The kids will have a blast with these Pretend Play Restaurant Printables! They can now work on their customer service skills by inviting you right into their own restaurant! Perfect for creative play and a fun way to spend some time engaging with your little one. These fun dramatic play restaurant printables are perfect for all ages and are a great way to use their imagination as well!
I remember when I was little, and I was always creating fun scenes and jobs in my head. One of the creative games that I played over and over again was that I was working at the grocery store! There’s just something so fun about pretending to scan items and help out the customers, and this is what stemmed the idea to make these super fun kids play restaurant printables.
These pretend play restaurant ideas are easy to print, which means that the kids can start creating their own restaurant area in the house (or outside!) right away. This fun and interactive game would also be great for a sleepover or a super cute addition to any playroom as well.
What are fun ways to use these pretend play restaurant printables?
This is where the fun starts! Once everything is printed off, your little one can create their own restaurant as they see fit. You get to be the customer and choose food items from the printable menu and wait for your play food to arrive! The restaurant menu promotes literacy as each item not only has visual representation but is spelled out too.
If you have a cute play kitchen or a table that you can pair up with these dramtic play printables, that just adds to the ambiance and fun.
After the meal is served, your child will create the guest check for you to pay for everything you’ve eaten. Use this kit as a time to work on math while counting out the correct amount of money – and just a great way to open up the lines of communication.
You can even add your own silverware and dishes and lay on top of the provided table setting. If you have a play kitchen with plastic food, incorporate some of those 3-D food and restaurant items too. The great thing about creative and pretend play is that there are opportunities for learning fun throughout the whole time!
More Pretend Play Fun and Activities
Why stop with just one dramatic play idea? Here are some other great dramatic play activities and games that the kids will love as well:
Who are these Pretend Play Restaurant printables for?
They’re for anyone who likes to pretend! These would be super cute to have as a birthday party theme as well – and are great for sleepovers or family nights at home.
Toddler/Preschoolers: Early learners will love being able to find their independence in running their own restaurant. This can help them build confidence and learn how to be a big helper, too! Let the creativity go wild. Use for at home pretend play or laminate and use in a preschool classroom set up for a dramatic play center. Add a Melissa & Doug waiter or waitress costume with apron or chef’s hat.
Older kids: Even though these restaurant printable pretend play items are geared toward younger kids, this is where the older kids can have fun being “served” and ordering! Have them sit at the table and see what type of treats and food that they’ll get from their younger siblings. You never know what hilariousness will ensure!
Adults: Interactive play is the best type of play. Sit down and enjoy this time with your little ones. They’ll love that they have your full attention, and you’ll love seeing them take charge and play! This is also excellent for preschool teachers when setting up a classroom. Adults can use this as play prep before going on an adventure to a real restaurant setting.
Tips for Printing These Free Printable Restaurant Ideas
The biggest tip that I have is to laminate the printables once you print and cut them out. This will keep them from getting torn or ripped, and the kids will be able to use them over and over again.
We also keep the restaurant printables and props in an airtight storage container so that the kids can grab it and have everything that they need when it’s time to play restaurant!
