Reggio Inspired Dramatic Play Centers

A couple of weeks ago I gathered photos of some incredible Reggio-inspired Math and Writing centers to share with you. These have been some of the most popular posts that I’ve done, so I thought I would do a few more centers this week. I shared some incredible science centers, today I want to show you some inspiring dramatic play centers.

My students favorite materials to use in the dramatic play space are;

  • Any kind of costume
  • Authentic items related to the play topic (old cameras, real stethoscopes, old cell phones, hair dryers, bakery boxes, etc.)
  •  Related printables, such as pretend library cards, shopping lists, airline tickets, recipe cards, etc. 
There are a few other things that I like to include to help “set the stage” so to speak:
  • Signage, usually something that students have helped make.
  • Mirrors (so that the children can see what they look like in costume).
  • Books related to the play topic, along with any photos of related locations.
here are some photos of Reggio-inspired dramatic play centers that any preschooler would love to explore. 
These ideas all make me want to change up my dramatic play space!
