Senior School Age Program

december 2017

We are very thankful to Carmine’s grandma for the donation of make up to the “ Llama Salon.” I set up an invitation to play by adding the make up palates, sponges, spray bottle and cloths in the dramatic play area positioned near the doll heads. The children appeared excited and surprised. I observed the sparkle in their eyes as they experimented on the dolls faces and their conversations reflected their interest. “I am going to use the blue eye shadow over her eyes” says one child to another as they converse on how to place the make up on the dolls. Dramatic play has been a strong interest for the school age children. Whether its acting out commercials they scripted themselves or fashion shows with the dress up clothes. The language of dramatic arts is apparent in this program.
