One of the good things about having kids who love to have a pretend play taking place in a kitchen is that you can always take different materials and turn them into different food items including cakes and cookies!
Today we would like to share a simple sensory play activity taking place in our child sized kitchen with only 2 items you should have on hand to kick start the fun!
How about your kids? Do they like to pretend play in their kitchens? Or yours?
My daughter LOVES Raffaello. The real one, I mean! So, it was an instant idea for pretend play in the kitchen: Let’s make Raffaello! And what better than cotton wool?!
For this sensory play activity, you will need:
- cotton wool
- mini baking cups
Let a child separate baking cups and help them count how many they would need. Great for fine motor skills! Even if they don’t know their numbers yet, it’s always good to repeat until they can grasp full meaning of numbers and counting.
Next she was putting her Raffaello in mini paper baking cups and on a tray. For the end, she decided to serve it on a plate to her dad! He also loves Raffaello!
At all time, she had these Oobi eye puppets she was playing with before we started making our cotton wool Raffaello! You could probably see them on almost all pictures!
