Pretend Grocery Store

by Trish Kuffner, author of The Toddler's Busy Book

Toddlers can have fun filling up baskets with just about anything in the pretend grocery store.


Toddlers have fun filling up bags and baskets with just about anything. For variety, use blocks or Duplo in place of the groceries suggested here.

Materials
  • Paper bag with handles or small basket
  • Empty food boxes and containers

Directions

  1. Save up empty food boxes and containers. Pudding or Jell-O boxes work well, as do cereal boxes, small yogurt containers, and empty vitamin bottles.
  2. Seal the boxes with tape, then use a glue gun to permanently attach the lids to the small containers. (They may be a choking hazard.)
  3. Store all your "groceries" in a box or laundry basket.
  4. Your child will have fun "going shopping" with a paper bag or small basket.
