Make your airport dramatic play center come alive in your preschool classroom with these exciting props! Start by checking in and getting your boarding pass. Each boarding pass is labeled with a letter of the alphabet to incorporate letter identification. Then, go through security with your luggage (either the included printable luggage with luggage tags to incorporate name writing or with backpacks at school). Make your way to the gate and board the airplane (includes a printout of a plane to make into a poster-size plane).

Onboard, the pilots can drive the plane with the cockpit printout and steering wheel, while the passengers can enjoy their in-flight entertainment (on the back of the chairs), look out their windows (painted as a craft), and order snacks from the snack menu. There are so many ways to learn through play with this airport dramatic play!
