Winter time is a great time to share a cup of hot chocolate with a friend.
We turned our dramatic play center into a hot chocolate shop!
So much learning can take place while children are pretending!
The children took turns ordering hot chocolate and cookies as customers and other children were taking the orders. We counted out money as we ordered different size cups of hot chocolate. We had small, medium and large cups. As the orders came in the children also wrote down what was ordered.
Our hot chocolate and marshmallows were made out of felt.
At clean up time the felt pieces turned into a sorting game.
