Dramatic Play, Thanksgiving dinner

Dramatic play can be defined as a type of play where children accept and assign roles, and then act them out. It is a time when they break through the walls of reality, pretend to be someone or something different from themselves, and dramatize situations and actions to go along with the roles they have chosen to play.

In this dramatic play my kids are both being cooks and servers, serving their own thanksgiving meal to their own family. It was neat to see what they each made. My son leaned more towards making things and arranging them by shapes and colors so he made some burgers that went to one side of the table and then corn that went to another side, while my daughter just made sure to have a main course and then some sides.
You could also make this a learning activity by asking about colors, sizes, and textures.  

What do you think your kid/kids would add to their own Thanksgiving meal?

Trash bin for bigger balls or large shoe rack works too Clothes hamper for pool toys & Mesh bag for sand toys Before we really even got some what organized we use to use crates but I found that with many kids going threw creates to find certain toys it quickly got messy so I really like the idea of having bins for certain toys. I also like that the bins are smaller then the crates we were using so that the smalle…
