A Pony Pool Party! What fun! We filled up the kiddie pool, gathered all the play ponies from my daughter's room, and brought them outside for a pool party. One by one lining them up on the side, they took turns "jumping" into the pool. We played for a while, pretending to make the ponies swim and play in the water. Enjoying the beautiful day in the NEK.

We brushed their hair and laid them out in the sun to dry. Coming back to "style" their hair later in the day, before cleaning up. We had so much fun doing this! Play like this, really encourages kids to use their imagination. For some, imaginative play can be very difficult, but it is crucial for a child's development. I'd like to share a link about the importance of pretend play that can explain things a bit better than I can.
