One of the fun things we did last spring is play store. This is a great way to incorporate learning with play, and it’s great for different ages.
Prior to playing store, I grabbed some boxes and cans from our recycling bin. I added some sticker dots and put a price on each item. I also printed out some pretend money.
A was shopping at the store and had to add up how much her items cost. She also had to make sure she had enough money to purchase the items.
L played the cashier (old laptop added to pretend he was scanning items and typing in numbers). He also practiced bagging the items in paper bags.
Lots of fun, and when they are done, it all goes back into the recycling bin again!
