September’s theme for the Play-dates website is Pizza Shop!   The kids always want to help make pizzas at home, but some of the ingredients are too hot and I do not want them near the stove.  This is perfect for them to play, while mommy cooks! What I love is this site gives you step by step directions.

So  just print the images and the kids can follow along.  Plus with Play-Doh it gets the creative juices flowing.   My children even added different toppings to their pizzas!   My son is a plain cheese kind of kid, while my daughter got creative and made hers with "ham" and "banana peppers"  or so that is what she told me they were!  Below are a couple pictures of my son's "creations"...  he claimed they were cheese pizzas, but looked like more of a burger to me, but that is where creativity comes into play.   Play-Doh allows kids to let their imagination loose.   They can look at pictures and directions, but come up with something on their own!     He even made me a "heart pizza"!!!

Next up was making the boxes to deliver their creations in!!! You can print the pattern for the pizza box on  card stock  or a heavy paper.   Either cut the boxes out yourself or monitor the children with safety scissors and fold/tape the boxes!

Play-Doh Play-Date activities are perfect for your own children,  play dates, preschool classes and even day cares.  Play-Doh Play-Date activities takes care of the planning  for you!   Plus since you can download printable instructions, plans and ideas all in one place it will save you time and energy!
