A play kitchen is a must-have center in an early learning classroom and is a favorite place for little learners to play. Adding seasonal items to a play kitchen keeps it interesting and inviting. In March, a St. Patrick’s Day pretend play center is a perfect fit.
Follow me on Pinterest for more early learning ideas.
For this center, I gathered mostly green items, with a few yellow and gold items added in. Included are:
- St. Patrick’s Day disposable plates
- play food
- stir sticks
- reusable shamrock ice cubes
- clear glasses
- baskets, serving bowls, and ice cube tray
- felt “pretzel” shamrocks
- sheet pan with felt shamrock “cookies”
- wooden shamrock “candies”
- shamrock-shaped serving tray with buns
- ping pong ball “buns” in a muffin tin
- St. Patrick’s Day erasers
- jar with coins, beads, and garland strips
- large gem pebbles
- leprechaun and bear table decorations
- artificial flowers in a vase
The St. Patrick’s Day Pretend Play Center
In this post, most of the supplies are set on a play kitchen table. These supplies can also be arranged in the appliances and on the shelves.
There are a variety of green and St. Patrick’s Day-themed loose parts in the table display. Little learners will use their imagination to incorporate the loose parts in their own ways.
The themed supplies are set on a gold tablecloth. In an earlier post, I showcased similar supplies on an orange tablecloth. I also featured them on a green table-a natural fit!
Many of the play kitchen accessories seen here are useful in other centers as well. They can be used on a light table, in a water table, or on a rice sensory tray.
