The Little Book of Role Play Windows provides a range of fun role play activities, in which scenarios are acted out through a window made using just a cardboard box. Playing with pedal cars can transform into a car park scenario with car park attendant; dressing up play can be extended by creating a fancy dress hire shop; and playing with soft toy animals can lead on to a trip to the vets!
