Teaching Toddler Thursday- Pretend Play

Welcome back to Teaching Toddler Thursday!  This past week we did pretend play.  We had a lot of fun pretending to be different things.  

We first had a pretend picnic with the stuffed animals. The kids enjoyed feeding them puff balls with a spoon and Z delivered the food in a dump truck.  

They pretended to play doctor to the animals, but I couldn't get any decent pictures of them!  But they had a great time playing with the doctor kit and taking care of the stuffed animals.  

We had super hero day!  They all had capes and masks from baby C's brother's birthday party over the summer and loved running around and jumping on the bean bag chairs.  They rescued the stuffed animals from the top of a building and even dressed them up as superheroes.

They enjoyed being chefs for a day and Chef Z cooked up all sorts of goodies while K worked the cash register and baby C went shopping for groceries.  

Pretend play is a great way to get their imaginations going and have a great time doing something different.  It is also a great thing to do on a rainy day.

I look forward to your comments, they make my day!
