AT-HOME PIZZA ACTIVITIES FOR KIDS

AT-HOME PIZZA ACTIVITIES FOR KIDS

Posted April 1, 2020

At Mici, we are very grateful for our loyal customers who continue to support us during this time.  Giving back has always been one of the cornerstones of our business, but these unprecedented times have motivated us to get creative with our company’s resources to pay it forward.

Co-owner Marissa Miceli has been using her past experience with non-profit organizations to facilitate the distribution of free food to front-line medical workers from each of our six Mici locations. If you or someone you know would like to get on our schedule, please contact Marissa here.

Co-founder, Kim Miceli was an educator in her past life, so with school closures happening all across the country, she was thrilled to put on her teacher hat and gather some fun (pizza-related) resources. We know kids love pizza, so we hope you will enjoy our new pizza kits and the following educational activities that will hopefully make your homeschool experience a little easier.

Check out Marissa’s husband (and sons) and Kim’s brother, Jeff Miceli, in this How to Make a Pizza Kit video.

 

 


We hope you enjoy the following educational resources:

ART AND DRAMATIC PLAY

For an interactive and fun way to recycle your pizza kit box, have your children make their own pizza out of a paper plate and use colored paper, paint, crayons, markers or our printable pizza toppings to decorate! Then, they can practice making their own pizza deliveries at home.

 

READING

Download Mici’s Make a Pizza activity that incorporates reading, number recognition, counting, shapes, colors (and eye-hand coordination and motor skills with lots of cutting).

Need someone else to read to your kids, while you take a 5 minute breather?  Check out these fun pizza-related read alouds from YouTube:

SCIENCE

Your children can learn how yeast makes pizza dough rise with this fun experiment.

Mici uses five simple ingredients to make fresh pizza dough every day.  See if your children can guess what they are: (flour, salt, sugar, water, yeast).
