Beside our dramatic play centre, I placed one of our smaller tables, near the windows with my signs for the flower shop. In the centre of the table, I put a basket of pencils and markers and some blank paper. When I introduced the centre to the children, I told them the flower shop needed help. I explained that we needed more signs and pictures of flowers for customers to see. I also told them we were running out of order forms for when customers called in to the store for deliveries, and asked if they could help make some of these to help.
It was amazing to see what the children created! We had beautiful pictures, sale signs, and unique order forms. One child even made a price list of flowers. She drew flowers on one half of the paper and numbers on the other!
It never amazes me what children can create, if given enough time and opportunity.
