Play stores are great, but often not practical if you live in a small home. Jill devised a small, but no less fun, version of a play store for her daughters this Christmas. She started with a wood flower box and ended up with…
This! It has more height than before, but the footprint is the same. Best of all, she designed it to be extremely versatile to accommodate different kinds of "products" for her girls to sell. Jill describes:
I came up with this store using a simple flower box that I found in my parents' garage. I added about $10 worth of wood pieces to turn it into this store. It fits nicely on the girls' little white table, and when they are done playing can be stored away in a closet. I made wooden flowers, ice cream cones, and lollipops which can be easily switched out to change the type of store.
Thanks Jill! Readers, see more of this mini play store on Jill's blog Snuggle Bug University and find her tutorial here to make your own. She also has an Etsy store where she sells delightful wood play food/accessories.
