  1. Playing out a story is a great idea thanks. I can't believe i hadn't thought of that. This is my first time playing along and i'm looking forward to checking out others play. i'm particularly interested in outdoor play ideas as i'm trying to get my daghter outdoors more.

    We love that book! My kids just giggle and giggle at the ending. How fun to play out the story. We read it before doing a sink/float activity.

    Come and play with us at the beach. Our server was down but it is back and we are once more playing. :)

  5. Playing out stories is such a fabulous learning tool :) and fun too.

    I love that book and so do my girls, Pamela Allen is one of our all time fav. childrens authors – for a while there Annie would insist we only read Pamela Allen, no one else was good enough for her bedtime story :grin:

    I'm joining in We Play this week with some play silks :)
