Mechanic Dramatic Play

Your little learners will LOVE playing in their Mechanic dramatic play space!

Dramatic Play is a great way to develop oral language skills, cooperation, content vocabulary and social skills in your early childhood classroom!

Use this packet to set up a Mechanic or Auto Shop in your dramatic play space. It doesn’t need to cost a lot of money, in fact you probably have a lot of resources already around the classroom or home that you can use! You might even like to ask your students to help collect objects they can use!

Your little learners will develop fine motor skills as they play in the Mechanic. They can use small pegs and clips to attach cords and tubing to their cars. They’ll also love creating their own box cars using cardboard boxes and recycled materials like paper plates and patty pans.

As your little learners explore the Mechanic, they’ll also develop early reading and writing skills. They will begin to recognise familiar words and extend their vocabulary as they become familiar with the labels. The customer forms and mechanic reports are a wonderful way to encourage pre-writing.

Play-based learning is full of opportunities to learn and explore!

Inside, you’ll find a list of suggested materials and set up ideas so all you need to do is print and go – the hard work has been done for you!

Our decision to offer digital downloads aligns with our commitment to providing you with immediate access to our creative resources! By choosing digital, you can start enjoying our products instantly without the wait for shipping. Plus, it’s a more eco-friendly option, reducing paper and packaging waste. It also allows us to keep costs low and offer affordable pricing. We hope you enjoy the convenience and flexibility our digital downloads offer!

Do I need any special equipment or supplies to use this resource?

Our printables are designed to be user-friendly and require basic supplies you likely already have at home, such as crayons, scissors and glue.

A printer is very much a requirement though and a laminator is a handy bonus but not a neccessity. We love using Write and Wipe Sleeves from Amazon US* or Amazon Australia*
