Ice Cream Dramatic Play

Ice Cream dramatic play download.

I scream, you scream we all scream for ice cream! 
We almost had as much fun setting this up as the children did playing with it. Excitement filled the room as the children arrived at day care in the morning to see an ice cream shop set up.

They all enjoyed each taking turns serving the ice cream to each other, choosing their favourite flavours and making orders. This download ice cream kit comes with:

  • Signs for the different flavours of ice cream
  • Signs for different toppings 
  • Signs for cones, scoops, bowls
  • Open/closed sign
  • Today’s special faux blackboard sign
  • Price list
  • Menu
  • Order form
  • Play money, and receipt
  • Welcome sign
  • Cone template
  • Colouring in pages, design your own ice cream page

What we did – we found all of the other props at Kmart, such as - plastic bowls, sauce containers, sprinkle containers. We were lucky enough to already have this awesome stand! 

But you could set it up on any sort of table.
We made coloured play dough for the different ice cream flavours and rolled them into little scoops. You could do this as an activity with the children too.

What we would want to know:

Would this be easier for you if we included some of the props in a physical kit that we send out to you? Or are you happy with the download and creating your own spin on the ice cream shop dramatic play?

We would love to hear what you think!
