Adding a simple roadscape hand drawn on a large piece of cardboard has brought together a number of our imaginative play elements – small houses and people figurines, a wooden park and market garden, road signs and vehicles. I know it is simple and not flash (and I could easily add more details with some coloured felt tipped pens – maybe tomorrow!) but it provides a wonderful platform for extended play scenarios. As well as the regular daily occurrences of a dollhouse family, Immy has created storylines involving trips to the vet in an ambulance for a wayward kangaroo (we have a beware of kangaroos crossing sign), harvesting vegetables for dinner and for sale in a store, adventures on the way to school, and on trips to the park.
