The children have been showing an interest in making pizza. A small group of children engaged in dramatic play by imitating the jobs within a pizzeria. The educators provided some additional materials to the house area to enhance this play. They added two wooden serving boards, aprons, oven mitts etc. Connor had discovered them first and he instantly began making pizzas on them and telling us that they are used to put the pizza in the oven and take it out. Connor served each person within the house center a pizza he had made and he explained each step as he made this pizza, “there is crust, sauce, cheese, pepperoni and then you bake it”. The children began labeling the area as a "restaurant" and provided insights into additional materials to incorporate in this play.
