still moving in, though this is clearly the nesting phase….my favorite.
i know we’ll hear this “door” open and close many times.
this family corner will also serve as a play area on sundays. this means that we’ll leave this set up as is (unlike other shelves/tables that we will move against the walls).
i like the term “family corner” more than “dramatic play” or “play kitchen” or “housekeeping.” hopefully i will actually get used to calling it that.
UPDATED: as i look at these photos, i remember what our family corner used to look like (plastic kitchen sets, hand me down soft chairs, a green braided rug from someone’s basement, a shelf with layers of paint…). in early 2002 a fire destroyed our classroom which resulted in all new (and matching!!!) equipment. i am so grateful for these high quality and beautiful props for our play.
