To prep: Print, laminate and cut out the pieces.

I attached the milk jugs to toilet paper rolls to help them stand up. Otherwise, this is a great set to use with play dough. (You can use small balls of play dough to hold the jugs upright.)

To play: Take turns being customers and bakers. 10 cookies have prices on them that are perfect to practice counting to 10.

Have the kids count out the correct number of coins to purchase each cookie.

Another way to play is to pretend that you are a customer. Tell the baker “I have 5 cents. Which cookies can I buy?” Show your child that you can either buy the 2 cent and 3cent, 4 cent and 1 cent or 5 cent cookies to use all of your money.

  1. You post is so inviting! My kids are going to love this one for sure. I can’t wait to make a bakery banner. I love a good DIY project. šŸ™‚

  2. I really like this. I started paying for things with pennies when I was little and for me it was my introduction to money. I will use this for my girls.
