Today we are joining a series by Crafty Kids at Home called A-Z of Pretend Play! We chose the letter I, and played Ice Cream Shop!
My 2.5 year enjoyed the scooping part best:
This activity is great for communication skills too. Placing an “order” requires asking for exactly what you want and the other person needs to listen to get the order right. One could give a few instructions too to work on memory. Colour recognition, hand eye coordination and fine motor skills are both skills developing in a playful manner.
Perfect pretend play activity with plenty of learning opportunity!
