I was not disappointed. Natalie sent me an email with a wealth of great ideas. Now since you all have been really nice to me let me share one with you. (I will probably share more later but I have to hold on to my precious post ideas:))
Ok are you ready for it? Get your pens and paper....
Bet you didn't guess that from the title didjya?
Ok here's what you need:
- Store items
- Price Tags
- Money (Anna and Natalie use little erasers, Hudson and I used pennies)
Hudson choose noodles right away as well as the crackers
Here he is trying to figure out how much he needs to pay for this item.
The noodles were 6 pennies and the Crackers were 3.
He had 10 pennies to spend. Here he is counting out 9 pennies to buy his lunch.
(Please excuse this picture quality not sure what happened there). I did add some tomato sauce to the noodles and peabutter to the crackers to make is more nutritious and tasty :)
Next time we play I hope to have a few more props. Things such as a basket and a wallet.
I may use more seasonal items next time as well such as Christmas toys and ornaments or things one would wrap a present with (paper, bows, ribbon, tape...etc)
Hope this is helpful to some of you and thank you Natalie for the fantastic idea!
