or 'lolly shop' as we'd say in australia. this is a very popular role play!
the boys set out lots of plastic boxes and fill them with the cupboard's treats. depending on whether there has been a party/easter/christmas... the selection varies. quite a lot to choose from at the moment!
they use my kitchen scales and their toy cash register and my little product bags to have their own shop.
it is helping freddie with his coins and counting (i am hoping!) and, well, harry just likes collecting sweets.
today's selections include
- easter eggs - big, small and mini
- animal crackers
- lollipops left from last years summer party (i have been avoiding giving them out!)
- fizzy sweets from last half term
- easter choc lollipops.
boys happy for time being.. lots of reminders from me that they aren't actually going to eat their bounty. which i think they are taking on board.
