Props for Pretend Play
summaryPlay pretend doctor or waiter with your kids so they can practice their writing skills.
- Reading Is Fundamental
- Ideas for Every Season, Rainy Day Fun
Give your child a marker and paper. Your little doctor can scribble a prescription and the little waiter can take orders. Opportunities for playtime writing are endless: restaurant menus, store signs and price tags, tickets for a show or a train ride. Some children may ask for help in writing real words; others are satisfied with their own marks or drawings.
