The Army dramatic play

Children just love adventure and helping others. When children dress up in one of our authentic Irish Army costumes they transform into the persona of a soldier, maybe someone they know or have met out in the community or maybe a relative or family friend. They take on the mannerisms, posture, and language of a member of the army and take their duties very seriously.
Whether they are working at a camp or our and about in the community this free printable resource will make their dramatic play time all the more engaging. Whatever scenario your little soldier wants to play out this free resource will support their learning with vocabulary cards, room signs, and lots of writing opportunities. You can quickly create a print-rich environment with lots of contextual language learning potential.

Dramatic play in the early years
Dramatic play is an important part of early childhood development. It helps children learn about themselves, their community, and how things work. Dramatic play also supports the development of communication and social skills, problem-solving, and critical thinking.
This Army dramatic play pack is aligned with the Aistear framework. It includes lots of posters and signs for creating a print-rich learning environment whilst introducing theme-specific vocabulary, strengthening language and literacy skills.
