We seem to be immersed in a hot chocolate theme here. Our Pre-K teacher just set up a Hot Chocolate Shop center and the children love it. I went in on Monday and almost every child was in the Hot Chocolate Shop and I had about 10 cups of hot chocolate and an immense amount of cookies.
The center is very basic, but oh how fun for them. She moved the kitchen around and added some styrofoam cups, some empty containers of powdered chocolate mix, some "marshmallows" (white pom poms), tablets, pens, pretend cookies, plates, and the cash register.
Seeing how much fun they are having with the center is really inspiring us to make sure we set up new centers more often.
Even our interactive board for the month includes some hot chocolate:
