While at a therapy appointment for my son a couple weeks ago, the therapist brought out a huge pirate ship to teach my son imaginative play.
He loved it so much, he spent the next hour removing the flags, hiding the men in the cellar and having them walk the plank. It was a great way for us to teach him role playing, inspire imagination and to promote his physical and intellectual development.
That is when I realized that a pirate ship would be a great toy for any child – even those who don’t need therapy.
