My favorite part of homeschooling is all of the free time that my children get to just be kids and to play. There is so much learning that can happen with free play time.
I love dramatic play time that can be a structured sort of free time, where it is based on a theme. This is where I will take out a specific theme that they can play with for a set period of time, instead of just opening a toy box and letting them play with everything everywhere. Dramatic play time works very well for preschoolers, and little ones when you need to keep them busy while you are helping the older kids with their school work.
My children have always LOVED playing with baby dolls. We actually have a nice, large suitcase that we use to store all of our babies and their accessories. I found some really fun printables that would be perfect to laminate and use for a structured dramatic baby doll nursery play time theme. Even your older kids will enjoy helping put this theme together!
FREE Baby Doll Nursery Dramatic Play Printables:
Printable Blank Baby Birth Certificates – many designs to choose from, super cute idea for your kids to keep track of their babies.
Printable Baby Doll Record Book – this would be so fun for your kids to fill out or dictate to you to fill out for their favorite baby dolls.
Baby Nursery Dramatic Play from Pre-K Pages – This free set has 43 pages of free printables to setup your own baby nursery play center. I love the nursery sign in sheets and the extra baby care printables. Those would be great for an older sibling to be included in the play time.
Here are some creative ideas for setting up your own baby doll nursery play area:
Baby Doll Pretend Play Area – Confidence Meets Parenting – I like how they used old cabinets and milk crates to set up a portable play area.
