Holiday Cookies Wooden Play Food Set
Reinforce basic skills, encourage creativity, and celebrate the holidays with this pretend-play cookie set! This wooden toy food set lets kids slice and "bake" half a dozen wooden cookies, then decorate them for Christmas. A box of sturdy play food includes a tube of six sliceable cookies with six decorative toppings, plus a wooden cookie sheet, knife, and spatula. Follow the "baking" directions to encourage unlimited imaginative play and learning!
Extension Activities: More Ways to Play and Learn:
- Ask the child to slice the cookie dough into six cookies, counting aloud. Now ask the child to
place a cookie topping on top of each cookie, counting to six once again.
- Ask the child to make cookies to order. For examples, you might request a cookie with a
snowflake decoration, or two cookies with sprinkles.
- Hide one of the decorated cookies in a small gift box, and encourage the child to ask questions
about the mystery cookie to guess which one it is.
- Use the wooden cookies as templates to trace circles onto a piece of paper. Ask the child to
decorate the new "cookies" with crayons, markers, stamps or stickers. (You can also supply a pair
of child-safe scissors to cut out the paper cookies, then add a name label to use them as gift tags.)
