As my toddler grows,so will his play. He has taken great interest in dramatic play,as of late. The most noticeable changes have been with the complexity and duration of his play.
Last night, all he wanted to do was play restaurant.
During the day, I caught him taking something out of MY refrigerator to make room for HIS Pretend food…because it was Pretend hot.
This is his interest,I am going to use it for learning.
How can I expand this play?
Since we are snowed in, and he has a cough...might as well bring some snow in.
We can throw in his play dishes that he always uses...a shovel...and perhaps some dishes from the kitchen.
Instead of using play food...
We can serve up snow.
We will talk about how cold it is, so we might want to wear our mittens.
We may even bring a few friends along.
MMMMMmmmm...Best Snow Shop in Town. :)
