Thanksgiving Tablescape Pretend Play
Arrange supplies for this tablescape in a play kitchen on a shelf, or place them in the play stove, fridge, and cupboards. Your little learners will enjoy incorporating them into festive play.
Loose parts are always a highlight of pretend play setups. Green, yellow, orange, and red-themed felt balls and round wooden beads easily transfer from a fall play tablescape to this Thanksgiving one.
The turkey centerpieces were a delightful find at a party store and add color and style.
Pilgrim-themed stickers make great “cookies” when placed on a baking pan.
Turkey game pieces and wooden beads help make the play set up super special.
Themed cookie cutters are easy-to-find items that add flair.
Disposable plates befitting the Thanksgiving theme are included in the décor, as are artificial miniature pumpkins showcased in clear plastic glasses.
A “Be Thankful” tea towel and harvest plaque are the finishing touches to this seasonal dramatic play center.
