Sweet Treats Bake Shop
Updated: Jan 31
There is no denying that children love to use their imagination especially during pretend play! A fun way to enhance your dramatic play areas is changing it up with a creative theme. Since Valentine’s Day is coming up setting up a Sweet Sweet Treats Bake Shop is a great way to explore in role playing.
Children’s Factory #gifted this Birch Toddler 2-in-1 Kitchen Set is perfect for any dramatic play center. To set up the rest of the bake shop you can provide baking tins, cookware, plates, bowls, and baking tools. You can place pretend treats and sweets. To ignite their imagination even more adding loose parts such as (acrylic ice rocks, rocks, wooden hearts, gems, and flat marbles) is an even more open ended way to enhance the process of their play. After you setup simply invite the child to PLAY!
Dramatic play is a crucial part of early childhood. Since possibilities are truly limitless in pretend play it encourages a child to use their imagination in its truest form by doing. The child will build social and emotional skills, language skills, problem-solving skills, take risks, and become who ever they want to be. If there is one thing we need to encourage children to do more is imagine, and through dramatic play they will! After all play is the work of a child.
