What To Do This Weekend: Stock a Little Shop

So you've made your kids a play kitchen, but don't have the time or inclination to sew some felt food - stock a shop for them! Amida made this one by stuffing food packaging with pages torn from a phone book. Your kids can put it on their kitchen shelves to "cook" with or they can play shop (at these prices, we're shopping at your house, Amida!).

Check out Amida's post at her wonderful blog, Journey Into Unschooling, to see what direction her kids took this (hint: coupons, cash and credit cards) and to check out some of the "fresh" food she made.

(For more inspiration, revisit Jakob's supermarket.)
