DRAMATIC PLAY CENTERS: Camp Site

Standard

For the month of June, our dramatic play center is a: CAMP SITE

The camp site theme is one of my favorite to set up. Many of my younger kids have never been camping before, or even in a tent so they really enjoy it and learn a lot. With the camp sight dramatic play center, there are so many things to talk to the kids about such as weather, bugs, plants, animals, food and more!

Great article to read on  “How Dramatic Play Can Enhance Learning”:
