What I used:
a tray, bowls, and spoon from our B Toys Let’s Dish Set
a few extra kitchen items
dry apple cereal
So easy to set up:
Clean out the tray and then add cereal. Grab the play kitchen items and add them next. Last, just add in some pretend apples.
When he woke up from his nap to find this invitation to play he was overjoyed! Not only was it all his, but it had one of his favorite snacks inside, cereal.
I talked about the colors with him, the fruit inside the bin, the items he was playing with. A great time to work on vocabulary with the kids is during playtime.
The clean up was not hard either. I made sure the rug was nice and clean before letting him play(this is a pretty new rug too). Between him picking up the cereal that fell out of the bin and me vacuuming, the floor was clean in seconds. I put the tray up for later. Just put the cereal in a large ziploc bag and you can get it out again for playtime.
