Candy Bear Restaurant

 The middle girls have been learning about money. PF and I decided it would be fun to create a play restaurant during lunch time. PF created a menu with prices. She was also the hostess and waitress. I got to be the cook.
 Greeting her guest as they came in.

 Deciding on what to get for lunch. They were able to pick a main dish and two sides.
 PF took down all the orders.
 Serving lunch.
After they enjoyed lunch, PF wrote out their bill. Butterfly and Ladybug had to total it. Then we used chocolate gold coins to count out how much they owed. We all had so much fun with our pretend restaurant. This experience was such a great way to teach them proper behavior in a restaurant, how to order for themselves, practice with math and paying for a meal.
