We recently discovered that creating a "play pizza" is just as fun as creating an edible one. First you gather all the ingredients, then layer them onto your pizza base. It's super simple and guaranteed to bring a smile to the kids faces. This is the perfect activity for kids who enjoy playing cafes - they can take your order and bring you back your pizza in no time.
Anyone for pizza
Time: 30 minutes
Age: Under 5's
1 piece of round cardboard
1 piece of red paper
1 piece of green paper
1 piece of black paper
1 piece of yellow paper
Take the round carboard and cut out the red paper into a neat circle shape to fit on top of the pizza base (this will now be known as the sauce).
Cut out smaller triangles, circles, squares and rectangles with the remaining sheets of colored paper to resemble your family's favorite pizza toppings (cheese, carrot, pineapple, ham etc, etc). This is also a great opportunity to learn about shapes.
Glue these onto the pizza sauce to create a colorful "supreme pizza".
Cut out colored shapes
When the glue is dry, you are ready to play "Pizza Cafe" games for the next few hours. Have fun.
