Her play space is close by. It is simple, with an emphasis on natural toys and items that can be used in many ways. Of course there are a few plastic bits and bobs...but in general we opt for objects that are real and have a natural element. Toys that enable her to imitate.
My sweet girl plays for hours. Sometimes I am included in her adventures, other times not. Changing nappies, preparing tea parties, packing Molly's lunchbox, preparing the pushchair for an overseas flight to see Nanny Joan and laying the table for a birthday celebration.
She will be three in March next year and already I can see imaginary play beginning. It really is magic to watch her.
A lovely article on learning through play here.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend. I hope to post some meal inspiration for Christmas and some more on Advent in the coming days.
