Supersized Kitchen Playsets

Promoting inclusion in the classroom

When you're considering special needs toys, kitchen playsets are a good choice because they make inclusion in the classroom or daycare easy.

Creating a kitchen 'corner' can help create a play environment that allows for mimicking, which encourages communication.

Providing opportunities for communication that also has manipulatives is also something desirable for autism toys - a growing need in many classrooms and daycares.

The kitchen setting also provides an opportunity to promote ideas around healthy eating habits and social skills at mealtime - a important set of lessons particularly with kids that have Aspergers Syndrome.

The colorful set makes it appealing to youngsters and with over 70 pieces in the kitchen playset, many kids can simultaneously play with the included pots, dishes, bowls, cookie cutters, pitcher and durable vinyl food portions.

What I also liked about this particular type of kitchen toys is that the items are large and well designed. For kids with physical disabilities, this is an important thing to consider when choosing manipulatives, so that they can also make useful occupational therapy toys.

The toys are made of durable plastic, making it easy to clean with mild soap and water.

For children that are older, having larger size "food" and tools also helps. These are my favorite super-sized kitchen items for use in a special needs classroom or if you're homeschooling.

Another thing you may want to consider is school age sized kitchen furniture sets as well. Here are a couple of ideas for you:
