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.

You can also introduce subtraction. “I have 7 cents. If I buy the 4 cent cookie, how much money will I have left?”

Here are some really great books to read along with playing:
