Flower Shop Dramatic Play Pack
These adorable flower shops were created by our Pre-K Printables Club Members using the "Welcome to the Flower Shop" dramatic play pack.
I just love this sweet stand Lugene B. set up for her kids.
Lugene added a variety of faux flowers and floral props.
Cassandra found a variety of props to add to her stands! I love how she placed the flower photo cards in an album.
