Dramatic Play Hot Chocolate
Teach your littles to greet customers like this, “Welcome to the Hot Cocoa Stand, what can I get for you today?” Don’t forget to ask your customers what size hot chocolate they want when you’re writing down their orders on the order form!

The printable hot cocoa cup sleeves will give your dramatic play hot chocolate shop that extra special touch. Just ask your local coffee shop if they will donate some drink cups to your class, or you can purchase them at your local grocery store. Then, print the sleeves, cut, and tape around your cups.
Print, cut, and place the order forms on clipboards in your center with pencils so your little baristas can start taking those hot chocolate orders right away! The forms are available in two different sizes, half-page and 1/4 page, so you can choose the size that best meets your needs and those of your students.
