We have been playing in our fruit and vegie shop for a few weeks now and it has evolved in that time (whilst staying simple and playful).
It all began with a clicky purse and some pretend money (thank you, Grandma) and Immy’s request to make a Fruit and Vegie Shop. We collected up our play food (for some reason we had to add our cardboard fish to this F&V shop??) and dedicated the top two shelves of a bookcase in the playroom to the shop.
We take turns being the customer and the shopkeeper and love tying in what we buy with cooking play in the play kitchen. There has been lots of vegetable soup and fruit salad on offer.
This week we added both a store sign and an open/closed sign to the shop. I love using play to introduce children to the many purposes print serves in real life. To read more about environmental print, you might like to revisit this post.
My favourite post from last week reminds us that simple, playful fun is often the best type.
I am looking forward to seeing what you have been playing.
Have a playful week,
