C is for Cocoa! During snack time at preschool, I set up a hot cocoa shop. Each kiddo was given $1.00 in play money. We had a cashier, register, and real hot cocoa. (well hot chocolate packets). We talked about how you buy things you want and need. Then, if the kids wanted to... they could purchase hot cocoa. Each kids was given a foam cup, packet of hot chocolate and a spoon. I came around with the hot water and added it to their cup after they emptied their packet into the cup. We even had extra mini marshmallows that I bought at a local bulk food store. The kids had a blast! :) So much fun! I came home and set it up for the daycare kids as well. :) Learning should be fun! :) :) :) And this was!
Here are a few pictures from the shop at daycare, I forgot to take my camera to school!
We used real mugs at home.
Nice art work, Cort!
Fine Motor Marshmallows!
Don't be afraid of a mess. It took 3 seconds to clean up. So worth it!
