the corner store

November 7th, 2008 at 06:58 pm

Well more like a door way store. Even more precise, in my way store.

The older two (non napping) kids have set up a store between my kitchen and living room, which if I were not sitting on my duff wasting time I would be walking through to do dishes and laundry.

It seems one grape is 10cents or a box of 20 for $2 (no bulk discounts)

There is also blue cheese, "no one usually buys it because it isn't very good, no one really likes it so we upped the price"

Or the 20lb chicken for $100 (half is $50, 5 lb is $25).only available in 20lb, 10 lb, or 5 lb, sizes.

What amazes me, isn't the imagination or the desire to buy is that they have the patience to sort out all the grapes (purple scraps) from the blueberries, from the chicken (white paper) meal after meal after meal, so they can buy them again!

Regardless I am very glad they not only have the time to waste on this, they also already did a weeks worth of 'schooling'.

No off my duff to work.

    Cool We are setting up a store soon. These guys tend to set up restaurants! It is so much fun to "teach" math thru play.

    My kids set up store a while ago and my 5yo left money out by the items for people who couldn't pay. LOL. It was so cute. He's got a bit to learn about economics.

    I remember playing school as a kid. But these kids love playing STORE for whatever reason.
