This week we created a Coffee Shop Dramatic Play area in our play room. C loves different types of dramatic play and it is a great way to teach vocabulary, social skills, pre-writing skills, counting, pre-reading skills, etc. I had do a coffee shop in my classroom when I taught, but just had hand made signs and such. For C, I made them all printable so it would be easy to create and keep for the future.
C loves to make tea with her teapots and always tells us that she drinks tea instead of coffee because she is little. I knew that she would love this dramatic play set because there was a real coffee pot as well as real coffee cups. I held onto some jugs of milk and sugar boxes we had from our grocery store dramatic play area (check it out here) and added those as well.
She loves it!! We have drank so much coffee together it is crazy!! One day she brought her coffee upstairs and sat in her chair and told us she was gonna drink her coffee while she watches the news.
This dramatic play packet will also be great for the little ones. D loves to make coffee as well. So we let him pour pretend coffee all day. He loves to blow it off because we remind him all the time that coffee is hot!
Please enjoy this dramatic play area with your child.
