Super-Gemma made the oven from the cheap white bookshelf that we use for everything. She cut 2 pieces of cardboard from a big box, covered them in aluminum foil and glued black construction paper on the front to make windows and knobs. The doors latch with a tiny piece of velcro on the shelf. Genius!
The cashier totals everything up, and the sale is complete!
This center is so.much.fun. Have I already mentioned that?! It’s perfect for this time of year because it taps into an activity that many students are currently doing at home with their families — baking cookies. Plus, it goes very well with our Gingerbread Man unit, and of course in a couple of weeks we will have to make cookies for Santa!
All of the signs, labels, recipes, and order forms are available in this “Cookie Shop” dramatic play set. If you use it in your classroom, we’d love to see some pictures! Post them on our Facebook page and let us know how your little bakers liked it.
Have fun playing and learning with your children today!
