Role-play kitchen – enhancing play (week 1)

1

The role-play kitchen is very popular round here at the moment, so I’ve been adding resources each week to enhance the children’s play.┬á Week one, I’ve added dried pasta and peas to create opportunities for cooking!

The children have enjoyed selecting, scooping and combining the pasta and peas.

We started the week with this shallow cake tin but found it a bit tricky getting the peas to stay inside!

 So I swapped it for a deeper muffin tin, the children found it much easier to combine the resources in this.
Eeek and I even sorted the pasta and peas back into their seperate dishes several times, so the children could play again!

The pasta and peas (or maybe the interest of the older children) attracted the attention of even the little ones.

 Those pesky peas proved to be a little more tricky to pick up!
