Props for Dramatic Play

Dramatic play is an important part of preschool as it helps develop children's social and emotional skills, language and thinking skills, and nurtures the imagination!  I have a minor in theatre and I currently teach summer theatre camps at Utah Children's Theatre.  I have found great success using drama in the classroom!  I'm excited to use the props I've collected, including over 20 puppets, more than 30 plush animal (with several adorable sets of mother/baby animals), lots of costumes including masks, hats, and more!  Dramatic play is valuable in and of itself but at Discovery Adventures Preschool, we step it up a notch by incorporating the academic topics and skills we've been studying.  Plus, using our imagination is just plain fun!  (You can find links to great dramatic play printables on our Pinterest account.)
