The weather is super snowy and cold in my part of the world right now, and this Snowflake Café dramatic play center fits right in. The center incorporates many loose parts, which little learners love to use in imaginative ways.

The Snowflake Cafe
The color scheme for the winter-themed Snowflake Café dramatic play center is blue, white, silver, and gold.
Snowflakes in various sizes and materials make up a large part of the play food. In checking my supplies and scouring stores in our area I found them in felt, foam, acrylic, and wood.
The wooden snowflakes are painted with gold, silver, or shades of blue acrylic craft paint to match the color scheme.
Including play spaghetti in my dramatic play centers is so fun. In the café iridescent necklaces cut into strips are the noodles, and small snowflake-themed bells are the meatballs.
Styrofoam balls are snow cupcakes or muffins.
Disposable frosted goblets and silver trays add elegance to the center.
Little learners love to mix and match supplies in the snowflake café and use their imagination to decide what play food the loose parts will be. They relish in preparing food, serving it to customers, and handling play money.
