Bread Ideas


Dramatic Play Bakery.  During our bread unit, I make a huge batch of homemade play dough but add no food coloring so it looks like white bread dough. I provide aprons, oven mitts, a make-shift oven, tablecloth, bread pans, muffin pans, various other pans, rolling pins, a large bowl, spoon, measuring cups and spoons, play ingredients: flour (stuff an empty flour package with newspaper and glue back shut), salt, plastic eggs, play milk carton, etc. This play area has been such a hit. I control how many play at a time by the number of aprons. I also encourage them to “sell” their baked goods and add a cash register, etc. Makes for some great photo opportunities!
