10 Mini Cupcakes in a Bakers Shop……

Nursery rhyme - 10 current buns

…..round and fat with a cherry on the top! 

This is one of my favourite children’s songs, known as 10 Current Buns; I have altered the words Current Buns to Mini Cupcakes to fit in with our Mini cupcake props.

These mini cupcakes were made previously and they are great for an imaginative play prop.  We incorporated the song 10 Mini Cupcakes and role played the actions on cue with the words.

Kids love to take on different roles, dress up and pretend in an imaginary world.  So much fun!

Taking on the different roles and dressing up as little bakers and customers.  Using imaginative play props such as an apron, chef’s hat, tongs for lifting the cupcakes, a handbag for the customer, cash register and bottles tops for pretend coins.

Let’s Play

Let’s Learn 

Bakers Shop is a wonderful imaginative play opportunity to promote:

  • Mathematic concepts and problem solving: understanding subtraction and how many is left.
  • Social skills: taking in turns, sharing and negotiation.
  • Language skills: practising listening, looking and talking.
