Pretend Baking Exploration

Dramatic Play Exploration with Baking

Week of February 10, 2014

            To continue our exploration of food and restaurants this week, I brought in a variety of materials used for baking.  The children enjoyed exploring with cupcake pans, oven mitts, measuring cups, and mixing spoons.  Children filled the big bowl with various play food and enjoyed collaboratively mixing the ‘cupcakes’ with each other.  They also liked wearing the oven mitts.  They showed some understanding that we wear them while cooking something hot.  I also observed children place their cupcakes in the ‘oven’ to bake.
