One of the things I love about the whole concept of ‘little worlds‘ is their unlimited potential for all types of play interactions. Depending upon the child and his or her interests, the world can become a canvas for all manner of exciting adventures. As well, play can continue on from one day to the next or each new day can introduce a whole new cast of characters.
We purchased a cheap birdhouse from the hardware store and Immy then asked if we could bring out her little felt birds.
And then she walked over to her easel which is also outside at the moment and proceeded to draw the bird’s house. As she drew she talked about what she was drawing, each line represents a room or piece of furniture – the bath, the bed and the playroom, and each of the ‘spots’ is a bird.
I must say the biggest thank you to Teacher Tom for inspiring our little world.
