Pretend Play – 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!
