Dramatic Play in ‘The Office’


I sometimes set up a dramatic play area that lends itself to language and plain old cuteness! We call it ‘The Office’ and it consists of a couple of push button phones, keyboards, small clipboards painted in kid friendly colors, and a pencil holder with a variety of colored pencils (not shown). The phones and keyboards were from the Salvation Army.  I like to put 2 of these set-ups next to each other at a table and then watch how the kids use it. Sometimes just one child will sit down and pretend to type, talk on the phone, scribble, or write their name on the clipboard paper. Sometimes another child will join him/her and they will proceed to have a hilarious verbal exchange on the phone. It’s a cheap and fun way to set up a pre-writing dramatic play area.
