Turn your Dramatic Play space into the Arctic this week. Add White Felt, Winter Clothes, and Create an Igloo (or buy this pre-made one) for your space. Other fun ideas include Ice Fishing. and Creating an Indoor Skating Area.
Our friend Theresa Y. did such a fantastic job creating this igloo in her dramatic play space. I love how she built it in a corner, saving space (and reducing the amount of jugs she needed to use. Be sure to reach out to your families to let them know to start saving empty jugs for your project!
This week you can add White Felt (to represent snow), Pretend Arctic Animals, Foam Cubes, and small clear plastic containers (to represent Icebergs). You can spray paint small cube blocks for the children to create Igloos with, cover them with white paper or purchase Rainbow Mags.
Pair a favorite Arctic book with these FREE Arctic Number Puzzles from PKPF. Into the Arctic by Roger Priddy is a wonderful book to share with preschoolers during this theme. The unique see-through pages capture children's interest as they follow along discovering new arctic animals and finding old favorites through the book.
