Ideas on How to Use the Garden Store Dramatic Play Printables
Here are some ideas on how to use the Garden Store Dramatic Play Printables. Of course, there is no “right way” and I encourage you to do what works for you with materials you already have! Additionally, I’d love to hear about how you use these printable resources. Please leave a comment below.
Use cardboard tubes (like recycled paper towel rolls) to stand up trees and tomato plants.
Attaching the tree and tomato plant printables to cardboard tubes is a great way to get them to stand up for your garden play center. I loosely cut around the trees and vegetables and then attached them to the cardboard tubes with tape. I think for younger kids that might have trouble standing up a cardboard tube, attaching the trees and vegetables to recycled cardboard boxes (i.e. cereal boxes) is a great alternative.
Brown paper bags make great pretend soil bags.
To create soil bags for the pretend garden store, I stuffed a brown paper lunch bag (affiliate link) with newspaper and taped the soil printable to the outside.
Attach seed packet printables to brown paper bags for a more substantial prop.
I also cut brown paper bags (affiliate link) into three equal pieces and attached each seed packet with tape. This process created a more substantial seed packet for kids to play with.
Use wooden craft sticks and a recycled egg carton to make a flower stand.
To make adorable flowers for our pretend garden stand, I cut out individual flowers from the flower printable and attached them to the ends of wooden craft sticks (affiliate link) with tape.
Once they were secure, I needed a stand for them. The bottom of an egg carton works perfectly when the ends of the popsicle stick are stuck through the peaks down the middle of the egg carton. The flowers can be easily taken out and replaced in this stand!
The recycled egg carton provides a spot for five flowers. You can obviously add more egg cartons if you wish to have more flowers in your dramatic play garden center.
Additional props to kick up your Garden Store Dramatic Play Center a notch!
There are some super fun kids’ toys, costumes, and office supplies that might also enhance garden store play. Here they are.
- Cash Register for the cashier station (affiliate link)
- Kids Gardening Costume (affiliate link)
- Flower Pots to sell in the pretend store (affiliate link)
- Card Holder with Lanyard to protect staff badges (affiliate link)
- Laminating sheets to make printables last longer (affiliate link). I like these because a laminating machine is not necessary.
