Creative Play

I always enjoy when the children decide to be creative in their play. On Monday they made a grocery store, taking our empty containers and boxes, pricing them, and setting them up on tables. George came up with the idea of making a cart out of a ride-on toy with boxes taped on. They also made a cash register and play money. They made sure to have soda on-hand for Daddy to buy since we rarely have it. He thought it was quite a deal at $1 a bottle. They also sold some hats and a couple of toys. Re-Pete was the cashier and George was the bagger. The rest of us shopped. By the time they were done the store was cleaned out.

What can be more educational. I love when the children put their creativity into play and do things like this. Great pictures. Do they use play money or real? I ask because I let the kids use my chain jar!

That's what I love to see! And they don't even realize what a great educational experience it is! :)
