Let the kids create their own toy store!

Toy Store Prop Box


  • toys
  • stuffed animals
  • board games/card games
  • cash register
  • play money
  • blank stickers


  1. 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.
  2. The materials listed above are merely suggestions. You may come up with additional ideas and leave some of these materials out.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
