We Play: Play. Live. Learn

When I saw these little shaped popstick people at a local art and craft store I knew that Immy would love them. And she does!

Immy painted their clothes with watercolours and helped me to add the hair and facial features.

And then our new ‘friends’ were off to dance classes. Followed by a play in our block structure park. And a sail in a margarine boat on the stormy seas of a blue play cloth. How lovely it is to make our own, simple toys to play with.

Have you and your child/ren made your own play things lately? What did you make?

  1. They are just adorable!
    On the weekend, my three year old daughter and I made a storybook using folded paper and glitter stickers of animals. We drew ponds and trees and decorated them with sparkly ducks and monkeys. It was heaps of fun. But the best part was her reading it to her dad as part of bedtime books that night. Very cute!

  2. The popstick people are fantastic. This morning my son has been playing with laminated faces of himself, hubby and I. I hope to post about that one next week.
