Serving up Learning
Have old plasticware and plastic bowls laying around the house?
Why not use them for a fun learning exercise!
We just happen to have an odd assortment in from our last party. So with a little fun and creative planning we turned those plasticware a lot of fun.
Materials I used:
- Plastic Bowls
- Pastic Spoons
- Play Rolling Pin (& fondant rolling pin for me)
- plastic letters or letter cookie cutters
- play dough or cookie dough
Label the spoons with letters, I choose to focus on a few word families and consonants (_ap and _op). Allow the child(ren) to roll out the door and stamp letters. Also have him/her match the letters to the spoons moving them from one bowl to the next. Make words with both the spoons and stamped letters. If you are stamping and baking cookies why not create a fun little picnic treat.
