Everything you need for a real snack or pretend play!
Four oversized plates, cups, forks, spoons, and knives are the perfect size for small hands to successfully hold and use. They resemble real objects that kids are familiar with, which helps encourage imaginative play. When kids pretend, they build imaginary worlds and real-life skills. Listening, conversational turn taking, and expressive language flow as children talk over tea, pass plates of cookies, and request another serving. When you listen to others, you gain insight into their world and begin to develop empathy. Motor planning and movement are used to learn how to pick up and pretend to drink from a cup or grasp a spoon to stir your tea. As children play, they are strengthening necessary small muscles in their hands to become independent with daily living skills—the skills needed to hold a toothbrush, button a shirt, or tie shoes.
Use this set to help teach children how to set a table. Then, come dinnertime, have children use their newly-acquired skills to help prepare for the real meal. You’ll be amazed at how playing with pretend dishes can translate to real skills, and you’ll see memory and recall skills in action. For ages 2+.
This set includes 4 plates, 4 bowls, 4 cups, 4 knives, 4 forks, and 4 spoons. Plates measure 7”L x 7”W. Bowls measure 4”D.
Having a place setting for four reinforces counting skills as children count each piece they place on the table, ensuring every setting has one of each item. This also helps students complete a pattern, leading to understanding order.
