Bring your play kitchen to life by adding some cereal for children to pour, measure, scoop and nibble on.

Time: 5 minutes to prepare
Age: Under 5s and 5 to 10s
Level: Easy

Materials
Some of your own pots, cake tins and utensils.





Children's kitchen toys and equipment.



A packet of your choice of cereal. I like rice pops, because my children like to add water and listen to them snap crackle and pop.
A table cloth or sheet to lay on the ground and catch the fallen cereal for easy tidying up
A dish or trough
Some tables and play kitchen ovens, cupboards etc

Method
Lay the table cloth or sheet on the ground

Arrange the tables and play kitchens around the table cloth, leaving space in the middle for the dish or trough.
Leave plenty of space for children to walk around their kitchen.
Arrange pots, pans and utensils on the furniture.



Fill the dish or trough with cereal.



Invite your children to cook in their kitchen. Use this opportunity to teach them counting, measuring and volume.
