This heatwave hitting my city right now has us staying indoors for most of the afternoon. If you can't stand the heat, get out of the play kitchen for awhile and play flower shop with the kids.
We saw this cute felt flower store over at Mondo Cherry and fell in love with it because it is easy to set up. You can make felt flowers using straws as the stem and felt for the petals, or use tissue or tissue paper for a simpler version. Of course you can always use real or silk flowers from the bargain bin as well. Some glass jars and vases, a play cash register and a few signs are all you need to create a busy little flower store. For more photos of this delightful play idea, check out Mondo Cherry.
