What is better than throwing a pretend tea party when you are three?
Role playing is such a crucial part of a childs learning and development that it should always be encouraged. This afternoon Mr Bee cracked lots of eggs to make an 'eggy stew' which he whisked, added oil to his pan, poured milk into the mixture. Lots of skills which he has learnt from watching and helping me in the kitchen has been processed in his little head, to go into his own tea party for his imaginary friends. He even went to the 'shop' to buy cakes and made cups of tea and did the washing up after they had gone home.
