Go ahead. Place an order. I dare you. Yes, that's "booger," not "burger," and it's no mistake. The Stars brainstormed the types of food they thought creatures might like to order from a restaurant. After deciding on the following categories, Soups, Sandwiches, Drinks and Desserts, it was easy and fun to think up gross menu items:
The grosser, the better! I typed up the menu, printed, and laminated two copies for center use:
"Fingernail and Snot Sandwich...." YUM!
Some cobwebs, bats, and Halloween colored paper lanterns give the center enough ~ambiance~ to make it feel like a big change to students. Laminated menus, holiday cups, tableware and even "order forms" help each Super Star get into character. The order forms are also a great way to incorporate writing, literacy and math concepts.
How do you ~change up~ your dramatic play area?
