It is really great when the rain forces creative play at our house. The kids set up shops throughout the house, each with their own individual theme.
Andrew had a sporting goods store. He collected anything from balls to racquet's to bobble heads. Priced everything on his own. I guess it never hurts to dream big. Charlie raided the kitchen for candy for his candy shop. He also priced things pretty high. Dum dums for $1. He also was asking $1 for Hershey kisses. I'll tell you, it was a very expensive candy shop.
Libby spent hours getting ready for the opening of her variety store. Making everything by hand, all her own creation. That's my girl!
They sat in their stores, reading books, waiting for customers, a.k.a. mommy! Occasionally they would close their own store to shop in another.
