What do you buy when you go to the shops?  Milk, sweeties, honey, chippies, clothes, toys and much, much more! These were just a few of the answers we got from our Pups when we asked them that question, they were very happy to share their entire shopping lists with us.

For this week’s art, our Pups got to make their own money wallets and purses so that they could put their pretend money into them, and after all their shopping they can use it to buy all their items with. However only the wallets and purses will go home, we will be keeping the fake money for the years to come.  We got the Pups to scratch over coins with crayon so that the imprint of the R5 or R2 could show on the paper, some needed a little help but most of our Pups could apply enough pressure on their own. The teachers then cut up old newspaper, folded them, and then turned them into a wallet or purse.

Thank you to all of our Playful Pups parents for supporting this activity by bringing items for our Ecokids shop and a big thank you to Pops Toys for sponsoring the very cool shopping bags. Our Pups had so much fun doing their shopping, whatever they could put their hands on they took. We hope our Pups enjoy all their little goodies.

A highlight of the week was the reptile show on Wednesday. The Pups couldn’t believe what they saw! Some of them were very brave and touched the reptiles being shown, while others kept their distance but were still very curious. Seeing their big eyes light up as the snakes and spiders came close was definitely something special.
