The dramatic play area is often best situated near the block area. This allows for the two areas to be integrated together, which children often spontaneously do in their play. Plus both areas are usually louder and more active play areas.
The equipment used in this area with change depending on what kind of theme you have going. Often times a child sized kitchen set is located here for children to play "house." Other accessories can be added or incorporated to change the "theme" of the dramatic play area.
Play dishes, food items, and dress up clothes are a must have in this area. Also there should be multicultural dolls, and doll accessories for the children to use. Other supplies will depend on the play scenarios being carried out.
