Travel-themed dramatic play props

Are you in vacation mode yet?! Me too, and since it isn’t going to happen for real, I figured I’d take a pretend trip (you can download my free travel lesson plan here!).  I fully believe that children need the opportunity to explore authentic materials when engaged in dramatic play, so here is a great big list of travel-themed props that you can add to the classroom for your travel or vacation week.

  1. Suitcases
  2. Duffel bags
  3. Cosmetic or toiletry bags
  4. Empty travel bottles (Shampoo, conditioner, etc.)
  5. Tote bags
  6. Luggage tags
  7. Travel pillows
  8. Boarding passes
  9. Passports
  10. Travel magazines and brochures
  11. Cameras
  12. Binoculars
  13. Postcards
  14. Clothing
  15. Flip flops
  16. Maps
  17. Hotel room keys
  18. Sunglasses
  19. Hats
  20. Itineraries and packing lists
