1. Boost early brain development
During the first few years of life, children’s brains are developing at an incredibly fast rate. This is because their synapses are constantly firing to create neural pathways.

2. Improve early cognitive development
Cognitive development refers to a child’s ability to understand abstract concepts and think critically. Like brain development, this is often done through exploration and experience with the world. Many cognitive skills are exercised through play, from basic math as children count the toy eggs in a carton to literacy when they write the day’s specials on a deli board.


3. Enhance children’s social-emotional development
Social-emotional learning is just as important as academic learning. Most children first learn how to interact with others through play, and dramatic-play scenarios provide them with a way to practice how they should treat other people. While dolls and toy animals can reflect how children interact with their peers in daycare, dress up play can add an additional social challenge as children imagine how to act in the adult world.


4. Promote children’s language and literacy development
Play provides plenty of opportunities for children to use their literacy skills. A “waitress” might write down her “customers’” orders, while a “teacher” grades the tests of his “students.” What the children write in these situations is irrelevant; the important part is that they are coming to understand the relationship between written words and the real world. In play, even the most indecipherable scribble means something. Pretend play can also broaden a child’s vocabulary. 


5. Strengthen children’s physical development
Dress up provides a ton of opportunities for motor-skill practice! In addition to encouraging active play—from the fine movement of gripping a spatula to the broader task of kicking a soccer ball—the very nature of costumes requires that children use their motor skills to put them on. Little learners exercise their fine motor muscles as they attempt to button, zip, or tie on their new clothes, while larger muscles are used to locate arm-holes and shimmy into shirts. Though simple tasks, these small moments of play prep add up to refine children’s movements and give them better control over their bodies.
