Make A Paper Pizzeria

Make Your Own Pizzeria - fun DIY cardboard pizza project for kids

I had a lot of kids over the other day and they decided they wanted to play pretend pizzeria. So we gathered a few craft supplies and stated making pizza to sell in the restaurant. We had so much fun!

I’ve learned from experience that simple ideas from your kids are always the best ones.

So we cut some leftover cardboard circles. We wrapped our slices, and then each child was responsible for one topping.  Each little pizza chef cut out the colored paper, either mozzarella, mushroom, basil, etc. All the children gathered together for the prepping. Then it was time to play. One child decided to take orders, the other one to be the head pizza chef, and the rest played the role of hungry customers.
