An Invitation to Play: Cardboard Cookie Shop

The other week both YC and EC had a play date after school so it was a very full house with 5 children running around. As always I had a couple of activities/crafts planned just in case they are needed.  The boys immediately went outside and weren’t to be seen until dinner and the girls decided that they actually wanted to play with the cardboard cookie shop.

Make sure you follow my activity board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

You will need:

  • Cardboard
  • Scissors
  • Shaving foam
  • Food colouring
  • Spoons
  • Sprinkles*

*Something like sequins, we used Hama beads.

Start by cutting out some circles from cardboard to make the base of the cookies. I think I cut out a total of 16 circles.  Of course they can always be reused.

Before they all got back from school I had turned part of the kitchen table into a cookie shop with a couple of bowls of shaving foam mixed with food colouring, some Hama beads as sprinkles, and some spoons and knifes.

The girls loved designing their cookies. I would pretend to be a customer and come in to buy some cookies.  Then used some really money to pay for them (I did get my coins back at the end).  This activity kept them perfectly happy from when we got home until tea time.  They did ask if they could keep the cookies, but the shaving foam made the cardboard all soggy.

Clean up was pretty easy from this. The bowls simply got rinsed out (any Hama beads were rescued and put back in their box) and placed in the dishwasher. The cardboard cookies were put in the recycling.

I would say make sure your little ones don’t eat the shaving foam, but apparently it’s the adults you need to be careful of!

If you enjoyed this cardboard cookie shop be sure to check out my Captain America frozen activity, French skipping, and panning for gold.
