Dramatic Play

  • Dylan was busy making cakes. First he made a cake for Rachel, and then he went back in the kitchen to make cakes for his Mom and Dad. He'd run back to the kitchen to see if the cakes were hot enough, or if they had cooled down and were ready for eating.
  • Zara found many ways to use the freezer pops today. She put them in boxes, in cups, in bowls- she did lots of creative cooking!
  • Charlie became a doctor today and checked on Rachel's heart.
