J really likes to help me cook and loves playing in the kitchen with me. So, after seeing this post from Play Create Explore, I knew that I needed to set up a pretend play activity for J using real ingredients from the kitchen.
I loaded up my muffin tin with spices, kidney beans, dyed rice, bread crumbs, pasta, and flour. I also sat out a banana, three glass bowls, and mixing spoons.
J had a great time measuring and mixing all the ingredients together.
One of his concoctions.
This was such a fun sensory activity that is great for his imagination. I’m tempted to set something like this up on a regular basis while I’m cooking dinner.
