Cooking with children helps develop their math skills and helps them to learn how to follow directions. It also allows for some great conversation! Ask many questions while cooking with your children to encourage conversation! Be sure to ask specific themed questions while making these fun snacks!
Set your dramatic play area up to be a restaurant. Add a table with tablecloth, chairs and a kitchen area for the chefs to cook! Have all the items they need to serve food: plates, utensils, cups, trays to serve with, etc.
Provide clipboards and pens and paper for the servers to take orders. Provide a toy cash register and money as well!
The children can help make menus! Ask them what types of food your restaurant will serve. Print the words of the foods and draw a picture next to each so they can "read" the menus!
