Pretend Play – Grocery Store

For B’s 3rd birthday, we built him this grocery store.

We used two shoe organizers (turned on their sides) for the bottom, a piece of shelf we stumbled upon at Lowes for the counter ($9.99) and shoe bins ($1 each) to organize the food.

A few extra special details are the hooks on the side for bags, price tags, a hat and nametag, and a sign (not shown). Hours of fun for a small price!

  7. How clever is this? I LOVE it. The fact that everything is in a bin that I can put a lid on & pack away makes it perfect for us since we only live in a small townhouse.
