There is Gingerbread-scented playdough, baking tools, and pans for children to use and create treats with.  They put their treats in colorful packaging. 

The bakers need to count the number of treats they are putting in boxes. 

How many is a dozen? 

Is that box heavy?

There are fine motor, literacy, and math learning opportunities as children make signs, price tags and fulfill customer orders. Customers pay for their bakery treats. All of these learning opportunities happen through playful interactions and conversations facilitated by adults who know the language and curriculum that children should be exposed to in preschool.
