It’s been a while since we pulled out the play dough. With the super cold temperatures we’ve had, it was the perfect time to get it out for some pretend play. And what better use than to make some pretend play cookies for our Cardboard Box Sweet Shop?
I pulled out the accessories need to make cookies: rolling pins, some cute cutters, and of course some play dough!
The kids had fun rolling out the dough and cutting shapes.
(Can you tell this is our art table?)
Of course, cookies are more fun with sprinkles! I thought about using glitter at first, but then decided on using some of our colored sand. The texture is more like real sugar sprinkles, and it’s a little easier to clean up then glitter.
The preschooler enjoyed getting pinches of the colorful “sugar” to coat each cookie.
We put the cookies on trays and even put them in the oven for a few minutes to “bake” before serving them to our furry customers.
Pretend play is always fun, and this one was especially sweet!
What are some of your favorite ways for pretend play with the kids?

Those cookies look yummy!! So fun!
We love play dough! So many ways to explore and create! We especially love decorating play dough mats.
We haven’t tried any play dough mats yet. I’ll have to look into that!
I don’t want to spam you, so feel free to delete this, but I have some free shape play dough mats in my Teachers Pay Teachers store if you would like to try them out.
Going to check them out when the kids get into bed! 🙂
Glad to see kids are still enjoying play dough these days! #BYB100

Oh MY goodness this looks so fun. I bet they loved it. My daughter is 10 now and still loves to ‘make cookies’ like this.
So glad to hear that love of pretend doesn’t disappear when they hit those double digits! 🙂

Great idea! I’ll keep this close by for one of our activities!!
They had a lot of fun doing it, especially putting them into the oven and pretending the timer went ding! 🙂

Great idea using sand instead of glitter! My girl’s just barely used Playdoh for the first time this past Christmas and it’s easily become one of our favs! Thanks for sharing on Sunday FUNday!
I love pretend play 🙂
You are such a sweet Mommy– your babies will cherish this sweet memory forever!
Thanks for sharing with us via Mommy Monday!
At least this type of cookies don’t burn! 😉
This looks like it was a great deal of fun!
