Tiny Tent

Pre-Schooler Bedtime

Grab a blanket to make a tiny tent at bedtime. Pretend to be camping outside with your child. Say: “Shh … what do you hear? See? Smell? What do you think is happening outside our tent?”

See what your child is learning

Pretending is very important to learning—it helps your child to imagine, be creative, and take the perspective of others. And it’s fun!
