cooking role play
Role play has always been something I have known is great for language development and making sense of the world as well as developing collaborative skills and just being great fun for the child - but I hate it! I feel too self-conscious. However, it is something I am trying to do more of. We do a lot of cooking, which all the girls love (especially when it is cakes and biscuits) - but I feel if we cook all the time I might end up the size of whale! so I decided this was one bit of role play it would be easy to do.
I bought P some lovely Lego cupcake bits which are fab - even I enjoys playing with them as well as some real kitchen equipment. They seem to come out most night after school - so I guess they are a hit. Even I have been getting into it - fantasy baking is great for the waist line!
