will discuss what it takes to present kids of different ages with content and inspiration to create story experiences in which they become the stars. Heroes or villains, humans or not, living their own storylines will help children learn and grow.
