Little Baker's Cafe

The students played restaurant to review adding money.  I gave each student a menu and a "waiter/waitress pad".   They took turns being the waiter or waitress and asking what each person wanted for a drink, appetizer, entree, and dessert.  After they were done getting the orders, they switched within their group.  After everyone in their group had their chance to take the orders, they added up how much each person spent on drinks, then they added entrees, and then finally they added the desserts and appetizers together.  Once they had 3 final totals, they added those three amounts together to get a final total.  They really enjoyed being able to do something fun and out of the ordinary for math.  I actually had quite a few want to keep their menus to play at home and some of my girls took them outside to play restaurant at recess! :) You can purchase this activity at TeachersPayTeachers.
