Slow play Mondays | have tons of cardboard boxes left over from a trip to @marketflowers last week, asked Floss if she wanted to make a boat but she decided this one looked like a bed and has filled it with ‘squishy things’ and books and has taken up residence in it 😂😂 that’s my girl

It’s all been a bit 💩 here lately with two poorly kids. No preschool, no groups, no play dates, no park and no walks in the woods so really looking forward to #30dayswild with @thewildlifetrusts and start our challenge in 21 days. You get sent a pack to inspire you to get out and do more things outdoors photo by @dani_cox #outdoors #parentingideas #activitieswithkids #outdoorswithkids #getoutsideandplay #getoutside #playinspiration #signupforyourpack

DOLL NAPPIES... isn't this just the sweetest print! I haven't ventured too far into the making of dolly clothing, but I do love making these nappies as they really add value to doll play experiences, esp as most little ones love to pretend their dollies are their babies. 💗

I had seen versions of the Grimm’s Falling Rainbow floating all around IG, so today was the day we decided to give it a go! After several missteps (see IG stories for a chuckle) I can’t tell you how satisfying it was to see the rainbow do it’s thing! 🌈 .

GRIMMS RAINBOWS AND PASTEL ARCHES... Q&As... .What age are these suitable for?? As they are very open ended, they are relevant to all ages, but at each age/stage the child will use them differently- that is the real beauty 💗 They are often popular as a birthday gifts including first birthdays as its something that grows with your child and just lasts forever. ..
.which size should I get? I think most of us "big kids" want the large one hehe. 👐👐 but if your budget doesn't stretch quite as far, you can explore all the same concepts with the medium as the large. The large just offers a little more in terms of the scale of patterns and designs you could create and experiment with. .
They look pretty but what can a younger child actually do with it? Being open ended means there is no right or wrong way to play.. and with all the modelling they will get from watching you play with it 😉, they will be keen to join in. A few examples on play with the rainbows... at around 13 months my toddler would pick up turn the pieces, often upside down and rock them, at nearly 2 she is starting to stack and build, knock down, match colours with the people etc. At 3, 4yrs they may begin to build, make shapes/pictures with the arches, use it in imaginary and small world play, they become houses, tunnels, bridges, cradles. 4,5,6 you may start to see more complex structures and pictures and experimenting with the different shapes and properties of movement etc...and still of course small world play. the options are limitless really. And of course big kids including us still love to build a d create with these beauties..
.
I should also add the endless learning opportunities... imagination, creativity, spatial awareness, properties of materials, colour recognition and matching, patterning, seriation, size and shape, exploration, curiosity... I could go on all day! .
.I hope this helps ! But yes they really are worth it!! ❤❤ website link in bio to order yours today! tag friends and Use code PLAY10 🤗

Inspiration for tomorrow’s activity! Can you make a rainbow with the play doh? How many ways can you make a rainbow? Great activity for fine motor skills, copying, matching, colour recognition, vocabulary expansion and consolidation. .

Today’s car boot sale treasures 😍 All for £7.
I’m totally delighted with the ‘Earthwise’ book (by Carol Petrash) which has been on my wish list for quite some time. I try to buy books second hand if I can, and this one is going to inspire lots of activities I’m sure.
The large wooden bowl and baking tray (for what? I’m not sure!) have already been repurposed into play invitations which I’ll be listing on Tuesday. I’m awaiting inspiration for the beautiful carved wooden tray.
I bought a bundle of 40 of those teeny tiny glass jars, with lids. I’ve already put ten of them to good use this afternoon. I’ll share some photos with you in the morning...
