Cafe Imaginative Play

Term 2 has started and we have a new Cafe theme for our waiting room.



We have a ‘coffee machine’ for kids to make cappuccinos and espressos!  There are also free cupcakes.

Kids love preparing the ‘takeaway’ coffees or cups of tea.  Developing pretend play skills is often an integral part of any speech therapy programme so we like to give families ideas for themes at home.  Use your own plastic cups, empty tea/coffee packets, trays and real/pretend cakes and you are set.

Lots of vocabulary to learn – cups, spoon, muffin, stir, hot, all gone, more, yum, mum’s coffee ….


Our talented therapist Anne, has sewn these tea bags.


We have collected some recyclables to make it more fun.


and downloaded a menu.


Why not re-enact a cafe at home, after a visit on the weekend?  Take home those play props and perhaps use an apron for the barista dressup!
