Hi, yes I did and it went well.
We have a few children who's mums are expecting a new baby, so I did this....
Baby roll play. I got all our dolls, blankets, toy push chair etc that we have at per-school, I also brought In my daughters old baby bath, crib, baby bottles etc.
I set it all up, and invited the children who's mums were expecting and any other children to come and play. I let them get on, whilst asking who was having a new baby etc, are they excited. What might baby be like -noisy, cry, sleep a lot. Will they help mummy bath the baby etc. should they water be warm or cold. I got a book from the school library about a new baby in the family.
Some children listened to me read it.
I just basically played along with them. We put the babies in the crib, made sure we used blankets carefully etc. talked about what they will eat.
It was fun, it ran its course naturally and as the children got bored or left, others came to play.
To be honest it was the easiest activity I did for my observations!
I'm just waiting now for my qualification to come through. I've basically finished.
Good luck. Keep posting if u need help.
