The Dramatic Play Space provides many opportunities for children to practice "Life Skills". Children learn about every day life in this space. They learn by exploring the items adults use on a daily basis, learn about empathy and nurturing while caring for dolls, and learn about the world around them by pretending to be community helpers, and exploring the roles of these important people during dress-Up play.

Creating space for dramatic play
As with any learning space, you'll want to scope out how much room you have to dedicate to this area in your home. This is an active area, so you may want to place it in an area away from your reading area, or other designated quiet spaces.
Dramatic Play is an important part of the education of young children.
When children are pretending, they are developing essential social-emotional skills! They are also practicing many other important skills such as math, literacy, and physical development.
Many early childhood settings have a basic housekeeping area with a kitchen set, table, dress-up, and baby dolls. These materials are essential to early childhood classrooms and should always be available.
Setting up Dramatic Play invitations is a fun way for kids to delve deeper into a topic or theme, and offers many new ways for them to practice skills.
One basic item that can be used in multiple Dramatic Play invitations, is a simple play stand.
Unfortunately it can be difficult, and pricey, to find a basic dramatic play stand that can be transformed into any theme.
This tutorial will show you how to create a dramatic play stand that can be used to set up many different themes! This project is simple and just takes a bit of time. This tutorial will tell you all you need to know to be successful, including tips from the blunders I made while creating mine!
If I can do it, so can you!
