EYFS: How Can We Build Worlds?

Most very young children find it easy to use their imagination to help invent a world around them.

Through art we can encourage children to nurture their imaginations, building confidence in their instinct, intuition, sense of self and ability to give an outward form to inner ideas. 

The resources in this section help nurture and celebrate imagination.
