Melissa and Doug Sushi Counter
Budding young sushi chefs will be able to practice their rolling, wrapping, and slicing skills with this unique wooden sushi play set.
The 46-piece set includes a tabletop display/serving counter that holds all the ingredients for making maki rolls, nigiri, and temaki.
Lay the wooden sushi pieces on the felt nori strips, stick them together with the self-stick tabs, roll with the sushi mat, then slice and serve with ginger, wasabi, and soy sauce!
Order on the reusable menu/information/instruction card and pick up the pieces with chop sticks!

IN JAPANESE, PLEASE Have kids use the menu to help identify all the pieces in the set. Talk about the English and the Japanese name for each item.
STICK STACK Take turns using the chopsticks to stack items on top of each other on the serving tray. Continue until the tower topples! Next, challenge each other to use the chopsticks to move each ingredient from the counter to the tray and back again.
WHOLE & HALF Have kids make two three-piece sushi rolls, stick them together, then count the pieces. Have kids use the knife to slice the roll in the middle, then count the number of pieces in each section. Talk about "whole" and "half." Ask them to show you the "whole roll," then "half" of the roll.
MEMORY GAME Line up four pieces on the tray and have kids say the name of each. Have them close their eyes, remove one piece, then have them point out which piece is missing. Increase difficulty by adding and/or removing more pieces.
SORT & COUNT Have kids sort the items into groups, such as fish and vegetable, square pieces and rectangular pieces, or food and non-food pieces. Have them count the pieces in each group and determine which has more pieces and which has fewer.
