‘Dip into Drama’ is a resource subscription service for childminders, teachers, and parents. Subscribe today, choose from a huge range of games and lead children in imaginative play – anytime, anywhere!
Our 'adventures' (or drama games) gently develop children’s life skills, helping them to:
- Make new friends
- Manage conflict in relationships
- Communicate their ideas, thoughts, and feelings
- Manage their emotions
- Understand others’ emotions
- Concentrate in nursery or school
- Solve simple problems for themselves
- Make decisions with confidence
- Believe in themselves and know what makes them special
Adventures are often also highly physical and target the development of children's physical skills!
