Ice Cream Shop

We are working on creating a new dramatic arts center with the children. As always, they were invited to share ideas for what they wanted to set the center up as, and then a class vote was held. They had some amazing ideas including a super hero headquarters, pet shop, sports shop, ice cream shop, and toy store. The majority of the children voted to create an ice cream shop.

After we determined the center, the children helped me to write a list of some of the materials we might need for the center.  I began the list and then delegated the activity to some children who volunteered to continue with the writing.

We used paints to create a sign for the center. The children decided to officially name the shop as the "Ice Cream Shop".

We figured out how to use paper to make ice cream and cones. We'll use these materials to start and switch to play dough ice cream and real cones once the center is established.

If you have any items that you might be willing to lend or donate to our classroom for this center, we'd be most appreciative. We are looking for ice cream scoops, empty ice cream containers, and aprons. Our families have proven to have excellent imaginations and if you think of anything else we could use, please send it in! Please ensure you clearly label any materials that you'd like returned home.  Thank you so much for your continued interest in and support for our program. We couldn't do it without you!
