Today we did some dramatic play by picking apples and placing them in our wagon. Jacob did this last year all on his own after experiencing the apple orchard. This year we went to the apple orchard as well. He is really into farmers so to start this activity I told him he was going to be a farmer and pick the apples. That was all it took!
I just sat back and watched as he went to work! He was very focused on cooking and using all kinds of 'tools' to help him! This was not intended but such a great example of dramatic play! He used his imagination and really got the job done! When he was finished he brought me an apple pie, but warned me that it was hot! What a fun day!
