Make lots of pairs of shoes. Cut them out and stick them onto some cardboard. Display your shoe patterns around the room.

You can make the games as simple or as complicated as you want. A great way to practice role-play, learn about coins and simple maths and change giving.
Practice Measuring Shoes
This is a great way to incorporate the fact about barleycorns above and practice learning to measure length.
Print out the shoe templates in different sizes. Use the settings on the printer to fit different numbers of shoes onto each piece of paper.
Then grab some barleycorns or make some shapes that are a ⅓ of an inch long. See how many barleycorns long each of the shoe templates are.
Next, see how long each shoe is in cms. Great to practice using a ruler and learning about length.
