In the dramatic play area, the children worked hard at a “Bakery” to create gingerbread cookies. They pretended to mix, roll, cut, and decorate the dough. They put their cookies on a cookie sheet and used oven mitts to place the cookies in a pretend oven. It was a blast!
The materials used for this experience included:
- gingerbread scented play dough
- cookie cutters
- rolling pins
- cookie sheets
- pretend oven
- oven mitts
- baker hats
- buttons (to decorate cookie)
To extend on this experience, I want to add a cash register and more plastic baked goods to the dramatic play area so there play will take place more in the dramatic play area than the play dough table.
