The Luckett Boys’ Coffee Shop

I have recently discovered the blog, Happy Hooligans. It has activities that are used at a home daycare. I have decided that I want to be a Hooligan. Every activity they do looks like so much fun!

Every Saturday and Sunday morning, the boys help their dad make coffee. When I saw this post on the Hooligans’ Coffee Shop, I knew we needed to do our own coffee shop.

My sweet mother in law went to the dollar store and mailed us a bunch of coffee shop supplies. She also lent us her milk frother so the boys could make foam for their coffee. I gathered a few other things that we had around the house and we set up shop.

Our Supplies:

  • plastic pitcher
  • spice shakers
  • plastic squirt bottle
  • disposable coffee cups
  • “coffee” (dirt)
  • stir sticks
  • water
  • dish soap
  • milk frother
  • small metal pitcher
  • large jug for water refills
  • food coloring
  • pastries

I filled the plastic pitcher with water and we used the dirt for coffee.

In the metal pitcher, I added a few squirts of dish soap and some water. The boys used the milk frother in the pitcher to make foamy milk.

We filled the shakers and squirt bottle with some water and food coloring. The food coloring was not necessary, but, why not!?

Here was my delicious cafe latte and pastry.

This had to be one of the most fun activities we have done.  This probably kept the boys entertained for an hour. They have been asking to do a coffee shop every day since.
