When we were getting ready for PDR, we talked about what kind of a shop we would need and what we would use. We had loads of cardboard left over from our castle, so we used that to build a pet shop! We had lions, monkeys, cats and even a t-rex!
Our challenge was to figure out how to use what we had to build a realistic looking shop with shelves, signs and a till. The children came up with all of these ideas on their own, including a charity pot on the tills, signs to warn people of the dangerous animals, scratch marks in the lion and t-rex cage, pretend (but life-sized and realistic) money in a till draw and an open/closed sign for our door. They worked super hard and the finished product was amazing!
