Pretend Play: Restaurant

by Amy on March 17, 2008

May I take your order? Playing restaurant is so much fun! Make your own box of props for restaurant play:

  • tablecloth or piece of fabric
  • aprons for waiters, waitresses, and chefs
  • play dishes, paper plates/cups, etc.
  • napkins
  • play food
  • menus (take-out menus from restaurants or make your own!)
  • plastic vase with fake flowers
  • order tablet or small notepad
  • trays for serving
  • play money & cash register (or make your own out of a box)

Don’t forget to name your restaurant and make a sign too!

Possible characters: customer, waiter/waitress, host, chef or cook, dish washer

Happy Dining!

You’re very welcome! :) We do a lot of pretend play around here — my girls have always been into it.
