Pretend Cake Tutorial

It’s amazing how much learning actually takes place during pretend play. The first time I discovered that my son could add and subtract efficiently, without prior lessons and without prompting, was while playing grocery store. I was astonished as he added up my total! Thanks to several rainy days, we’ve recently had a great deal of time to devote to indoor pretend play and we’ve rediscovered grocery store fun. And thanks to this video from Inner Child Fun, we have lots of gorgeous new cakes to add to our collection!
