One of my favorite Mommy projects is the pretend play area. Last week we had a fun cafe, the week before that a stage area complete with keyboard and tambourines. I’ve been hesitant to post these set ups because they don’t photo well. This week we are having fun with a grocery lesson plan, so of course I set up a grocery store. I hope the pictures are good enough to inspire a shopping corner in your little area of the world.
I collected boxes and other containers. (In all honesty, I’m always collecting boxes. This was just in time to clean out my overly clutter art cabinet!)
I set up our cash register
, leaving a little space on the table top for a conveyor belt.
I had the hardest time finding play money. I don’t know why, I’ll probably come across it at every store from here on out! I found some old fake change (because I have bought play money in the past!) and I cut rectangle pieces of paper to represent dollars. We will probably get more creative with it throughout the week.
I added coupons, old name tags, purses, wallets and reusable grocery bags.
have want a kid shopping cart. They are big, and I don’t really care for one purpose BIG toys. So instead I gathered up a few baskets and boxes for the kids to fill with items they wish to purchase.
So, are the photos good enough? If they work you’ll see a lot more posts like this one!
This post is a part of the GROCERY lesson plan.
