Grilling with preschoolers:pretend play

Grilling with preschoolers:pretend play

We had a little fun barbecue play today with our very own grill and accessories…

There are several skills explored and concepts learned as we played today…

Wy and I learned how to fold up our own table cloth…

Tristan already knew how to fold his picnic blanket so he demonstrated this for us…

We were reminded that when a grill is hot, we should never touch it with our fingers…

Then we tried grilling up some of our own special recipes…

And we discovered that it is hard to pick up toys when we have those large hot pad mitts on our hands…

Thank you to Ms. Lauren for taking our photos today!

    This is a great pretend play prop box. We have several boxes that I rotate in our playroom. I think I’m going to put something like this together for summer. Thanks for the idea!
