Play House: Dramatic play is an essential part of early childhood. Watching children play at being a family reveals what they see, hear, and feel in their day to day life. Playing house is one of the most popular themes for young children. Possible props can be dolls, keys, stuffed animals as pets, and other household items. Take the lead from your child as you both take on roles of different family members in various situations.
Feeling crafty after all that play time? Why not paint a family tree where each person creates leaves with their hand prints?
Or create a family cookbook filled with favorite dishes. Ask your child to help you decide what recipes to add. If your child is able, make illustrations to make visual recipes. After making your book, choose a recipe to cook together.
