Young children naturally love to pretend they’re doing “grown-up” things – it’s a fun and important part of childhood development. The Melissa & Doug Wooden Slice and Bake Cookie Set lets children ages three and up pretend to bake, decorate, and serve cookies, all while practicing fine motor skills, learning number concepts, and more.
The Slice and Bake Cookie Set features a dozen cookies that are packaged in a cardboard tube that looks just like a tube of cookie dough from the grocery store. Because they’re held together with Velcro, the cookies slide out in one piece. Use the wooden toy knife to “slice” the cookies apart – the Velcro makes a satisfying slicing sound when it separates.
Lay the cookies on the tray and “bake”. Once the cookies are done “baking”, it’s decorating time! The 12 vanilla and chocolate frosting pieces attach to the cookies with Velcro. They are painted with different looking sprinkles, candy pieces, and icing patterns, so your child can create a variety of different looking cookies. After the decorating is done, your child can serve them up with the included wooden toy spatula.
Adults can place custom orders for cookies, play counting and matching games, and more. If you’re at a loss for ideas, Melissa & Doug includes interactive play ideas on the back of the cookie sheet that help you encourage your child to learn while she plays.
