give her THE LOOK everytime she does it and just watch out for adults around you, youd be suprised how she picked it up.

This is very normal at that age. Try reading some books together and talk about the difference between real and make-believe. Sometimes little kids have trouble distinguishing between their imaginations and what they wish were true and reality, and of course, they don't want to get in trouble if they do something wrong! Assure her that it is more important to you that you tell her the truth than it is that she misbehave. It is likely a phase that will pass.
