Lets pretend - cooking set
Use this 21 piece pretend play cooking set to encourage pretend and imaginitive play as well as langauge and shared play with others.
TIP: Get down to the child's level and model cooking scenes with them. Once the child is copying some basic pretend play (e.g. stiring a cooking pot) develop this play by adding an extra element to the play sequence (e.g. dishing out the food onto a plate)
TIP: Support language development by modelling short sentences as you play. As a golden rule aim to use about the same number of words per sentence as the child and then add one more word to help teh child move on with their langauge tot he next level. e.g. if the child says 'car' you say ' yes car's driving!'.
