Add to list Go to activity
This is an activity in which learners create magic wands from a variety of materials making their choices by considering what kind of magic they want to make. Responding to questions about what they used, what about the wands make them magic and how they feel when holding the wands help them reflect on their own ideas and process. During dramatic play, children are able to act out situations as they wish and enjoy the process without worrying about the final outcome. This freedom builds creativity, encourages self-confidence and develops problem-solving skills as well as communication.
