Today we are just using a heap of empty boxes we have in our craft cupboard to make a pretend shop.
My daughter is practicing her writing and numbers - which she loves do at the moment - by making price tags for everything. We printed out a picture to use as a cash register.
It's heaps of fun, and we can use the boxes again another day.
Juliet also knew I was a bit worried about her for the last week so she made me a very cool picture with a flippy head of different pictures - she used the last bit of a small notepad for the head and drew a different picture on each page. It was very creative. (But hard to describe and photograph.) It reminded me of the flip animated books that were around when I was little.
