Preparing Your Child for Preschool – Play Cash Register
Yesterday, I mentioned how we use play foods to learn about healthy foods in our home. Another way that you can use play foods is with a toy cash register. Toy cash registers are also nice as it sort of works to disguise learning. Your child may end up having so much fun that they don’t even realize that they are actually learning something new.
The play cash register that we have is pictured above. It was bough from Wal-Mart, I believe. It was one of the cheapest ones that they had. The numbers pad really works and the scanner beeps and lights up when you push the button. In addition to learning about the foods sold at a grocery store, using a play cash register can also help you teach your child about money, as well as practice counting.
