Craft on! The Imagination Tree: Shoe Shop Dramatic Play! Create a fun shoe shop dramatic play set up for some engaging creative play, as well as some great opportunities for practising some literacy and maths skills along the way! Cakie is really into playing shops at the moment, since our garden centre/ flower shop that we set up in the garden a few weeks ago. Since we had just been shoe shopping and had a few boxes to hand, a shoe shop seemed the easy choice, plus one they would be able to remember and relate to very easily.
We went on a shoe hunt around the house and gathered some wellie boots, sandals, trainers and soft shoes in various sizes. I put my wellies out too to add even more of a size comparison. Cakie got her shop till filled with play coins and bank notes. I found an old, real telephone, a notepad and pens and a real tape measure. We drew around our feet and made two basic measuring guides, one for adults and one for children. I wrote the price labels and C. attached them to each pair of shoes. Learning Links: Play kitchen and market stall. Children Published on June 9th, 2011 | by Jules IKEAHacker Materials: Rast nightstand, Attest handles, Ribba picture ledge, plywood, screws, steamer bowls, faucet, paint, plexi, hinges and lots of small things Description: Present for my twins – that’s why a simple kitchen was not enough I turned the Rast night stand around for both the play kitchen and the market stall.
Kitchen I added an extra shelf and a divider to create space for the oven and the refrigerator. The worktop and the back of the kitchen are plywood cut to size. For the oven door I cut a hole out and added plexi, hinges and a magnetic closure. All the wooden parts for the kitchen are painted white, the inside of the oven is grey. Market stall I added an angular shelf in the middle of the night stand for the display of the wooden crates. . The roof construction was made out of two beams cut to the right length on either side of the Rast and two beams screwed in a slightly inclined angle. . ~ Gabi Lämmli, Switzerland.
