Our waiting room always has a Role-Play theme. Not only does it make waiting fun, but it can kickstart some ideas for playtime at home.
Today we have another food theme – takeaway or delivery food.
You can order from the Menu – sushi, salad, hamburger, chips or pizza.
Do you want takeaway or delivery?
Use the play phone to order your food and pay with some play money / card.
The food can be put in a brown bag for delivery.
The delivery guy can dress up as a chef or with a delivery bag.
These are all good role play ideas for developing imaginative play at home. Depending on your child’s age, there are many vocabulary items you can practice – phone, menu, more cheese etc!

What about the toys? You can either recycle your pizza boxes, containers etc.
Or KMart has the sushi set and hamburger/chips set as pictured. The salad is a felt play set from IKEA.
