Create Your Own Café  

An #Oskarslittleartists Activity Tutorial by Jess @learnandbloom, for Oskar's Wooden Ark

May 26, 2021

Fancy opening your own café ? With a bit of creativity, a selection of play food and some willing customers, you can! 

Don't forget to share your photos with us on Instagram and Facebook, tagging @oskarswoodenark and using the hashtag: #oskarslittleartists. We'd love to see your café creations!

Deciding what you will serve at you cafe

What's on the menu? Will you be serving baked goods? Cakes and coffees? How about a salad bar?  

Make your menu PICTURE PERFECT! Add illustrations to each menu item using Kitpas art crayons.

Observational drawing

A fun way to do this is to put the food items on the table in front of you and draw via observation - looking closely at each object and trying to replicate it.

Now it's time to welcome your guests into your café. What will they order today?

Cafe role play
Paying the bill

Your guests have finished their meal and it is time for them to pay. Will you charge a service fee? Do they need change?

This activity provides the opportunity to focus on art, role-play and early Maths learning. Watch the video below (Part Two) to see the boys calculating how much money they will need in order to pay for their chosen items.
