Picnic Area

Our dramatic play area this month, is a Picnic at the Park. I love this activity that one of my coworkers made a while ago. The objects that are on the "tablecloth" can  be pulled off of the velcro and placed in the basket. Even though the basket has fallen off (despite multiple hot-glue and tape fiascos) the children continue to play with this picnic board.

We decided to make our own tree to have a picnic under. The children and I used markers to color cutouts of apples and added those to the tree as well as pictures of the kids coloring them that were added to each side of the tree. A blanket sits under the tree (whenever the children have not dragged the blanket elsewhere) and the food toys are available to create a picnic scene.
