Let the kids create their own toy store!
- stuffed animals
- board games/card games
- cash register
- play money
- blank stickers
- Prop boxes are items grouped together by a theme to allow children to pretend. They can be used as specific activities or put out during free time.
- The materials listed above are merely suggestions. You may come up with additional ideas and leave some of these materials out.
- The boxes that hold 10 reams of computer paper/typing paper are a nice size for prop boxes. They can be covered with nice contact paper to make them more attractive.
- You might also consider a creative way of putting all the prop box materials into something that fits the theme. For example, a camping prop box might go in a backpack; a travel prop box could go in a suitcase.
Also consider activity K4 from the nature card set.
