Children will enjoy this role play activity, drawing upon their experiences and imagination.
Set aside an area of the room for this activity. Place a table and some chairs as a desk with a till and some play money. On another table or shelves place some baskets and a number of different summer objects, such as, hats, sun glasses, washed out bottles of sun cream, small spades, buckets, windmills, shorts, t-shirts, skirts, and sandles etc.
Use large stars to price the items and as a group make some summer pictures and posters to be hung up in their shop.
