Welcome to the "Rainbow Flower Shop" - name courtesy of Lilah! Yesterday we went out on a mission to the dollar store in the hopes of finding a bunch of beautiful
tacky plastic flowers! The girls were so excited with the idea of a shop and Lilah helped me wrap the cardboard boxes, write out and decorate the signs and set up the shop. It turned out so bright and colourful, just as we envisioned it.
But then we realized we didn't have a cash register and tell me, what shop does not have a cash register?
Actually, with this flower shop, one of my hopes was to work on a little math! Yikes, totally not my strong suit, but thankfully at this age it's all pretty basic! So today we went for a walk to a store not too far from our place and found a sweet little cash register. What child does not love a cash register? I specifically remember daydreaming about a cash register as a child. So, now we have the perfect little cash register. And with the elimination of the Canadian penny, it now means we have plenty of those kicking around our house, so I figured it would be the perfect way to work on some simple addition and subtraction, just by using the pennies! So much fun!
Oh, and I just love listening to the girls imaginations running wild as they role play in their new flower shop venture!
