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!

Play is an innate desire for children. Play is how children make sense of their world, create new theories and build upon their knowledge. Play is the essential tool we as Educators use to guide children through their development to become independent, creative and higher level thinkers who have the confidence and skills to problem solve, and learn from their mistakes. Children learn through hands on experiences and I am going to discuss how we can create engaging play experiences for children. This is a special project as I am combining Pre-K Printable Fun activities with Loose Parts from my personal collection.
