When your child plays with Barbie, do you spot everyday life in the play?
While their imaginations and creativity stretch so far when playing, I do see a lot of our usual routines and way of life peeking through.
It’s play imitating life.
For instance, this was overheard one day while the twins were playing with Barbie:
“No Sophia, Ken cannot drive the car. Ever. Mom always drives”
And it’s true, being the stay-at-home Mom, I‘m always driving! To and from school, shopping, activities, errands.
I didn’t realize this before, but the kids are always in the car with me – while I drive. My husband taking the wheel when we are all together, is a rare occurrence.
If you listen, watch and play Barbies with your kids – I’m sure you’ll discover something that makes a bigger impact on their life than you would think.
Whether it be crazy out-of-this-world scenarios or maybe just play imitating life - What do you hear and feel when you play with Barbie?
