It's no wonder this Grocery Store from Melissa & Doug is so popular among childcare providers. This piece of furniture is so flexible, allowing for so many
ways to use it in your space.
Over the last few years I've seen this piece transformed into some fabulous Dramatic Play invitations. From Shops, to Restaurants the possibilities are endless.
In addition to this wonderful collection of Melissa & Doug Grocery Store Photos from the Daycare Spaces and Ideas Community Members, you will also find freebies at the bottom of this post.
